Nashville-based trio Fairground Saints – Elijah Edwards, Meg McAllister, and Mason Van Valin – have signed a global development partnership with Sony Music Nashville and Sony-owned distribution and label services arm The Orchard. The band is set to release their new single “Somewhere Down The Line” next Friday (10/26).

“Fairground Saints have created something unique in country music, a sound that reflects their West Coast leanings that is harmony-driven, adventurous, and carefree with intricate vocals, thoughtful songwriting, and solid musicianship,” said Randy Goodman, Chairman and CEO of Sony Music Nashville. “With The Orchard partnership, we are in a great position to focus our individual resources on identifying and cultivating opportunities to advance the band and their growing fan base on a bigger scale. And with ‘Somewhere Down The Line,’ we are off to a very good start.”

“The Orchard is excited to work with the talented Fairground Saints and Sony Music Nashville to make this project happen,” Brad Navin, CEO The Orchard said. “We look forward to helping them develop and find opportunities within our global network.”

“The three of us are thrilled to finally share our new music with the world!” said the band. “We are so incredibly grateful for the supportive, smart, collaborative, and creative team behind us with both Sony Music Nashville and The Orchard working together on our behalf.”

The Saints will be premiering a new video for “Somewhere Down The Line” soon, and are working on new music for release in 2019 as part of this innovative strategic alliance.
