Universal, Sony Rule the Row

Sony Nashville, the top post of which is currently open, plus Bob Morelli’s RED make up most of Sony Music’s place position. Sony Nashville accounts for about 16 of the Sony total, while RED (fueled by Broken Bow Music GroupBRE and 30 Tigers) grabs 11.3. The three major groups account for more than 90% of the market.

Here's the tally:

UMG 51.1

SONY 29.2

WMG 10.6

In other Music Biz news, about 70 folks have already signed up for the confab's Third Annual Metadata Summit. It’s gonna be more excitin’ than a tractor pull in a thunderstorm, or however that expression goes.
