By Markos Papadatos     Mar 10, 2020 in Music
Country star Trace Adkins announced that he has inked a deal with the newly relaunched Verge Records. Digital Journal has the scoop.
Music industry veteran Mickey Jack Cones helms Verge Records. This indie record label led to the formation of the worldwide label services company ONErpm, and Verge Records has an exclusive partnership. Throughout his tenure in the country music scene, Cones is an award-winning producer, engineer, performer, manager, songwriter, and publisher.
In the past, Cones collaborated with Trace Adkins on several of his studio albums such as Dangerous Man (2006), Cowboy's Back in Town (2010), Proud to Be Here (2011), his holiday album The King's Gift, and Love Will..., and his most recent album, Something's Going On.
Adkins shared that he is excited about his merge with Verge Records. As a result, his drive to create and release new music is as strong now as when he first started creating music. "Mickey Jack Cones and I have collaborated on several projects, and I look forward to several more," Adkins remarked.
Cones went on to describe Trace Adkins as an icon in the country genre. He shared his excitement to be teaming up with him for the next chapter of his career. "I have had the privilege of working on all but two of Trace's records since 2005, so I don't take this partnership lightly." "Trace could snap his fingers and get a deal with any label in town. For him to choose Verge Records as his musical home means more than anything," Cones said.
"We have something to prove, and we're going to prove it," Cones exclaimed.
"Signing Trace to Verge Records is a full circle moment and one of the highlights of my career," Cones said. "He released his first record 'Dreamin' Out Loud' in 1996, which was the year I moved to Nashville. 10 years later, I began recording and producing his records. 15 years after that, I’m signing him to my record label."
Trace Adkins will release his first single with Verge Records entitled "Better Off" on March 20. It was co-written by Hillary Lindsey, Corey Crowder, and Liz Rose.
