Scott Siman, President of rpmentertainment, and Gary Overton, Chairman and CEO of Sony Music Nashville, today (9/12) announced an exclusive worldwide distribution and licensing agreement between the two companies.
Under this new relationship, Sony Music Nashville will exclusively distribute RPMe singles and albums to digital and physical outlets.

Maggie Rose’s “I Ain’t Your Mama” will be the first single under the arrangement, with a debut album to follow in February 2013.
“Sony gives us access to the world’s best record distribution system and we are honored that they believed in our new business model and musical vision,” said Siman. “We are on track and poised for an exciting future starting with Maggie Rose, and continuing with all of our future projects at rpme.”
RPMe is comprised of rpme records, rpme publishing and rpme management, with a roster including Rose, Yarn and Humming House, The Command Sisters, and Matt Ramsey.
