The BBR Music Group is proud to announce the signing of GRAMMY Award-winning recording artist Kristian Bush to a multifaceted publishing, production and label deal. One of country music’s most decorated and celebrated creators, Bush is already in the studio working on the follow-up to his critically-acclaimed debut solo album, SOUTHERN GRAVITY, to be released via BBR imprint Wheelhouse Records. He also continues his work as a BMI Award-winning songwriter, joining the roster at Magic Mustang Music.
“As both a recording artist and a songwriter, I am honored to be a part of the BBR Music Group/Magic Mustang family. I’m in love with making music, and I’m humbled every day that I get to do this job,” shares Bush. “My train runs on believers, and I found some incredible supporters in this building. There’s no telling what can happen when like-minded people get together, so to be surrounded by this team and given this opportunity makes me feel like a rocket sitting on a launchpad. I can’t wait to take off.”
Bush made an impressive solo debut with the 2015 release of SOUTHERN GRAVITY. The album hit the Top 10 of Rolling Stone Country’s Best of 2015 list and won international raves for its feel-good commercial country sound. Its first single, the irresistible “Trailer Hitch,” reached the Top 20 — making Bush only the fifth artist in the past three decades to hit that mark after first finding success as part of a duo. Bush, who produced the album alongside longtime engineer Tom Tapley, also co-wrote all 12 tracks, including buzzy sophomore single “Light Me Up.” The new partnership with BBR/Wheelhouse reunites Bush with VP of Promotion Teddi Bonadies, who spearheaded his solo radio success thus far, and launches the newest chapter in Bush’s storied career as a once-in-a generation talent who never gives up.
“The world knows that Kristian Bush is an amazing songwriter BUT what many folks may not yet know is that he’s also a multi-talented producer. When we heard his demos we decided to sign him to a full-fledged publishing, production and artist deal. It just made sense. We’re so excited to welcome Kristian, his talent and his incredible spirit to both the Magic Mustang and BBR Music Group family,” says Benny Brown, President & CEO of BBR Music Group.
Fans can catch Bush at a number of A-list festivals through the summer, including Country 500, Stagecoach and Tortuga Music Festival.
