Country star ALAN JACKSON and CAPITOL RECORDS NASHVILLE President/CEO MIKE DUNGAN have announced that JACKSON’s new music will be released as a joint venture between ACR (ALAN’S COUNTRY RECORDS) and CAPITOL/EMI RECORDS NASHVILLE. JACKSON is heading into the studio soon and his next project will be released and marketed through CAPITOL’s EMI RECORDS NASHVILLE.
JACKSON left long time label ARISTA in JANUARY. ACR was formed by JACKSON when he released his 2002 “Let It Be Christmas” album, followed by the platinum-selling “Precious Memories” in 2005.
“MIKE DUNGAN and I go way back. He was right there during my early days at ARISTA, and it’s going to be great to work with him and his team there at CAPITOL,” JACKSON said. “I’m happy to be joining the hottest label in NASHVILLE.”
“Everyone here at CAPITOL/EMI is beyond thrilled to represent ALAN JACKSON,” added DUNGAN. “A true American original, a future Hall of Famer, and an artist whose work to date is not only commercially successful, but is of historical cultural significance. We are honored, and we are jacked!”
