THE VALORY MUSIC CO. has announced the signing of BRANTLEY GILBERT to their label roster. GILBERT is from JEFFERSON COUNTY, GA and is currently selling out 2,000-plus capacity venues throughout the MIDWEST and SOUTHEAST. He is also a songwriter and most recently penned BROKEN BOW RECORDS’ artist JASON ALDEAN’s “My Kinda Party.”
“It's so rare when an artist is able to truly build a substantial rabid fan base without any mainstream media but BRANTLEY has done just that,” said SCOTT BORCHETTA, President/CEO of the BIG MACHINE LABEL GROUP. “His live shows are a movement and his songwriting is nothing short of game-changing. Look no further than newly minted superstar JASON ALDEAN as JASON has covered multiple BRANTLEY-penned songs including the anthemic #1 single ‘My Kind Of Party.’ ”
“Words can't express how excited everyone in my organization is to become part of the VALORY MUSIC CO. family. SCOTT BORCHETTA and his team have the most reputable work ethic in the business. We will finally get to experience what it is we've prayed for, dreamed about and worked for for so long,” said GILBERT. “I sincerely feel like countless prayers are being answered, and countless blessings are in store. I take great pride in the fact that the people who have stuck with me through thick and thin---my brothers and my TRUE friends---are here with me now as we embark on this journey. We've got the muscle, we've got the BIG MACHINE, and we're all on a mission. It’s goin' down baby!”
GILBERT’s first single will impact Country radio in APRIL 2011 with his first THE VALORY MUSIC CO. album to be released later this year. In addition, GILBERT will headline the second stage of WILLIE NELSON’s COUNTRY THROWDOWN tour this summer.
