Adam Gregory Moves To Big Machine Records
[USPRwire, Tue Aug 05 2008] Big Machine Records has entered into a long-term promotion and distribution agreement with Midas Records and No Strings Attached Entertainment for recording artist Adam Gregory.
Gregory's debut single, "Crazy Days," is experiencing great success at Country radio, rising this week to #35 at Country Aircheck, #37 at Billboard/ R&R and #23 on the Music Row chart, after only 13 weeks on the charts.
In making the announcement, Big Machine Records President & CEO Scott Borchetta said, "Adam is an artist who I would have signed to the label had I discovered him first! He is a great young singer, songwriter and performer and the Big Machinists are all very excited to be working with him. His forthcoming album is going to turn some heads."
Gregory joins a roster at Big Machine that includes Taylor Swift, Trisha Yearwood, Garth Brooks (exclusive radio marketing partner), Jack Ingram, Danielle Peck, and Fisher Stevenson.
"I'm really looking forward to a long relationship with the Big Machine family," says Gregory. "The team at Midas Records has been wonderful to me and I've made some great friends at radio as a result."
Lawrence Mathis of NSA Entertainment and Gregory's manager says the agreement represents a significant milestone in Adam's career. "Big Machine brings so much to the table, and with their help we believe Adam is poised to make a major impact in country music."
Midas Records' Brad Allen adds, "It is a truly exciting prospect to be working with Big Machine and helping advance the career of Adam Gregory."
Gregory is a native of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, but permanently relocated to Nashville last year. After signing his first record deal at 13 years old, he grew up on the road, opening for the likes of Keith Urban, Alan Jackson and Lonestar. With nearly a decade's worth of experience making records and several Top Ten hits and Gold records in Canada, Gregory is set to release his first album to the U.S. Market.
He is currently wrapping up a radio tour that has kept him on the road since April, visiting over 100 radio stations and making numerous live appearances, including multiple performances at this year's CMA Music Festival. Gregory is profiled in the August 11th issue of Country Weekly, currently on newsstands.
