Sony Music Nashville has signed Ross Ellis to the label’s artist roster.

The Louisiana native began performing in a homespun band called Wayside while Ellis was still in high school. He moved to Nashville after graduating from the University of Louisiana at Monroe. In 2017, he independently released the song “Home For The Weekend,” followed by “Ghosts” in 2018. He is also a co-writer on “Neon Church,” which Tim McGraw released to radio in 2018. Ellis recently released “Buy and Buy,” which reached No. 1 on SiriusXM’s The Highway’s Top 30 Countdown last month.

“I’m so excited to join the Sony Music family! When I moved to this town five years ago, I was broke, had written maybe five songs and didn’t know a soul on music row,” Ellis said. “Now with an army of personal and professional support behind me and most importantly, God, I’m ready for what comes next on this crazy journey. And yes, that includes new music very, very soon!”

Ellis is a BMI affiliate, signed with Big Deal Music for publishing, and booked by WME.
