Capitol Christian Music Group has rebranded its EMI CMG Distribution to Capitol Christian Distribution (CCD).
"We are excited to introduce these changes as we reveal the new name, logo and updated website," said CCD Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing Greg Bays. "Over the years, we've been known by different names, but we are still the same team committed to deliver market leading services for our retailers and distribution partners. While we are unveiling a new name, our vision and mission remains unchanged—to impact the culture and resource the church."
The rebranding move comes after EMI Christian Music Group was recently renamed as Capitol Christian Music Group—part of the newly launched Capitol Music Group, which includes Capitol Records, Virgin Records, Blue Note, Astralwerks, Harvest, Caroline and the Capitol Studios.
With more than 35 years of serving Christian retail, EMI CMG Distribution was named Billboard's top Christian distributor for the 15th time in the past 17 years.
The newly named division distributed four Top 10 Billboard 200 chart debuts last year, including TobyMac's GRAMMY-winning Eye On It (ForeFront Records), the first Christian album in 15 years to top the Billboard 200. It also recently distributed another Billboard 200 No. 1 release with Chris Tomlin's Burning Lights (sixstepsrecords).
