Music industry veterans James Stroud and Copperline Music Group (CMG)’s Dewayne Brown have launched Nashville-based label White Mustang Records. Stroud will serve as President of the label, which will be distributed by CMG via The Orchard. The label’s first signing will be announced next week.

Pepper Meiler has joined as Head of Marketing, while Michael “Benjy” Cruz has been added to lead Digital Product. Craig Campbell (Campbell Entertainment) will serve as Head of Media for the label and its artists. Stroud’s longtime associate and administrative assistant Tammy Luker also joins the label.

“The staff and myself here at White Mustang could not be more happy with the future of our new label and the soon to be announced roster,” said Stroud. “As we were building this label we looked to partner with the brightest and most forward thinking distribution companies available before deciding that CMG (Copperline Music Group) was the perfect match for us. Dewayne Brown (CMG SVP of A&R) and his staff at CMG work in the trenches everyday and we are so blessed to have them on board as we grow this new venture. “

“I cannot thank James Stroud and his amazing team at White Mustang Records enough for their vote of confidence in our team here at CMG,” said Brown. “James brings his love of the music and the amazing sound back to the country music format that I believe we have all been missing. The team they have assembled at White Mustang speaks volumes for itself. I’m very excited about the upcoming announcement of their roster and our partnership.”
