Just days after the news of his departure from Sony Music Nashville’s Columbia Nashville imprint broke, it was revealed that Tim McGraw has found a new (old) label home.
During the Big Machine Label Group luncheon showcase on the final day of Country Radio Seminar 2020, BMLG President & CEO Scott Borchetta surprised the room full of country radio programmers and music industry insiders with the news that the superstar has returned to the label group’s flagship imprint Big Machine Records. McGraw was on hand as well, taking the stage to share his excitement over this next chapter.
Billboard simultaneously broke the news, with Borchetta telling the publication, “I am so proud to welcome Tim McGraw back home to Big Machine Records. We can’t wait to jump back into the mix with Tim and his great team and get his incredible new music out to the world.”
During his initial stint with Big Machine, McGraw released three albums: 2013’s Two Lanes of Freedom, 2014’s Sundown Heaven Town and 2015’s Damn Country Music.
McGraw’s next album, Here On Earth, will mark his first solo effort since 2015. The superstar will hit the road in support of the yet-to-be-announced project on his massive Here On Earth Tour, which kicks off July 10.
