Congratulations. The Future is Now
I want to congratulate my client Apex Music Nashville for the successful launch of the new Jason Boland album "Comal County Blue". Last week the record was the #1 country album on iTunes, as well as #2 National Heatseeker on Billboard (#1 Heatseeker in the South Central Region), and 159 on Billboard's Top 200. This is fairly astounding for the second release on a new label. This is a testament not only to Boland's great talent but also to the savvy folks at Apex Music and the mighty Thirty Tigers distribution team. Its also all the proof I need that the major label distribution system is no longer dominant and more importantly, that you don't need a million bucks to get a good record noticed, if you are working with people who know what they are doing. This is very inspiring.
