AVERAGE JOE’S ENTERTAINMENT has announced its collaboration with UNDERtone RECORDS and the addition of COREY SMITH to the roster. AVERAGE JOE'S expects an album release on SMITH in the first quarter of 2011.
“As a label, we are attracted to artists who are as passionate about the possibilities as we are. COREY has an undeniable talent as a songwriter and a performer who has a vastly-loyal legion of fans, and we are eager to help him expand upon that foundation with this venture while continuing to remain inspired and create great music,” said Label CEO SHANNON HOUCHINS.
SMITH adds: “The folks at AVERAGE JOE'S are actually everything but average. They're tightly knit, dedicated, passionate, talented and forward-thinking. They embrace uniqueness and authenticity and are appealing to a vast audience of Country fans who are under-serviced by the mainstream. Like me, they have learned to succeed on their own terms. This all makes it a very natural partnership and the first label relationship that simply makes sense to me. To say I am excited is an understatement.”
SMITH fans have downloaded over 800,000 free digital singles from the artists’ website to date, www.coreysmith.com.
