Stroudavarious Records launches

Monday, July 21, 2008 – Music veteran James Stroud announced the formation of a new label last week, and it's been reported that Willie Nelson, Lorrie Morgan and Darryl Worley are coming aboard. Stroud was the former head of Giant Records and DreamWorks Nashville.

The label will be called Stroudavarious Records and distributed by Sony RED.

Stroud has been a key record producer as well, working with Toby Keith, Clint Black and Alabama.

"Even though the business model of the music industry changes, the one constant has been the importance of the artists and their songs," Stroud said in a statement. "The vision of Stroudavarious Records will be for the creativity to take precedent and allow the music to take care of the business."

No official signings were reported, but Great American Country reported that Worley, Nelson and Morgan would work with Stroud.

Concert Review: Screams endure for Brooks – The crowd screamed constantly for Garth Brooks on the first of three nights. This was not the Beatles at Hollywood Bowl. No, his was a 54-year-old man - one that admitted to using his acoustic guitar more as a prop to hide his gut than to create live music. Sure, it's been a few decades since Brooks last mounted a significant concert tour.... »»»
