Wheelhouse Records/BMG’s Elvie Shane has signed a publishing deal with Rome Phrey Publishing and Warner Chappell Music Nashville.
A Kentucky native, Shane’s debut single, “My Boy,” a heartfelt song penned about his stepson, is currently No. 1 on the Billboard Country Airplay and Country Aircheck charts. His debut full length album, Backslider, is set for release Oct. 29. Shane most recently supported Brooks & Dunn on their “Reboot 2021 Tour,” and has previously opened for Jason Aldean, Miranda Lambert and more.
“When you meet Elvie you understand that he has a voice, a point of view, and he can write songs that make you feel something,” says Ben Vaughn, President & CEO, WCM Nashville. “He’s carving his own path, and his honest and powerful storytelling is really resonating with fans. We’re grateful to be working with R.J. [Romeo] and Lisa [Johnson] to support this talented songwriter.”
Romeo, Co-Owner, Rome Phrey Publishing, adds, “I’m grateful for the opportunity to work with Ben, Will [Overton], and the entire WCM team. Elvie is an amazingly talented singer/songwriter who has only just begun to tell his story. By partnering with a team that shares our enthusiasm and passion for Elvie’s talents I’m confident that Elvie will continue to write meaningful music that will speak to his fans and touch millions of people all over the world.”
“Songwriting is at the core of everything I do as an artist,” shares Shane. “I come from a place full of hard working blue collar Americans. I’m so proud to join a team of fellow storytellers that care about those folks as much as I do. I love songwriters and this crew is a passionate one. So excited to see what this new creative team adds to my music.”
