Big Deal Music Group and SABCO Music have signed Jobe Fortner to a worldwide publishing deal. Fortner is managed by Chris Kappy and Jarrod Holley at Make Wake Artists and booked by Justin Cahill at CAA.

“We’re thrilled to add SABCO/Big Deal to the Jobe team. Both companies truly value the crucial process of developing an artist the right way and are experts at what they do,” said Make Wake Artists’ Chris Kappy.

“As soon as we introduced Jobe to Randy & Pete everyone in the room felt the synergy. We couldn’t be more excited to partner with Big Deal Music & SABCO,” said Make Wake Artists’ Jarrod Holley.

“Jobe has a brilliantly distinctive voice that sets him apart. Randy Sabiston (SABCO Music) and I both agree that Jobe is a superb songwriter and a genuinely great guy matched only by his artistry,” said Pete Robinson, GM of Big Deal Music Group.

Hailing from Dahlonega, Georgia, Fortner was the opening act for Luke Combs the majority of 2016 before he decided to make the move to Nashville. In 2018 he released his self-titled EP, which has amassed two million streams and resulted in 2019 tour dates with Cody Johnson, Whiskey Myers, and Muscadine Bloodline.
