Big Machine’s Borchetta bolsters H’wood presence

• Big Machine Label Group prexy-CEO Scott Borchetta is the product of a music biz family: His father, Mike, did record promotion for Mercury, Capitol and RCA before moving to Nashville and starting his indie promotion firm.

• Borchetta’s resume includes stints at MTM Records (Mary Tyler Moore’s Music City label), MCA Nashville, DreamWorks Nashville and Universal Music Nashville. He started Big Machine in 2005, first signing the then-15-year-old Taylor Swift. She has since sold 22 million albums (including 5 million for her 2010 release “Speak Now”) and collected an album of the year Grammy for “Fearless,” the bestselling album of 2009.

• Big Machine’s roster also includes Rascal Flatts, which has logged two No. 1 country albums since joining the label in 2010, and recent signee Tim McGraw, a multiplatinum performer since the early ’90s. The Valory imprint’s top stars are singer-actress Reba McEntire and pop-gone-country vocalist Jewel.

• Three-year-old Republic Nashville, a joint venture with Universal Music Group, boasts longtime star Martina McBride and platinum family trio the Band Perry.

• In June, Big Machine Label Group signed an unprecedented agreement with Clear Channel in which the broadcasting giant will pay performance royalties for songs aired on its terrestrial stations.
