Double Down Music, a recently launched publishing division of PIA Music Group, has added multi-award-winning songwriter and artist Lee Brice to its roster.
The Curb Records artist has amassed over 2.8 billion on-demand streams, and over 3.6 billion spins on Pandora. He recently reached No. 1 at country radio with “One of Them Girls,” following his No. 1 with Carly Pearce on “I Hope You’re Happy Now,” and his No. 1 single, “Rumor,” which was nominated for Single of The Year at the 55th Annual ACM Awards. Brice also took home the prize for Single of the Year and Musical Event of the Year at the 56th Annual CMA Awards for his duet with Pearce.
“In addition to his outstanding recording career, Lee Brice is one of the most prolific songwriters in music!” says Ryan Dokke, CEO, PIA Music Group. “The visual nature of his writing and what he can bring to life with a lyric and a melody put him among the best artist-writers in our business. Personally, it is a thrill to once again be able to work with Lee in a different way this time. His ideas and energy are infectious! He brings so much to the PIA Music Group/Double Down family.”
The new signing reunites Brice with Dokke, who served as head of radio promotion for Curb Records prior to being named Sr. VP/General Manager of Curb|Word Entertainment in 2018.
“Lee Brice is a massive hit-songwriter!” says Dallas Davidson, PIA Music Group founder. “After the creative success we have had together, we now have an opportunity to work together in a bigger way and put a giant spotlight on Lee Brice, the songwriter! And it’s always special when you get to work with one of your closest friends.”
