Big Machine Label Group has teamed up with Clear Channel to provide country music fans with a commercial-free internet radio station for Clear Channel’s iHeartRadio. This service will provide exclusive interviews, recordings and other content from Big Machine’s artists. This is great news for Taylor Swift, Jewel, Rascal Flatts, Martina McBride, Reba and The Band Perry fans. They are set to launch with an exclusive preview of Justin Moore’s Outlaws Like Me album.
iHeartRadio has ipad and iphone applications, so mobile streaming is possible for country fans. Clear Channel is the competition of Sirius/XM sattelite radio with over 750 stations available online. It’s expected that the Big Machine station will continue the iHeartRadio’s “From The Vaults” feature which replays archieved interviews and features of popular artists.
“We’re thrilled to add Big Machine Radio to iHeartRadio’s lineup of digital-only, commercial-free stations,” said Clay Hunnicutt, Senior Vice President of Programming for Clear Channel Radio. “From Taylor Swift to Rascal Flatts to Reba, their roster of artists is a virtual who’s who in today’s country music. We’re sure fans will be as excited as we are!”
