Nashville-based Category 5 Records has sacked its in-house radio promotion staff and has hired an outside firm, CO5 Promotions, to handle those services for the label.

Regional promoters Chris Borchetta, Joe Carroll and Joe Schuld have exited Category 5. Other regionals, including Nathan Cruise, Sam Harrell and Noel Davis, exited the label in recent weeks.

Category 5 VP of promotion David Shaw remains and will serve as a liason between the label and the CO5 team.

The label is home to country star Travis Tritt as well as newcomers Jerrod Nieman and Shauna Faegan. The label will release music from singer/songwriter Amanda Williams to AC and top 40 radio in the spring.
