Written by Sean on November 2, 2018
Musician and member of the famous country band Rascal Flatts, Jay DeMarcus has recently launched his own Christian Record Label called Red Street Records. Held at a press conference at the Hutton Hotel in Nashville, TN. The first people to sign up are contemporary artists Avalon, & female vocalist Lauren James. Jay has also appointed Don Koch as General Manager of the company.
I always feel like I’m going back home every time I do work over there [in Christian music] because that’s where I started. I grew up in the church and loved contemporary Christian music. I go back to the early days of when it first started with the likes of Amy Grant and Michael W. Smith. Those people that really pioneered are heroes of mine. It’s great to always ‘come back home’ and feel like I’ve never skipped any time. They’ve always welcomed me back with open arms. We just played the Doves the other night with Jason Crabb and they always feel like family to me. I want to be a part of bringing more visibility to the Christian music genre and give it some platforms that it may not have had before. I feel like as blessed as we’ve been with Rascal Flatts, I might be able through some of my own connections and avenues to give them some visibility in arenas they’ve never had before. That’s what I hope to be able to do. -Jay DeMarcus.
The desire of Red Street Records is to touch lives and spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ through music. To that end, we seek to partner with musicians who share this aim and who strive to achieve it through their innovative and visionary craft.
