Universal Music Publishing Group (UMPG) Nashville has signed an exclusive, global publishing deal with artist and songwriter Kane Brown. The announcement was made today (May 4) by Kent Earls, Executive Vice President/General Manager, UMPG Nashville.
“Kane Brown’s charismatic voice matched with his magnetic look screams superstar and the level at which he connects with his fans is revolutionary in our format,” said Earls. “We are honored to be the home of Kane’s songs for years to come.”
“I’m so excited to be part of the Universal Music Publishing team,” added Brown. “I’ve been collaborating with their incredible writers and we have been writing some amazing songs. I can’t wait for the fans to hear what’s coming next.”
Shortly after signing to RCA Nashville in January 2016, Brown released his debut single “Used To Love You Sober” to country radio. His EP Chapter 1 (RCA/Zone 4) was released in March and debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard Country Albums chart and No.9 on The Billboard 200. Brown is currently working on his debut full-length album, which is set to be released later this summer.
Brown got his start in music by developing a dedicated fan base through posting original and cover songs to his own social media channels. After independently releasing “Used To Love You Sober” to digital retailers, the song went viral.
Brown is currently headlining his first tour with over 40 sold out shows, and he will join Florida Georgia Line on their Dig Your Roots Tour this summer.
