WMG owned indie distributor ADA Worldwide has partnered with multi-platinum country artist Sara Evans and her indie label, Born To Fly Records. ADA will support the Nashville-based label with sales and distribution globally.
Launched in 2017, Born To Fly Records is home to Evans’ critically acclaimed eighth studio record, Words, which was named one of Billboard and Rolling Stone’s Top Country Albums of the Year. The ACM Female Vocalist of the Year is currently prepping her new album, due later this year.
“As ADA continues to put an emphasis on building its Nashville roster, we are thrilled to join forces with such an acclaimed, decorated artist in country music such as Sara, as she enters this phase in her career,” says Warner Music Group President of Independent Music & Creator Services, Eliah Seton.
"On behalf of Sara, Born To Fly Records and Collective Artist Management, we’re excited to enter into this partnership with ADA and the overall Warner team,” said Craig Dunn, Vice President, Collective Artist Management. “Their passion and track record speak for itself and we’re thrilled to have Sara Evans alongside the long list of accomplished artists on the ADA roster.”
Adds ADA President, A&R and Label Services, Kenny Weagly, “We’re very excited to partner with Sara on the next steps of her already-lauded career, which is illuminated with No. 1’s, prestigious awards, platinum success and numerous tours. In addition to our partnerships that include Aaron Watson’s Big Label Records and Broken Bow Records, joining forces with an artist such as Sara further exemplifies ADA’s focus and commitment to the music coming out of Nashville.”
