NASHVILLE (CelebrityAccess) – Jason Aldean has expanded and extended his partnership with BMG in a new global deal beginning with his forthcoming album, 9, which is slated for release November 22 via BMG label Broken Bow Records.
Under the terms of the new deal, BMG will now distribute and market Aldean’s releases worldwide. Under his previous deal with Broken Bow, which was acquired by BMG in 2017, the label held rights in the US and Canada.
Aldean, who is a three-time Academy of Country Music entertainer of the year and a four-time Grammy nominee, has scored 23 No. 1s over the course of his career. He has clocked 15 billion streams and more than 18 million album sales, with his last four albums topping the Billboard 200 chart.
“I’m glad to have had BMG on board as part of the team the last couple years,” said Aldean. “It’s good to have them in my corner and I’m looking forward to keeping this thing going — and it’ll be cool if we get to pick up a few new fans overseas along the way.”
Added BMG CEO Hartwig Masuch: “An artist of Jason Aldean’s stature has the choice of any label he wants. It was far from a given when we acquired Broken Bow that Jason would agree to extend his relationship with us. We are delighted that he has not only extended but expanded his partnership with BMG. We look forward to working with him and his exceptional management team.”
