Industry Vets To Head Country Crossing Records
"I am very pleased to have Evelyn and Susan join the Ronnie Gilley Entertainment family," Ronnie Gilley says. "I have confidence that artistic integrity will remain at the forefront as they lead Country Crossing Records with their proven unique and creative approach to the business."
Shriver ran one of the industry's most influential publicity firms and was the first female president of a major label in the history of country music when she took the helm of Asylum Records (part of the AOL Time Warner Music Group). With Nadler as Executive VP/A&R, the duo's collaboration at Asylum resulted in two Grammy wins during their first year of business. The women were also partners in the operation of Bandit Records.
"We've known Ronnie for several years and always have a good time working with him, which is important to us at this point in our lives and careers," Shriver says. "We're delighted to be reunited with Lorrie Morgan, whose voice we love and with whom we have a long relationship, and John Anderson, who is truly one of the most humble and unique stylists in country music. It's a different music world these days and it is exciting to play a role in Ronnie's extraordinary vision. 'Failure' is not part of his vocabulary so it is refreshing to work with someone who is still inspired by the challenges."
Current Country Crossing releases include Lorrie Morgan's A Moment In Time, We Are Enterprise: The Album To Benefit The Rebuilding Of Enterprise High School, Aaron Tippin's In Overdrive, John Anderson's Bigger Hands, and Lee Greenwood's Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas. An upcoming collection of standards from Louise Mandrell is planned for future release.
