Roy Clark pens new record deal

Nashville Records, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: NPYC) would like to announce that it has signed guitar virtuoso and Grand Ole Opry star Roy Clark as the latest artist for its upcoming Christmas compilation album. As previously announced, the album will be distributed to major retail outlets throughout the U.S. and will be broadcast on 2,000 radio stations including Billboard channels. The signing of Clark adds another accomplished artist to a growing list of performers — both new and established — on the Nashville Records label.

In the 1970s, Roy Clark symbolized country music in the U.S. and abroad. Between guest hosting for Johnny Carson on “The Tonight Show” and performing to packed houses in the Soviet Union, Clark brought country music into homes across the world. His string of country hits included numerous Top Ten singles such as “I Never Picked Cotton,” “Thank God and Greyhound,” “Come Live With Me,” “Somewhere Between Love and Tomorrow,” “Honeymoon Feelin,'” “Yesterday When I Was Young” and “If I Had It to Do All Over Again.” His superb banjo and guitar playing brought a string of awards including Guitar Player of the Year from the Academy of Country Music, Musician of the Year from the Country Music Association and a Grammy for Best Country Instrumental Performance. Clark has also co-starred on the silver screen with Mel Tillis, in the comedy “Uphill All the Way.”

As one of the hosts of TV’s popular show “Hee Haw” for more than 20 years, Clark picked and sang and offered his unique country humor to over 30 million viewers a week. A superb entertainer, Clark has always drawn crowds at venues as diverse as Las Vegas, Atlantic City, and the “Opry.” Nashville Records President Gene Sibbett observed that “Clark’s middle-of-the-road approach has filled a national void, with this super-picker offering country music that is harder-edged than Kenny Rogers but softer and more accessible than Waylon Jennings.” A list of Roy Clark’s accomplishments and audio clips can be read and heard at the Company’s website.
