BMG is confirms that it remains the long-term record company home of multi-platinum country superstar Jason Aldean. BMG will release the second installment of his new album MACON, GEORGIA on April 22 through its Broken Bow Records label and will be his label for his following next three albums. 

BMG moved to clarify the situation following the appearance of stories on Thursday (February 24, 2022) suggesting that investment fund Spirit Music Group had acquired Aldean’s catalog.

In fact, BMG remains Aldean’s label until at least 2030.

BMG Nashville President Jon Loba said, “We understand Spirit’s enthusiasm, but they are a little premature. We congratulate Jason on his deal and look forward to continuing to work with him exactly as we have for the past 18 years.”
