CJ Solar has signed an exclusive publishing deal with Edgehill Music Publishing.
A native of Baton Rouge and a Belmont University graduate, Solar has penned No. 1 hits with Morgan Wallen’s “Up Down” and Jameson Rodgers’ “Some Girls.” “Up Down” earned him awards from ASCAP and the Nashville Songwriters Association International. He also co-wrote Jason Aldean’s “I Don’t Drink Anymore,” Justin Moore’s “Between You & Me,” Jerrod Niemann’s “The Regulars,” and more. He hit No. 1 on the Texas Chart with Mike Ryan’s “Damn Good Goodbye” and Kyle Park’s “What the Heaven.”
As an artist, Solar has released three EPs including the singles “American Girls” and “Airplane” and the Top 10 “Coming My Way.” He received the MusicRow Independent Artist of the Year Award in 2019, and tours coast-to-coast headlining his own dates and opening for artists including Lynyrd Skynyrd, 38 Special, Gary Allan, Chris Janson, Hank Jr, Aaron Watson, and others.
“We’ve been keeping an eye on CJ just waiting for the day he became a free agent,” says Edgehill co-founder Josh Joseph. “He’s an amazing talent, and we are honored to have him as the flagship writer at Edgehill Music Publishing.”
“Edgehill is an amazing company with people who thrive on creativity and connection,” Solar shares. “It’s the perfect place for me both as a songwriter and an artist, and I can’t wait to see what the coming years bring.”
