Last week, Swift said her former music label, Big Machine Label Group, had denied her request to play some of her early songs at the award show where she is being honored as artist of the decade. The record label later denied her claim.
In a statement released Monday by Big Machine Label Group and Dick Clark Productions, which produces the American Music Awards, both parties clarified that “recording artists do not need label approval for live performances on television or any other live media.” Rather, the statement said, “record label approval is only needed for contracted artists’ audio and visual recordings and in determining how those works are distributed.”
The Big Machine Label Group and Dick Clark Productions said they’d “come to terms on a licensing agreement that approves their artists’ performances to stream post show and for re-broadcast on mutually approved platforms,”
Without mentioning Swift by name, the joint statement added, “This includes the upcoming American Music Awards performances.”
CNN has reached out to representatives for Swift for comment.
The deal was worth roughly $300 million, according Billboard.
Swift had been signed to Big Machine from her 2006 self-titled debut album through 2017’s “Reputation,” before moving to Universal Music Group.
Swift had said her plan was to “perform a medley of my hits throughout the decade on the show,” but claimed Big Machine Label Group founder Scott Borchetta and Braun were attempting to prevent that “because they claim that would be re-recording my music before I’m allowed to next year,” Swift wrote. She also said they were not allowing her to use the music in an in-the-works Netflix documentary.
“When that happens, you will see there is nothing but respect, kindness and support waiting for you on the other side,” the statement read in part. “We share the collective goal of giving your fans the entertainment they both want and deserve.”
The American Music Awards airs Sunday, November 24 at 8:00 pm ET on ABC.
Swift is also set to be honored December 12 at Billboard’s Women in Music Event as woman of the decade.
