CDX Records new boutique imprint for unique custom projects that is part of the CDX Nashville family, is proud to announce that ACM Award-winning artist, Paulette Carlson (best known for being part of the legendary band Highway 101) is the label’s flagship artist. Her new release, “Branded Soul” is headed to radio and will be available worldwide for streaming and downloading through CDX Record’s relationship with The Orchard on October 29.
Joe Kelly, President of CDX Records stated, “While CDX Nashville’s core business remains music distribution to radio and influencers on behalf of all labels, in today’s music business we saw an opportunity to use our collective years of relationships and experience in label operations to help artists further by actually getting their music into the hands of the consumers. We are thrilled and excited that Paulette has chosen CDX Records to be the company that will bring her new music to the world. Paulette Carlson has a proven track record of hits, an active fan base, and the track shows how she still sings amazingly. Instantly recognizable voices are rare these days. When you hear this new single, you immediately recognize Paulette’s unmistakable vocals. Paulette is preparing to hit the road for a 2022 tour and while crossing the country will be visiting her friends at country radio. CDX Records will be there every step of the way.”
“CDX Nashville has been known for a long time to be a very reputable company. I’ve known Joe Kelly for many years, and he’s just a really good guy. I feel very confident in his new CDX Records label division and their people, and I am very happy to be working with them," Paulette stated. "I like to call this song “Montana Americana” because Montana remains a beautiful bastion of outlaw country, remnants of a culture idolized and sorely missed by America’s free spirits. This Montana Americana song, "Branded Soul," will bring out the free spirit in all of us. ”
The single was written by Paulette Carlson, produced and mixed by Mark Capps and recorded at Soundstage Studios. Studio musicians include some of Nashville's biggest and well-known players including Eddie Bayers on drums, Mike Brignardello playing bass guitar, Michael Rojas on keys, Chris Leuzinger adding electric guitar and Michael Spriggs on acoustic guitar.
“The fire’s in the sky, he devil’s in his eyes
He’s ridin’ on the flames that we see rising
His horse is on the run, hell has come
He names the time and place for his vengeance
No way to stop the brand from burnin’
Stop the hurt from hurtin’
Stop the wheel from turnin’, oh oh no
He’s got a branded soul he’s got a branded soul�”
When the production crews and actors came to her hometown of Darby, Montana to film the TV series “Yellowstone,” there was an amazing symbiosis that occurred between Darby and the Yellowstone employees. The diversity and sheer numbers of the Yellowstone production staff sparked parties and events on a larger scale than what the town had been used to. The town of Darby, with its magnificent vistas and the rugged lifestyle of its inhabitants, imbued that signature frontier culture into the film crew and the series itself. Paulette witnessed this and decided to write her song, “Branded Soul,” to encapsulate that experience in song. The magic of this song lies within her weave of western American thematic material and the powerful rawness of her voice, the two aspects constantly playing, and building off one another.
About Paulette Carlson:
Paulette Carlson, the creator of the legendary Band Highway 101, started out in life as the precocious daughter of a farming family from the northern Midwest state of Minnesota. At the age of five, the folks already knew that she was going to be something in the entertainment world. Paulette always marched to a different drum, dancing and singing for the town folks at every opportunity she had. Famous in a small town was not enough and at eighteen she was performing in a club band, writing music, and playing her guitar. Ten years of working night after night in the clubs only sharpened her desire to go out into the world and do more. She moved to Nashville and eventually put together the Band Highway 101. Within eighteen months she and the band were at the top of the charts and accepting the highest awards the country music community could offer. Top group of the year awards for two years in a row from the Academy of Country Music and the Country Music Association pretty much confirmed that Paulette was a legend maker.
