Sony/ATV Music Publishing  signed their newest artist, Chase Rice.

“Chase is a double threat as both a songwriter and an artist,” said Jacob Fain, Director of A&R for Sony/ATV.  “It’s always a privilege when you get to work with someone who is accomplished in both regards and we couldn’t be more excited about it.”

 “It’s a huge step for me to sign with such a great publisher. Following the footsteps of Luke Bryan, Eric Church, Miranda Lambert and Kenny Chesney just gives me more motivation to make sure I’m up there with those names soon, and Sony/ATV is the place to do it,” said Rice.
