Terry and Kim Pegula own the Buffalo Sabres, the Buffalo Bills, The Buffalo Bandits, the Buffalo Beauts and Rochester Americans, but did you know that the Pegula's owned a record label before all of the sports teams?

They still own it, too -- called Black River Entertainment and the CEO of the record label is Gordon, Kim's brother.

There are tons of independent labels in Nashville, but Black River has been one of the successful ones with artists that have topped the charts, especially Kelsea Ballerini--their latest sensation.
