CNN Entertainment Supervising Producer
You heard Joe Jackson shill for his new record label “Ranch Records” twice at the BET awards and once at a family presser in Encino. Well the name is already taken.
I talked to Dixon Shanks on the phone, he confirms HE owns Ranch Records and says it has been his company since 2001. The label has about 8 artists and is based in Lufkin, Texas.
Shanks has not received any calls from the Jackson family or their representatives (as of this writing) asking him if he’d be willing to sell the name.
