Healthcare entrepreneur GLEN BLASCHKE and songwriter TAMMY HYLER have announced the launch of BIG COUNTRY RECORDS and BIG COUNTRY ENTERTAINMENT. The NASHVILLE-based full-service label has signed singer/songwriter MORGAN TOBIAS, whose debut single will be released to Country radio this spring. BLASCHKE and HYLER will serve as President and VP/Creative, respectively. Additional staff hirings will be announced shortly.
BLASCHKE said: "The mission and purpose for BIG COUNTRY RECORDS are uniquely simple: to bring extraordinary artists and their music to the public. We believe that by focusing on an efficient process that places creative control in the artist's hands, we can create an independent music label that throws off the yoke of the traditional music industry. When we place emphasis on the Artist, we involve them in every facet of their career, and focus on that artist -- one at a time -- until their success is achieved."
HYLER has penned several #1 songs and Top 40 hits for artists like MARTINA McBRIDE, COLLIN RAYE and SHANIA TWAIN, as well as other cuts for GEORGE STRAIT, JOURNEY, SARA EVANS, JAMIE O’NEAL and more. She’s also produced songs for major motion picture soundtracks including “Runaway Bride,” “Confessions Of A Teenage Drama Queen” and “New In Town.”
HYLER said of their flagship artist: "Meeting MORGAN for the first time, you could swear you see bluebirds flying around her head and little forest animals gathering at her feet. Her completely enchanting personality is beautifully paired with a smooth as satin vocal tone that grabs the listener and takes them to a place they don't ever want to leave. She has a dream...to hopefully make the world just a little bit better place with her music, and we plan to help her do just that!"
BIG COUNTRY RECORDS and BIG COUNTRY ENTERTAINMENT will be located at 44 Music Square West in NASHVILLE.
