Concord Music Group is thrilled to announce the acquisition of storied American roots label Rounder Records. Celebrating its 40th year, Rounder boasts an impressive roster of current and catalog artists including Willie Nelson, Alison Krauss, Steve Martin, Robert Plant, Mary Chapin Carpenter and Béla Fleck.
Founded in 1970, Rounder played a major role in almost every American roots revival for the past four decades. Among the label's recent achievements, the Krauss and Plant pairing Raising Sand scored five Grammy awards last year, adding to Krauss' title of the most decorated female artist in the history of the Grammys.
The 3,000 masters in the Rounder collection now join Concord Music Group's over 10,000 masters, firmly establishing Concord as the world's most significant independent record company.
