Country artist Cooper Alan and hit songwriter/industry member Victoria Shaw have partnered to form Cooped Up Records. Based in Nashville, Alan is also the first signee to the new independent label.
Alan, born and bred in North Carolina, spent 4 years at UNC Chapel Hill where he and his friends soon became the go to band for great music and high energy, all-night performances. After graduation, Alan moved to Music City where he had the luck of meeting Shaw, hit songwriter and producer with credits for Garth Brooks, Ricky Martin, and Lady A to name few, who quickly signed him to a publishing deal.
At the beginning of quarantine, Alan decided to introduce his music to social media’s country music lovers, who like him, were “cooped up” at home. 14 months later, he has amassed over 3.4 million TikTok followers, over 250k Instagram followers, three No. 1 singles on the iTunes Country/all genre charts, and over 35 million digital streams, along with charting on the Billboard Country streaming charts. Alan’s singles include “Climate Change,” “15 to 12,” and his newest release “Colt 45 Country Remix” featuring Rvshvd, which is available now on all digital platforms.
“Cooped Up Records couldn’t be more excited to have Cooper Alan as our first signing,” says Shaw, Co-CEO of Cooped Up Records.
Alan, the other Co-CEO of Cooped Up Records jokingly adds, “Signing him was a no brainer.”
Alan kicks off the In Real Life Tour in Memphis, Tennessee on July 7. He will perform alongside fellow TikTok artist Alexandra Kay. Five of the nine shows will also feature up-and-coming special guest Thomas Mac. Dates are below and tickets are available here.
