Cledus T. Judd has added new representation in management, booking and publishing coming into the new year. He has signed with Charles Dorris‘ DR Artist Management, Wasserman Music for booking, and Jay DeMarcus‘ Red Street Publishing.
Judd burst on the scene in the late ‘90s with a series of parodies of the biggest names in country. He translated his comedy success to radio, selling over two million records and scoring numerous accolades and video hits in the process. He starred on CMT’s Most Wanted Live for two years, co-hosted USA’s Nashville Star with Leann Rimes, and starred on VH1’s hit reality show Celebrity Fit Club. He has toured with Brooks & Dunn, Rascal Flatts, Toby Keith and others, and had songs cut by Montgomery Gentry, Rascal Flatts, Brantley Gilbert and more.
“I have been friends with Cledus for many years and I’m super excited to call him an official [Red Street Publishing] writer! For every funny parody Cledus has written there are some of the most insightful, deep, honest lyrics I’ve ever heard,” shares DeMarcus. “I’m excited to be a part of this next chapter in his songwriting career.”
“With a name that is known literally to millions because of a talent that is truly unique, it was an easy decision to sign Cledus for management,” adds Dorris, partner of DR Artist Management. “There is an exciting ‘organic resurgence’ occurring that we are helping to bolster. We are seeing his original fans and their children, now grown, gravitate to a ‘trusted friend’ in Cledus for entertainment.”
“I grew up watching ‘T’ on CMT over my morning pre-bus stop bowl of Frosted Flakes, so to welcome him to our roster brings it very much full circle,” comments Nate Ritches, VP/Agent, Wasserman Music. “We are excited to see what is next for Cledus’ career, as his catalog resurges with an entirely new audience.”
Judd will release his new comedy song and companion video, “Old Man Rap,” in the coming weeks, and will be going on the road this year on his “This Judd’s 4 U” tour.
