EMI Christian Music Group has unveiled its new name as Capitol Christian Music Group (CCMG)—part of the newly launched Capitol Music Group, which includes Capitol Records, Virgin Records, Blue Note, Astralwerks, Harvest, Caroline and the Capitol Studios.

"We are very encouraged to be working alongside Steve Barnett and the amazing team he is building at the new Capitol Music Group," said CCMG President and CEO Bill Hearn. "Being part of this team and with the strength of the Universal Music Group Distribution system, we are now in the best possible position to invest in and serve our artists and writers and grow our business."

CCMG garnered three GRAMMYs with ForeFront Records' TobyMac and sixstepsrecords' Matt Redman during the 55th annual GRAMMY Awards, held Feb. 10 in Los Angeles.

EMI Christian Music Group was also recognized in the music category by CBA during its Second Annual Champions of the Faith Awards prior to the International Christian Retail Show last summer in Orlando, Fla.
