Warner Music Nashville & Pearl-Cohn High School Team To Release ‘Guitar Sale’
Warner Music Nashville celebrated the release of Pearl-Cohn High School-affiliated artist Arielle B’s new single “Guitar Sale” last week at the Warner Music office on Music Row. The release of “Guitar Sale” is the culmination of a long-standing partnership between the record label and the entertainment magnet school, which began in 2013 under Warner Music Nashville Chairman Emeritus John Esposito. The event included key members of the metro school district and staff from both Pearl-Cohn and Warner Music Nashville, including a speech by Co-Chair & Co-President Ben Kline.
“I am so proud of Arielle B. and the amazing students and staff at Pearl Cohn for helping us achieve this incredible milestone together,” said Stephanie Davenport, Warner Music Nashville A&R and Project Manager. “Releasing this song has been ten years in the making, and I hope it is the first of many for our partnership. I see great things in the future for Arielle B. and all of the students that had a part in ‘Guitar Sale!'”
