Ever since being officially shuttered in October of 2021, and then being purchased by Exceleration Music on October 23rd, 2021, fans of Bloodshot Records and the artists once signed to the label have been wondering what the future may hold. Up until January of this year, there was little to no word…
30 years ago, the independent record label Bloodshot Records was founded in Chicago by Rob Miller and Nan Warshaw, and quickly became one of the focal points and instigators of the independent country music revolution we’re currently enjoying the fruits of today.
