Shane Profitt has signed with Big Machine Label Group Records in partnership with Chris Janson’s Harpeth 60 Records.
The 22-year-old singer-songwriter from Columbia, Tennessee was surrounded by music from an early age. When his grandfather gifted him a guitar and taught him a few chords, he began learning songs from Hank Williams to Merle Haggard. After receiving positive feedback from cover videos on social media, Profitt gained the confidence to tell his own stories through music.
“When Shane showed up, it was one of those moments of ‘where the heck has this guy been hiding?’” says Big Machine Label Group Chairman & CEO Scott Borchetta. “It’s all there… great songs, great singer, great guy and country as it gets. Country fans–you don’t know it yet but let me introduce you to your next favorite artist.”
Signing his first publishing deal earlier this year with Janson’s Old Tom Music Publishing, Profitt has been writing songs for his debut project while also landing cuts by Janson and other artists. He recently spent time touring on Janson’s “Halfway To Crazy Tour.”
“I am so proud of Shane Profitt,” shares Janson. “He is the real deal. A great songwriter, artist and vocalist, and a big time star. I’m grateful to Scott Borchetta for partnering with me and couldn’t be more humbled and excited. Shane is the first artist signed to my Harpeth 60 Records imprint with BMLG.”
BMLG Records President & CEO Jimmy Harnen adds, “We cannot wait to introduce Shane and his music to the world! His first album is an absolute spectacular collection of songs that embody everything that country music is.”
“There are no words to describe how excited I am to work with BMLG Records and Harpeth 60 Records,” notes Profitt. “Thank you to everyone who has believed in me and made this dream come true. I can’t wait to get my music out to the world.”
