Country singer Tracy Lawrence has launched Rocky Comfort Records (RCR), a partnership with his manager Laney Lawrence, to be based in Nashville.
The label will operate as a joint venture with CO5 Nashville (a division of CO5 Music) and an exclusive retail distribution agreement is in place with A2M Distribution.
As president of RCR, Laney Lawrence will oversee the operation of the label, while Tracy Lawrence will direct A&R. His first single, “Find Out Who Your Friends Are,” will be released to radio Aug. 21 with his first studio album on the RCR/CO5 Nashville imprint scheduled for release in early 2007.
CO5 Nashville will design and coordinate all national radio initiatives for RCR/CO5 Nashville. David Newmark, head of CO5 Nashville, will lead a team of radio promotion veterans that includes Trudie Richardson, Darlene Starr, and “Bubba” Wayne McManners.
