Broken Bow has gone from an independent label in Nashville to being one of the power players in country music. I think it goes back to the early ’00s when they had artists like Joe Diffie and Sherrie Austin on the roster.
Those were some good artists to have in the early days. Joe had huge success in the ’90s, but still had something to give in the ’00s. And Sherrie was cool and different.
Then Broken Bow really broke out with Jason Aldean and they’ve been on a steady rise every since.
Here is one of their new artists looking to breakout on the charts.
Headphones – Jackie Lee
I discovered this one for myself on Spotify. I can’t remember what playlist it was on. I think it’s been included on a few of the new country song playlists.
It looks like the song has been out for a few months already, but it seems to be on the rise still and that’s good. The song is certainly catchy. It’s modern country, but you can tell there are some traditional sounds in there.
It’s a playful love song about a guy that is head over heels for his girl. She’s kind of a free spirit and likes to have fun with life. And what’s not to love about that?
I don’t know if this one will continue to climb the charts. I’m behind the game on it being released, but sometimes it just takes a little while for fans to find out about new artists. It’s a hard time to be a new artist in Nashville.
The labels aren’t always patient with newcomers and sometimes the labels even wait for an artist to have a rising hit on their own before getting behind them.
Hopefully Jackie Lee can get his break because it sounds like he has something fans will like.
