Along with Campbell, who scored hits with the songs "Family Man," "Fish" and current single "Keep Them Kisses Comin'," Bigger Picture counted rock-leaning group Blackjack Billy and country chanteuse Rachel Bradshaw (daughter of NFL Hall of Famer Terry Bradshaw) among its artists. Rebel rocker Chris Janson asked out of his contract earlier in the year. 

Pretty Little Liars actress Lucy Hale was set to release her debut country album in a joint venture between Bigger Picture and Disney Music Group Nashville. According to Nashville industry magazine Music Row, that deal now pairs DMG Nashville with in2une Music in promoting Hale's album, due June 3rd.

“Love Is the Answer”

Utopia | 1977

The message of the Beatles' "All You Need Is Love" proved to be a universal and long-lasting one, which Utopia revisited 10 years later on this ballad. "From a lyrical standpoint, it's part of a whole class of songs that I write, which are about filial love," Todd Rundgren explained. "I'm not a Christian, but it's called Christian love, the love that people are supposed to naturally feel because we are all of the same species. That may be mythical, but it's still a subject." Though "Love Is the Answer" wasn't a hit, a cover version two years later by England Dan & John Ford Coley peaked at Number Ten on the Billboard singles chart.
