If you, like me, marvel and admire the success of indy label Broken Bow and wonder sometimes how they appear to be able to do what the many, many other small imprints out of Nashville don't seem to be able to, here's a clue as to what a class act this little label is, as their values shine through and set an example for others to follow (again):
BROKEN BOW RECORDS STEPS UP TO HELP HURRICANE VICTIMS IMMEDIATELY
Nashville, TN. – (September 2, 2005) – It was announced today by Broken Bow Records’ President/CEO Benny Brown that the record label, in conjunction with RED Distribution and CRT Custom Products, will donate $1 per unit sold on all BBR CD products including Craig Morgan, Jason Aldean, Joe Diffie and Sherrie Austin from today through 2005. These funds will benefit the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund to assist the Hurricane Katrina victims.
Hurricane Katrina has left a trail of devastation throughout Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama. Much of the Gulf Coast is obliterated and floodwaters continue to rise in the overwhelmed city of New Orleans. Millions of people are suffering and desperately need water, food, shelter and medical care today, as well as help coping with what promises to be a major long-term recovery effort.
"The devastation is overwhelming and we all need to help in the relief effort as quickly and with as much compassion as possible,” said Benny Brown. “Effective immediately, Broken Bow Records will donate $1 per unit sold on all BBR CD products with the hope of raising one million dollars by the end of the year. We may be considered a small company by some, but I'm proud to say that everyone at BBR has a huge heart when it comes to helping others and with a team like ours, great things can happen!”
Katrina engulfed thousands of homes and decimated the landscape in what could become the most destructive storm in U.S. history. The magnitude of this disaster will result in relief assistance requirements for weeks and months ahead.
