Multi-award-winning Country Music artist, David Frizzell, announces an expansion of his Nashville America Records label with a new distribution deal and the signing of new artist, Sarah Patrick.
For decades, Nashville America Records has been the label home for Frizzell's individual projects as well as the renowned Frizzell & Friends collaborations produced by the Country Music icon. Frizzell & Friendscollaborations have included Merle Haggard, Crystal Gayle, Johnny Lee, Gene Watson, Joe Stampley, Jeannie Seely, T. Graham Brown, Lacy J. Dalton, Bobby Bare, Helen Cornelius, Jimmy Fortune (Statler Brothers), John Cowan (New Grass Revival), Johnny Rodriguez, Amy Clawson, Marty Haggard, Rex Allen Jr., brother Allen Frizzell and niece Tess Frizzell. Now, Frizzell has opened the label to artists outside of his tight, creative circle of gifted family and friends, and for the first time, has signed a new talent to be welcomed into the Frizzell fold.
"I've always enjoyed producing, almost as much as performing," Frizzell says. "My passion has always been traditional country music, and I discovered a talented young lady who impressed me so much that I signed her to the label. This is a first for Nashville America Records, and I'm very happy with the team we've assembled."
Nashville America Records has inked a distribution deal through Nashville's Perry Music Group with Sony's The Orchard, the largest indie distributor in the world. With a publishing group at the core of the organization, (including the catalog of the late songwriter, Wayne Perry) Perry Music Group's joint venture as an imprint via The Orchard enables PMG to provide digital distribution in 243 territories globally. Perry Music, headed by Bryan Wayne Perry, also provides a variety of multi-faceted label services to accommodate their distribution agreements with their clients.
The indie record label will continue its longstanding relationship with Jerry Duncan Promotions of Nashville for radio promotion. The firm is an independent country record promotion company, focusing on small and medium market radio promotion. In business since 1982, Jerry and his team have promoted 65 Number One singles, numerous career breakthrough records by major artists including Blake Shelton, Brad Paisley, Jason Aldean, Tim McGraw, Toby Keith, Martina McBride, and others. The Duncan team has had success with artists launched on independent labels as well, including songs by Florida Georgia Line, Heartland, Colt Ford, Craig Morgan, Jason Aldean, and Alison Krauss.
