A big congrats to COLUMBIA/NASHVILLE VP/Promotion JIMMY RECTOR and the "Big Red" staff as the label simultaneously places three songs in the Top 10 on the MEDIABASE Country chart. They include MONTGOMERY GENTRY's recent #1 smash "Back When I Knew It All," MIRANDA LAMBERT's "Gunpowder & Lead" and KEITH ANDERSON's "I Still Miss You."
This is the first time that COLUMBIA/NASHVILLE has achieved this feat.
In other SONY BMG/NASHVILLE news, the four imprints -- COLUMBIA/NASHVILLE, ARISTA/NASHVILLE, RCA/NASHVILLE and BNA RECORDS -- have averaged 45% airplay chart share over each of the past five weeks, and the label group altogether has had #1 singles on the MEDIABASE Country chart for half of the year to date (14 out of 28 weeks).
