Country artist Clayton Mullen has signed an exclusive worldwide publishing agreement with Concord Music Publishing that includes his full catalog and all future work.
Originally from the Northeast, Mullen’s interest in writing and performing developed during his time at Texas Christian University (TCU) in Fort Worth, Texas. He then began to grab the attention of local artists including the Josh Abbott Band, Corey Kent, Randall King, Carson Jeffrey and Jacob Stelly.
Mullen debuted his four-track EP South of Forever in June 2022, and followed with his first album release in April 2023 to celebrate his college graduation. The album included fan favorites such as “Like That,” “You Me + Country Song,” “Whiskey On It” and the album’s title track “Where The Time Goes,” amassing millions of streams to date.
His early success has made him one of country music’s newest artists to watch, and his graduation marks the beginning of his full-time dedication to music. Mullen hit the road on his tour earlier this week, which includes shows in Texas, Utah and more, and dropped his latest single “Stirring Memories” today (Sept. 15).
“Within minutes of meeting Clayton, I knew he was a star and that I had to work with him. He has a natural gift and the ‘it’ factor that can’t be taught,” says Courtney Allen, Senior Director of A&R at Concord Music Publishing in Nashville. “Clayton has a deep appreciation for the songwriting community, and he’s grown so much as both a writer and an artist in a short amount of time. I am looking forward to the town getting to know him, and becoming fans of Clayton, like we all are at Concord.”
“I couldn’t deny Courtney’s passion for songs and her belief in me. With her charisma, matched with the backing of Concord, she was someone I wanted on my team,” says Mullen.
