Big & Rich has charged into 2014 with the formation of their own label, Big & Rich Records. Kobalt Label Services (KLS) will be the official label services partner.
As Kobalt’s second Country signing, Big & Rich joins artists including Martina McBride, Prince, New Kids On The Block, and Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, who utilize KLS’ customized services and self-release their music. The duo’s currently untitled, forthcoming fifth studio album will release later this year. The project was recorded in Nashville and was produced by John Rich and Big Kenny.
The duo will release the album’s first single, “Look At You,” to radio soon. “Look At You” was penned by Rich and Shannon Lawson. New Revolution Entertainment (NRE) will provide national radio promotion. The company is led by Rob Dalton and Jeff Solima.
“2014 is a new milestone for us. We’re completely invigorated to be working with Kobalt and New Revolution and taking this new approach for this exciting album. The music is very fresh, and we’re in a new creative groove which we hope our fans and new audiences will like,” said John Rich and Big Kenny in a joint statement.
“All of us at NRE are over the top excited about this partnership. ‘Look At You’ is a very obvious sounding commercial smash. This project is top shelf and deep with big singles,” said Dalton.
Diarmuid Quinn, President of Kobalt Label Services North America, said, “I’m thrilled to be back in business with Big & Rich and I treasure my relationship with John and Big Kenny. We were lucky enough to sign them during my tenure at Warner Bros. and they’re two of the most prolific and creative artists I’ve had the opportunity to work with. They’ve delivered an incredible studio album to us that we are eager to help bring to the world. “
