Brantley Gilbert & Justin Moore Pull Music From Spotify

Brantley Gilbert and Justin Moore are joining the ranks with Taylor Swift and Jason Aldean, pulling music from the popular streaming service Spotify.

Gilbert’s most recent album, ‘Just as I Am,’ and Moore’s latest, ‘Off the Beaten Path,’ are no longer available for streaming on Spotify, leaving just one single for listeners to consume as a teaser. According to Rollingstone, the Big Machine labelmates are taking a stand for fair compensation.

What do you think about artists pulling their music from streaming services?

Jason Aldean to Follow in Taylor Swift’s Footsteps?

Jason Aldean

Jason Aldean could be following in Taylor Swift‘s footsteps, removing music from the popular streaming service Spotify. Last week, Taylor pulled her entire catalog from the service. Her newest album, 1989 sold 1.2 million copies in the first week.

“If I had streamed the new album, it’s impossible to try to speculate what would have happened. But all I can say is that music is changing so quickly, and the landscape of the music industry itself is changing so quickly, that everything new, like Spotify, all feels to me a bit like a grand experiment,” Swift told Yahoo! Music. “And I’m not wiling to contribute my life’s work to an experiment that I don’t feel fairly compensates the writers, producers, artists and creators of this music. And I just don’t agree with perpetuating the perception that music has no value and should be free.”

According to The Tennessean, Jason’s newest album, Old Boots, New Dirt is expected to be removed from Spotify next week while the rest of his catalog will remain.

In a statement, Spotify explained their goal is to make music accessible, “We believe fans should be able to listen to music wherever and whenever they want, and that artists have an absolute right to be paid for their work and protected from piracy,” the Spotify statement said. “That’s why we pay nearly 70 percent of our revenue back to the music community.”

Only time will tell what other artists will follow in Taylor and Jason’s footsteps.
