The concept of Asphalt Music Group came to fruition in January 2020 in Nashville, TN as
an independent record label to help artists keep moving forward.
AMG was founded by country music record producer and industry executive, Aaron Chesling, CEO. Chesling pulls from previous stops working as a distribution specialist at Universal Music Group assisting in new physical release marketing campaigns for (3 Doors Down, Bon Jovi and Ludacris), logistics and radio promotions for Big Machine Label Group working closely with the roster (Florida Georgia Line, Maddie & Tae, Thomas Rhett, Steven Tyler and Taylor Swift) contributing to several #1 hits. As of recent, Aaron served as the lead A&R for the late and iconic Joe Diffie. In 2019 and 2020, Aaron was nominated for Nashville Business Journal’s Top 40 Under 40 and has written and produced 100s of songs for independent, international talent as well has songwriting credits to top 200 songs on the Billboard charts.
AMG has equipped itself with the ability to create captivating songs with exceptional artists, pulling from the grass root talents including Nashville’s best musical talent in the studio, songs, marketing and beyond. The label is exploring multiple music atmospheres. In its most infant stage, AMG is aggressively and anxiously delivering new content to new listeners and true fans of music.
