According to Variety, Aldean has sold 90% of his recorded-music catalog to the indie Spirit Music Group…
And we’re talkin’ for a cool $100 million bucks.
The deal includes everything from his 2005 self-titled debut album, all the way up to his 2019 album 9. His longtime label, BBR Music Group, will keep its portion of his music rights.
Aldean weighed in on the move:
“It’s cool that a company like Spirit, that’s been around so long, has taken on my music catalog. It’s something really important to me, so I’m glad it’ll be looked after.”
Frank Rogers, CEO of Spirit Music Nashville, also discussed deal:
“Jason Aldean has been a consistent hitmaker and trailblazer in country music for nearly two decades. His recordings have helped define the sound of modern country music.
Spirit Music Group is excited to partner with Jason and we look forward to further championing these important recordings to the world.”
Jon Singer, Chairman of Spirit Music Group added:
“Jason Aldean is one of country music’s elite headliners and the breadth and depth of his work is undeniable. We welcome Jason’s impressive collection of works to the Spirit Music Group catalog and are committed to being an active partner in safeguarding and building upon the success of these recordings.”
If you were ever curious how Jason Aldean was doing financially, he’s about to get a whole lot more comfortable.
Then again, he already was…
I mean, here’s the backyard… at one of his houses.
