QUARTERBACK RECORDS has announced a joint venture with veteran music executive JOHN ETTINGER and his newly-established artist management and consulting firm, ETTINGER TALENT ASSOCIATES (ETA). The partnership places QUARTERBACK founder CHRIS ALLUMS and ETTINGER as co-principals of QUARTERBACK RECORDS.
ALLUMS said: “This is a huge step for QUARTERBACK. JOHN’s reputation in NASHVILLE and throughout Country radio is one of integrity and success. We are very excited to begin this new era, and we expect to take a lead position in the profession of Country radio marketing.”
ETTINGER said: “I couldn’t be more excited to get going with CHRIS and his team. Together we plan to rewrite the understanding of what an independent label is and how it can partner with Country radio and Country artists.”
ALLUMS founded QUARTERBACK in 2003, most recently rolling out the debut single “Pray For You” with JARON AND THE LONG ROAD TO LOVE. ETTINGER TALENT was founded by ETTINGER this month and counts EMERSON DRIVE and singer ALISSA GRIFFITH as artist management clients (NET NEWS 8/24).
