Black River Entertainment has signed its first duo to the label roster, Pryor & Lee. The country duo includes former The Voice contestants Kaleb Lee and Pryor Baird, who each finished in the Top 6 on the show.

After meeting while competing (and initially collaborating) on The Voice, each pursued solo careers, with Pryor touring in support of his 2019 EP All Over Me, while Lee released the track “I Dream in Southern,” penned by Shane McAnally, Josh Osborne and Brandy Clark. Lee returned to The Voice last year to perform the track with Kelly Clarkson.

Black River Entertainment CEO Gordon Kerr said of the signing, “Even though this seems very quick, it really is not. We’ve talked about wanting a duo for a long time, we just didn’t know it was you, and now we do.”

While signing their contract, Pryor expressed his enthusiasm for the next chapter. “This is literally a dream come true…I got a guitar when I was two and a half, and I’ve dreamt of this day my whole life,” Pryor said.

Lee added, “I couldn’t be more pumped for this new project and the team behind it! I immediately knew it was something special when Pryor and I recorded music together in late 2019 but having Black River get excited just solidified my feelings.”

Pryor & Lee will hit the road for the “Country’s Back” tour beginning March 1 in Fontana, California.
