Clear Channel And Black River Sign Rev Share Deal
Nashville independent label Black River Entertainment's roster includes country stars Craig Morgan and Kellie Pickler. CEO Gordon Kerr says, “Every day at Black River, we are focused on finding ways to develop our roster of incredibly talented artists for a long-term career in country music. We are thrilled to enter into this partnership with Clear Channel and to deliver more for our artists while continuing to bring fans music they love.”
Today's agreement will allow Black River’s artists to share in revenue for airplay on Clear Channel’s broadcast and digital radio streams. This includes Clear Channel’s 850 AM/FM stations serving 150 markets, as well as the iHeartRadio digital radio platform. Black River Entertainment, which is comprised of Black River Records, Black River Publishing, and Black River Management, also owns two Nashville studios – Sound Stage and Ronnie’s Place – that have served as the birthplace for some of America’s best country recordings of the past few decades.
Clear Channel CEO Bob Pittman said, “Black River has proven its ability to find, develop, and promote an extraordinary set of artists with outstanding musical talent and a genuine passion for country music. Clear Channel is delighted to work together with Black River artists, helping lead the way to a sustainable digital music industry that benefits everyone – artists, fans, record labels, and broadcasters.”
