Toby Keith’s Show Dog Records merges with Universal South

Country’s bad boy Toby Keith aligns with a powerful ally. Show Dog Nashville and Universal South have now merged to become Show Dog Universal.

Show Dog Universal will still have the feeling of being an independent label with strong and personal relationships with all our artists,” Toby Keith said. “That is what Show Dog Nashville and Universal South have always been about, but combine the two labels and you have a powerhouse with more staff and better opportunities for our artists. I look forward to working closely with my friend and partner Mark Wright.”

“The launch of this new company creates even more value for our combined artists, employees and business partners,” Wright said. “Together, our best-in-class team will create even more opportunities for our artists, while expanding the services we offer. This is truly one-plus-one equaling three. Moreover, I am delighted to be partnering with Toby, with whom I have shared a close friendship for many years. His remarkable achievements as an artist and businessman define creative leadership at its very best. He will be invaluable to taking this company to even greater heights.”Country Music Photo Gallery

    To Whom It May Concern
    My name is Gerald S. Marcolongo. I have been writing and playing music since the mid 80’s. I have played in a number of bands experiencing limited success. With the aid of my computer and technology. I have new opportunities for my music. I perform the lead and backup vocals on all of my songs. I also write my own lyrics and compose my own music. If you wish to hear more of my music. Go to {My Space.Com/Gerald Marcolongo}. I have 23 songs ,but only the first 6 have guitar work done to them.The others only have computer Drums ,my Bass and my Vocals. With fighting a up hill battle. I came to the conclusion to put my band life behind me and go solo ,and perhaps write songs. I realize I may be too old for a recording contract but, perhaps someone else can use them.

    Sincerely Yours
