As ALL ACCESS reported two weeks ago (NET NEWS 3/23) , ALAN JACKSON and CAPITOL RECORDS NASHVILLE Pres./CEO MIKE DUNGAN announced that JACKSON’s new music will be released as a joint venture between ACR (ALAN’S COUNTRY RECORDS) and CAPITOL/EMI RECORDS NASHVILLE.
TODAY (4/6), JACKSON and EMI MUSIC PUBLISHING have extended their relationship with a new global deal.
JACKSON, who has sold nearly 60 million albums worldwide, first signed with EMI MUSIC PUBLISHING more than 10 years ago. The new co-publishing agreement will see EMI MUSIC PUBLISHING’s network of global offices represent JACKSON’s catalog of songs including “Where Were You (When The World Stopped Turning),” “Remember When,” “Good Time,” “Small Town Southern Man” and “Drive.”
“I write hurtin’ songs, cheatin’ songs, drinkin’ songs, lovin’ songs … and to me, those things are just a part of life and part of country music,” said JACKSON. “The folks at EMI have been there with me for a good while, and I’m glad we’re going to keep on working together.”
EMI Group CEO ROGER FAXON commented: “We’re very happy to have extended our long-time relationship with ALAN at EMI MUSIC PUBLISHING, especially as it comes so soon after he signed a new partnership with EMI RECORDS NASHVILLE. ALAN is an incredible talent as both a songwriter and a recording artist, and we’re privileged that he is a part of the EMI family.”
