Row wrap: ShowDog renews Universal JV, Pickler lands at new label

Two quick hits from the music biz: First, the record label founded by Toby Keith three years ago has extended its joint venture with Universal Records South. Show Dog-Universal will continue to be run by Mark Wright. And secondly, former American Idol contestant Kellie Picker has founded a new label home at Black River Entertainment after spending six years at 19/BNA Records. Black River CEO Gordon Kerr says Pickler is "rooted in and committed to country music and she's genuine. How can you ask for more than that?"
