Riser House Entertainment has announced the label and publishing signing of country performer Dillon Carmichael. Carmichael is currently in the studio cutting his debut record with highly sought after producer, Dave Cobb.

Carmichael—from Burgin, Kentucky—is the nephew of Eddie Montgomery and John Michael Montgomery. At the age of seventeen, Carmichael was signed by Jennifer Johnson, then with Song Factory Music.

“I knew from the first moment I heard him sing that I had to work with him. I’ve been his champion since the beginning, and here we are seven years later and I believe in him more than ever,” says Jennifer Johnson, now President of Riser House Entertainment. “Kristen Ashley, VP of Creative, has also been rooting for Carmichael from the early Song Factory days and has been an instrumental part in his signing to Riser House.”

Over the past seven years, Carmichael has toured the Southeast, opening for the likes of his musician uncles, Big & Rich, Aaron Lewis and Chris Young. Carmichael is managed by Hallmark Direction Company’s John Dorris.

Riser House Entertainment is also home to recording artist Mitchell Tenpenny in addition to a publishing roster including Michael Whitworth, Dallas Wilson, and Rob Crosby.

Riser House’s Chairman Of The Board Matt Swanson said, “Authentic country fans better hang on to their cowboy hats!”
