Sony Music Nashville has signed Robert Counts to its roster.
Counts grew up in Franklin, Tennessee and picked up guitar as a teenager. While attending college at Lee University, he developed his performance and songwriting skills. He also won a multi-week songwriting contest, which spurred him to pursue music as a career.
“I just can’t believe that my music has caught the attention of a major industry powerhouse like Sony Music Nashville,” said Counts. “This label has been home to many of my own artistic influences and musical heroes over the years and I am honored and humbled today to be adding my name to this roster. I’m looking forward to big things with this team and this partnership!”
Counts’ first two releases “Backseat Driver” and “Someone in My Someday” are available now at all streaming platforms and digital retailers. He has writing credits on both tracks, co-penning “Backseat Driver” with Nicolette Hayford and Matt Willis, while Daniel Ross and Laura Veltz were co-writers on the latter. Dann Huff and Jimmy Ritchey served as co-producers.
Counts is signed to Sony/ATV Music Publishing, affiliated with ASCAP, and is booked via WME.
