Word Entertainment acquire Fervent Records.

NASHVILLE-based Word Entertainment have announced the acquisition of Spirit-Led Records, which includes Fervent Records, home to such artists as BarlowGirl, Big Daddy Weave, By The Tree and others, to its label group. An independent artist driven label with 2005 sales to exceed $7 million, Fervent Records has become a wholly-owned subsidiary of Word Entertainment. The label will continue to operate with its current staff under the direction of its founder and president, Susan Riley, an eight-year veteran of the Christian music industry and one of the few women to own and operate an independent label in any genre of music. CR
