Featuring two country songs from two prominent country artists, this catalog offers an opportunity to earn for a Life of Rights investment term from nearly the beginning.


The majority of this catalog’s earnings come from international sources, at 73% of the last 12 months. This isn’t surprising, given Paul Brandt’s popularity in the Canadian market and the fact that his track “All About Her” brought in 75% of earnings over the same period.

It’s worth noting that this catalog features relatively new releases from 2018. This means we cannot calculate quarterly averages and growth rates as finely as older catalogs. Also, international earnings combine all format sources into one bucket (radio, streaming, retail, TV/film, etc.) without providing a breakdown for each. However, international earnings tend to follow domestic earnings in terms of format share. 


Paul Brandt’s introduction to the Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame in 2017 cemented him as one of the greats: with no less than 40 award nominations and wins over the course of his career. As such, it isn’t shocking to see that his contribution to this catalog of country tracks brought in the lion’s share of earnings, accounting for 73% of all-time royalties. 

This collection of songs also includes contributions from Jason Aldean. Aldean, a 4x Grammy-nominee brings “Dirt to Dust”—a track from his 2018 RIAA Gold-certified album Rearview Town which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200.

Key Drivers

International Earnings. The majority of this catalog’s earnings come from abroad — at 73% of last year’s earnings. These foreign royalties including income from radio, streaming platforms, TV/Film, and other international sources outside the United States. Although international royalty distribution can lag behind domestic payments and arrive with limited detail, as the winner of this auction you’ll be entitled to any past performance royalties paid by BMI, regardless of when they were earned.
