Big Machine label tekent een Brits duo

Het britse new country duo The Shires heeft een contract getekend bij het amerikaanse label Big Machine Label Group.

Hiermee schrijven ze geschiedenis, dit is de eerste keer dat het label een britse artiest contracteert.


Het album “My Universe”, het 2e album van The Shires, is het best verkochte country album allertijden in het Verenigd Koninkrijk.


Leden Ben Earle en Crissie Rhodes: “We are absolutely thrilled to sign with Dot Records in the U.S.A. The UK is our home, and we are proud of our success so far, thanks to Decca Records, but it’s always been a massive goal for us to build our presence and make a name for ourselves in the U.S.A. Scott was one of the first people to approach us as a band, after hearing our original demos nearly three years ago. His advice back then was clear, to break the U.K. first and come to the U.S. with a story. We took his advice and are extremely excited to be working with him and his team in the US. It is the home of country music and what better label could any act ever hope to sign with than Dot Records! Scott, Chris and their team are incredible at what they do and have worked with some of the biggest names in Country music history – we can’t wait to get started”.
