There has been yet another huge shakeup in the world of independent country music, and Texas-based booking and management agencies. True Grit Talent Agency has been acquired by WME.
One of the hottest up-and-coming artists in all of country music is now signed to the roster of one of the hottest labels in all of country music. Announced Wednesday afternoon (3-29), West Virginia native Charles Wesley Godwin has signed to Big Loud Records, which is the home of Morgan Wallen.
True country fans don’t need to be told that trying to hold onto the roots of the music has been a war of attrition over the last 20 years or so. As more legends and oldtimers pass away or get put out to pasture each season, you search for stability and glimmers of promise as the heap of shoes to fill of the artists gone by grows.
Ft. Worth native and surging traditional country star Cody Jinks has announced that he’s signed with independent music juggernaut Rounder Records, and will be releasing his latest album ‘Lifers’. A new single “Must Be The Whiskey” will also be released. Part of Concord, Rounder is a massive label, yet still with an independent streak.
