Lambert, Randall launch Big Loud Texas

Monday, November 6, 2023 – Miranda Lambert and Jon Randall partnered to launch their own imprint in partnership with Big Loud Records, establishing Big Loud Texas.

Lambert and Randall will be directly involved in signing and developing artists on the roster. In addition, Randall will serve as President of A&R for Big Loud Texas while also contributing his expertise as a producer.

Longtime friends and creative allies, Lambert and Randall collaborated on 2021's GRAMMY-nominated "The Marfa Tapes," a raw and intimate recording together with Jack Ingram, with Randall also serving as a producer alongside Lambert and Luke Dick on her critically acclaimed 2022 album, "Palomino."

"As a teenager chasing my dreams in the honky tonks of Texas, Nashville seemed so far away," said Lambert. "Every time I'm back home, I get to hear the incredible talent our state produces, and I feel a responsibility to help get more of those Texas voices heard. I'm really excited to team up with my buddy Jon Randall and Big Loud to do just that. Get ready, y'all. We're bringing even more Texas to town."

"When I was a kid playing in bands and kicking around Texas, I knew that making music was all I wanted to do for the rest of my life," said Randall. "Since then, I've gotten to play with so many of my heroes produce legends and friends and travel all over the world, but all those roads lead right back home. I feel very blessed to share this full circle moment with one of my best pals, Miranda Lambert, and help some other dreamers chase their song around the world."

Randall has spent three-plus decades in the music business as a solo artist, guitarist, songwriter and producer. In addition to his longstanding relationship with Lambert, he has written with and for artists including Guy Clark, Kenny Chesney, Reba McEntire and produced projects for Dierks Bentley, Parker McCollum, Dwight Yoakam, Jack Ingram and Pat Green.

"I've admired what Miranda and Jon have done – both as musicians and as champions of young talent – for many years, so it's an honor to join forces in this way," said CEO/Partner Seth England. "One of the most important things to us at Big Loud is to align with cultural camaraderie. Texas exudes that spirit and no one knows that better than Miranda and Jon."

Big Loud Texas will serve as a dedicated imprint of Big Loud Records, a label that began in 2015. The label has enjoyed 18 number one U.S. airplay and 28 number one Canadian airplay hits and 70+ RIAA certified titles, the Big Loud Records roster is home to Morgan Wallen, Lauren Alaina, HARDY, ERNEST, Hailey Whitters, MacKenzie Porter, Larry Fleet, Charles Wesley Godwin, Stephen Wilson Jr., Dallas Smith, Maggie Rose, Griffen Palmer, Shawn Austin, Lily Rose, Jake Worthington, Ashley Cooke, Lauren Watkins and Zandi Holup.

CD review - Platinum Cynics might think that Miranda Lambert is presumptuous in entitling her fifth disc "Platinum" and, in effect, assuming she'll get her plaque for selling 1 million units. But Lambert says that isn't the case, but more a matter of style, looks and feel. Lambert also wrote and discovered a lot of excellent songs that fit her quite well in an album in which she exposes her inner self as she matures. That may never more apparent than in the country rocker Lambert wrote ...
CD review - Revolution Every once in a while an album comes along that restores your faith in mainstream country music. Miranda Lambert's "Revolution" is just such a recording. It's not revolutionary, as the title might suggest. Instead, this CD is chock full of topnotch songs that are both memorable and sincere and never sound slick or overproduced. (Come to think of it, such old school values as these may in fact be revolutionary around Nashville). Lambert vocalizes a bit like a little girl at ...
CD review - Crazy Ex-Girlfriend Even though it sounds like a cliche from the big book of country songwriting, the truth is that, when the timing's right, a loser can end up being the biggest winner of all. Today's object lesson comes from Miranda Lambert and her sophomore album, the follow-up to her 2005 near-platinum debut, "Kerosene." Imagine for a moment if the then-19-year-old had actually taken the crown in 2003's Nashville Star and then been forced into the studio within weeks to be primped and ...
