not only helped Swift garner 1.2 million album sales in the first week, but cemented her as the only solo female artist to succeed across multiple genres, and with three albums debuting with sales over one million copies.

In addition to Swift, Borchetta has developed and signed more than 30 music acts, including Tim McGraw, Rascal Flatts, Reba, The Band Perry and Florida Georgia Line. Borchetta is responsible for helping various artists achieve more than 400 million album sales and sending more than 155 songs to No.1 through his career. He has a unique ability to cultivate talent and propel them to worldwide success.

Borchetta's Big Machine Label Group is the No. 1 independent record label in the world, based on sales and radio airplay. Under his leadership, BMLG artists have won multiple Grammy Awards, American Music Awards, Country Music Association Awards and Academy of Country Music Awards. Borchetta freely pushes standard record label boundaries, preferring to view his label as a content company, and has moved the group beyond music, toward complete cultural saturation.

A native Californian and accomplished musician, Borchetta's love for music began in early childhood when he developed an appreciation for the art by listening to as many styles of music as possible. That diverse influence afforded him the opportunity of playing a wide variety of instruments in various bands before moving to Nashville in 1981 and devoting himself full time to the industry side of the music business. After quickly climbing the corporate ladder, Borchetta became one of the top radio promotion go-to-guys over the last decade and now he sits at the helm of Big Machine Records and Valory Music Co.
