The tracks contained in this catalog were released throughout 2016 and feature two hits from High Valley along with tracks from Dallas SmithJason Aldean, and Ronnie Dunn.


Over the last year, 80% of the catalog’s royalties come from International sources… not surprising given High Valley’s Canadian roots. Streaming earnings come in second. International earnings typically combine several earnings formats into one lump payment, including streaming and radio. 


This catalog prominently features international hits from Canadian duo High Valley, comprised of brothers Brad and Curtis Rempel. The group has won three Canadian Country Music awards, including back-to-back nods for Group/Duo of the Year in 2015 and 2016.

“Young Forever” and “Dear Life” are both from High Valley’s 2016 album Dear Life. “Young Forever” was released as a promotional single for the album in both the United States and Canada. Interestingly, the song was also included on the Madden NFL ‘17 soundtrack and associated Spotify playlist. As the top-performing song in the catalog, "Dear Life" brought in 38% of earnings in the last 4 quarters, and “Young Forever” is not far behind at 35%. 

Also included is the No. 1 hit “Side Effects” by Dallas Smith, from the Gold-certified album of the same name. The song collected 20% of all-time royalties in the catalog so far, and has over 5 million streams on Spotify to date.

The remainder of the catalog includes tracks from the likes of Jason Aldean (ft. Kelsea Ballerini), and Ronnie Dunn. Collectively, there is some serious country music star power at work in this listing.

Key Drivers
