Sony Music Nashville and Villa 40 have signed Drew Green to a label deal, as part of a long-term joint venture between Sony Music Nashville and the Villa 40 imprint, which was co-founded by industry execs Joe Fisher and Brad Margolis.

“I couldn’t have asked for a better team,” Green says of Villa 40/Sony Music Nashville. “It’s been a long journey, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. Over my five years songwriting, I realized it’s all about hard work, and I’m so excited to be surrounded by a group that believes that and believes in me.”

Green, a McMinnville, Tennessee native, earned a slot as the singer for Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge’s house band. He also continued writing songs and inked a publishing deal in 2018 with Brett James’ Cornman Music, a co-venture with Warner Chappell Music Nashville. James is also Green’s manager.

In 2019, Florida Georgia Line cut “Colorado,” which Green co-wrote with Hunter Phelps and Michael Hardy (HARDY), for their album Can’t Say I Ain’t Country. On June 11, Green will release his own debut track, “Little More Be Alright,” at all streaming platforms and digital retailers.
