If you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em ... and then beat ‘em. Founded in 2015 as an expansion of Big Loud to take chances where others would not, Big Loud Records boasts an instant success story that is still unfolding. Right out of the gate, the independent firm sent then-newcomer Chris Lane’s “Fix” to GOLD-certified #1 status (the label’s first-ever release), and backed it up with two more Top 10 hits. Today, Big Loud Records continues to punch above its weight, adding big wins by signing proven star Jake Owen to the roster and returning him to the top of the radio charts. “I Was Jack (You Were Diane)” became a GOLD-certified #1 in 2018, and “Down to the Honkytonk” notched another GOLD-certified Top 10. Big Loud Records has also launched the career of party-starting phenom Morgan Wallen, who just scored back-to-back #1s on the Billboard Country Airplay chart with the PLATINUM-recognized “Up Down” featuring Florida Georgia Line and GOLD-certified “Whiskey Glasses.” The Big Loud Records family also includes lyrically gifted upstart HARDY and viral sensation Mason Ramsey, and so far its roster has accounted for more than 1.8 Billion on-demand streams in the US alone, and global totals topping 2.7 BILLION (Nielsen Music). As of July 2019, Big Loud Records was the #1 streaming market share holder among true independent Country labels and #6 overall (country currents YTD, Nielsen Music), with its reputation for shaking things up extending to staff as well. Big Loud Records VP/Promotion, Stacy Blythe, was awarded the year's top honor for SVP/VP at the 2019 CRS/Country Aircheck Awards.
