BMLG has signed singer-songwriter Tara Thompson to its Valory Music Co. imprint. East Tennessee native Thompson is signed to a joint venture songwriting deal with Big Machine Music and Spoon’s Tunes Publishing.

BMLG President & CEO Scott Borchetta comments, “Tara has all the ingredients I’ve been looking for in a modern traditional country artist. A blood relative to the one and only Loretta Lynn, her tell-all and attitude-filled songwriting and feisty personality are going to crash through the stereotypes and knock down radio stations and beer joints coast to coast. A Tootsie’s World-Famous Orchid Lounge alum, country girls across the USA are on the eve of getting a new hero. Get ready for Tara Thompson.”

Thompson, who performed during a BMLG showcase weekend at Dollywood in late September, officially joins an artist roster that includes Brantley Gilbert, Thomas Rhett, The Mavericks, Eli Young Band, RaeLynn and Levi Hummon.

“I am so grateful to Scott Borchetta for taking a chance on a hillbilly singer from East Tennessee,” adds Tara. “Scott, George Briner, and the Valory/Big Machine staff are the best in the business, and I am thrilled to be a part of such a badass team! This is literally a dream come true!”
