Capitol Nashville, the record label that is home to Keith Urban, Lady Antebellum, Dierks Bentley, Darius Rucker, Little Big Town, Luke Bryan, Eric Church and Emily West has announced the formation of a sister label. According to Music Row, the new imprint will be called EMI Records Nashville, and the first artist will be singer/songwriter Troy Olsen, a real life American cowboy whose debut album is due out later this year.

"Establishing EMI Records Nashville is part of our growth strategy and a way to provide artists a terrific creative home and a top notch, dedicated team to help build their careers," says Mike Dungan, President and CEO of Capitol Nashville.

"We couldn't be more pleased to have an artist as unique and groundbreaking as Troy christen the roster of EMI Records Nashville. This demonstrates our commitment to and investment in the country genre. Fasten your seat belt, because we have a lot more in store for fans and our partners in retail and radio."

Nashville's newest record label will announce more details in the coming weeks. EMI is the parent company of Capitol Nashville.
