Provident Distribution celebrates the longstanding partnership with Cedarmont Kids as they re-sign their distribution deal. Selling more than 22 million units, Cedarmont has scanned more units than any other Christian artist and has four titles, Bible Songs, Sunday School Songs, Action Bible Songs, and Toddler Tunes, that have been on the Soundscan charts for over 1,000 consecutive weeks.
“Cedarmont’s mission is to provide families with quality Christian music for their children,” states Mike Gay, Cedarmont Kids co-founder. “One of our early slogans was,‘The Best Songs Never Go Out of Style’ and the longevity of these products proves that to be true. As we add to our line of children’s products, we’re committed to continuing this ‘Music With a Message They Can’t Outgrow!’ The Provident family has a proven record of supporting us in that goal.”
