7/22/20

The house that Jason and Shane built has had a pretty monumental year, with its artists racking up 600m+ streams collectively. Walker Hayes scored nearly half a billion streams worldwide, with his double-platinum “You Broke Up With Me” leading. The self-titled release from newcomer Teddy Robb, meanwhile, is the highest-consumed EP from a country act in five years. For her part, electrifying vocalist/tunesmith Caitlyn Smith earns plaudits across the board as her sophomore set, Supernova, has more than lived up to its title. Smith won the 2020 Critics Choice award for Best Original Song and was set to tour with Maren Morris and Little Big Town and open dates with George Strait when…well, you know. When touring resumes, she’ll crush it. On the executive front, Katie McCartney was upped to GM,  and the company’s newly formed in-house promo squad, led by VP Drew Bland, added team members Lisa Mastrianni, Steve Pleshe and Katelyn Lester.
