Region: United States of America
Target: Capitol Records Nashville
Background (Preamble): 09-21-2009 12:03 AM Local independent label Bleve Records reported last week that it has stopped promotion of its debut single, ”My First Ride,” following a cease-and-desist order from Capitol Records Nashville.
The song by Bleve artist Ronnie Milsap features Capitol Records Nashville artist Trace Adkins and was the lead first single from a multi-artist compilation CD due out Nov. 1. A statement from Bleve says, “Capitol Records has threatened legal action if Bleve Records does not immediately halt any further publicity or sales of ‘My First Ride.’”
We, the undersigned, call on Capitol Records Nashville to allow continued promotion on BLEVE Record’s new single entitled…’My First Ride.’
I signed #67.
Also, today is the 63rd birthday of Gram Parsons. And in commemoration of his birthday, the Gram Parson’s Petition Project is asking you give Gram a birthday present of your John Hancock on his petition to induct Gram to the Country Music Hall of Fame.
And never let us forget . . .
