We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again: it is a new day in music and entertainment. But more and more individuals – artists, producers, songwriters, publishers, agents, managers, and promoters – are accepting these changes and beginning to ignite a revolution in the entertainment world. BE Music & Entertainment is doing exactly that, by doing what most record labels have neglected to do anymore – taking the time to develop artists and answer their questions.

BE’s mission – which combines the three core principles of passion, experience and vision and offers a full-range of services in management, production, publishing and artist development – is embodied in the spirit of its President: Christian music industry leader Michael Blanton, the man who helped foster the careers of Amy Grant and Michael W. Smith, and who has made significant advancements in artist development throughout his 30+ years in the entertainment business.

Now, the CCM Indie Artist Network is proud to introduce “Music Business: Answered” – a new feature beginning this month where Michael Blanton will answer your questions about the music industry, being an independent artist, how to enhance your career, and everything in between. Readers are invited to submit their questions to CCM Indie and each month, Michael will select a question to address that will be featured in that month’s issue of CCM Indie. The result will be a continually updated forum built for you, by you.

So, do you have a question about the music industry? We want to hear from you! Visit the CCM Indie blog here and fill out the fields provided. We’re looking forward to hearing from you!
