    2017 Country Power Players: The Star Maker

    2017 Country Power Players: The Star Maker

    THE STAR MAKER
    Cindy Mabe,
    44
    President, Universal Music Group Nashville


    “It was the most gratifying moment of the past year,” says Mabe of her reaction to UMG Nashville signing Carrie Underwood to Capitol Records Nashville in late March -- a surprise deal following the country superstar’s decision not to renew with Sony Nashville after a fruitful 12-year run that culminated in the release of her 2015 album, Storyteller. (The LP has sold over 1 million albums and yielded four top 10 singles on the Country Airplay chart.) One reason for Underwood’s move, according to industry sources: the opportunity to work again with Mabe, who was at Sony Nashville when the 2005 American Idol winner released her first album, Some Hearts, and was involved in rolling out the record, which went on to sell 7.5 million copies. With Underwood back on the same team, Mabe says, “We are working with Carrie on a lot of goals, including making her a global star.”



    this next era is gonna be something to watch

    Carrie's songs zoom to the top so fast the era is over before we realize it has begun. I agree with him -- if you're going to push her singles to the top so fast, then release at least 5 and let us enjoy each era a little longer. I, personally, loved this long chart run.

    The era. Release at least 5 singles. Let them grow on the charts more naturally. Let them rack up higher sales and streams. "The Fighter" has been going for what, almost 30 weeks? Let a Carrie song last over 20 weeks. Let us enjoy the era, over a few years instead of like 15 months.
