Here's a chance to invest in some good old fashioned country music, with tracks from American artist Justin Moore and Canadian country star Johnny Reid. The catalog includes eight tracks and its earnings are nearly evenly split between the U.S. and Canada. Over the last 12 months, these songs have produced $3,558 in royalties.

There are five tracks from Justin Moore that provide 45% of this catalog's income. The titles, “I Could Kick Your Ass,” “Hank It,” and “Like There's No Tomorrow,” are all off his debut certified-gold album Justin Moore. That album reached No 3 on Billboard's Top Country Albums and enjoyed crossover success at No. 10 on Billboard 200 in 2010.

As for the Canadian portion of the catalog, Johnny Reid's “Out of the Blue” is the highest earning song, accounting for 42% of royalties. Off his fourth studio album Kicking Stones in 2007, the song peaked at No. 7 on the Canadian Country Charts. The album Kicking Stones was nominated for a 2008 Juno Award for Country Recording of the Year and certified Gold by the Canadian Recording Industry Association.

Finally, the catalog also contains a song from JJ Lawhorn, a country music up-and-comer, as well as a female anthem by Danielle Peck.

Key Drivers

Radio is the largest source of income with 43% of earnings. Many of these songs are more than five years old and still receive notable radio play. For the last six years, yearly royalties from radio have averaged over $1,200.

Songs that get radio play often build a foundation of streaming and other types of income as the radio royalties winds down, and this catalog is no exception. Streaming makes up 27% of this catalog's royalties to date, however in the last four quarters streaming shows a significant growth rate of 39%. As royalties from radio start to slow, we see income from streaming begin to rise.

Streaming royalties are also increasing worldwide. According to an RIAA report, on-demand streaming revenues increased over 100% in 2016.
