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.

Sarah Patrick

Sarah Patrick has come to Nashville from the great state of Kentucky bringing with her a vast amount of beauty and talent. I am very proud and honored to take Sarah’s hand and lead her out onto the world stage… David Frizzell

“Unlike most of her contemporaries, Patrick isn't reinventing traditional country. She's taking it on its own terms and making it fresh and, I guess you'd say, Patrick-ian. If only you could still hear this kind of music in actual joints where the lights are dim, the smoke is thick, and the music is loud. So lift a beer glass to a gifted artist who, if we're all lucky, will make it happen.” ~Jerome Clark for RAMBLES

     Merle Haggard, David Frizzell, Helen Cornelius, Jimmy Fortune, Sonny Curtis and T Graham Brown together make up one unbelievable tribute and most of all an enjoyable account of Buddy’s short but dynamic career in music.

    “Merle starts this great tribute with his version of ‘Remember Me’. Jimmy Fortune, Helen Cornelius and David Frizzell are ending with their version of ‘Remember Me’. The songs in between are the reasons you will Remember and Love Buddy Holly!” — David Frizzell

So where does one begin, when you've had a dream for basically your whole life?  You do the best you can, sometimes you fit in and sometimes you don't.  I mean imagine, having the same dream for almost as far back as you can remember.  Now I know, I'm not the only one, that has been infected by this thing we call music.  But for those of you who may not know, if it ever really gets ahold of you, it never lets go. 

I've done a little recording, here and there.  But this is my first full-length album.  I hope you like it, it's a dream come true. 

 

A special thanks to Steve and Janice Adcock, Joey and Cassie Armstrong, Jill Brewer, Dee and Emily Hicks, Naamon and Alissa Marchais, all my co-writers and all the great musicians, singers and engineers who worked on this project.  An extra thanks to Jimmy Fortune, for coming out and slummin'.  My family, whom I love, every one.  Mom we all miss you. 

A special shout out to my uncles, Allen and David Frizzell.  I have been blessed, with an overabundance of cool Uncles.  I mean Lefty alone, would have been enough.  But that's a whole 'nother story.   Jimmy Clay Frizzell
