Music distributor CDX Nashville has announced the launch of CDX Records, a new boutique imprint for unique custom projects. Artist Paulette Carlson—best known for being part of the ACM and CMA Award-winning band Highway 101—is the label’s flagship artist.
Joe Kelly, President of CDX Records says: “While CDX Nashville’s core business remains music distribution to radio and influencers on behalf of all labels, in today’s music business we saw an opportunity to use our collective years of relationships and experience in label operations to help artists further by actually getting their music into the hands of the consumers. We are thrilled and excited that Paulette has chosen CDX Records to be the company that will bring her new music to the world. Paulette Carlson has a proven track record of hits, an active fan base, and the track shows how she still sings amazingly… Paulette is preparing to hit the road for a 2022 tour and while crossing the country will be visiting her friends at country radio. CDX Records will be there every step of the way.”
Carlson started performing in a club band, writing music, and playing her guitar at 18. She moved to Nashville and eventually put together the band Highway 101. Within 18 months she and the band were at the top of the charts, winning Vocal Group of the Year awards from the Academy of Country Music and the Country Music Association.
Carlson’s new release, “Branded Soul,” will be available everywhere on Oct. 29. Written by Carlson, the track was produced and mixed by Mark Capps and recorded at Soundstage Studios.
“CDX Nashville has been known for a long time to be a very reputable company. I’ve known Joe Kelly for many years, and he’s just a really good guy. I feel very confident in his new CDX Records label division and their people, and I am very happy to be working with them,” Paulette says. “I like to call this song ‘Montana Americana’ because Montana remains a beautiful bastion of outlaw country, remnants of a culture idolized and sorely missed by America’s free spirits. This Montana Americana song, ‘Branded Soul,’ will bring out the free spirit in all of us.”
