Duo Inks Deal Joined Alongside Capacity CRS Crowd In What Could Be Largest Artist Label Signing Ever
Nashville, Tenn. (February 7, 2018) – Monday night (2/5), in front of a packed house at BBR Music Group/BMG’s annual CRS party, the label group proudly added new duo Everette to its roster of artists. In a declaration of support and wholehearted enthusiasm, BBR Music Group invited label staff, radio, industry partners and family to take part in the duo’s career landmark, in what may be the largest artist record deal signing ever. Everette’s Brent Rupard and Anthony Olympia signed with imprint Broken Bow Records, joining superstar talent Jason Aldean, Dustin Lynch and Chase Rice.
“The first time I saw Everette perform I knew I had to work with them,” says Sara Knabe, VP/A&R, BBR Music Group. “Their music made me smile, it made me want to share it with my friends and family, and it made me want to drink beer. Brent and Anthony have created a soundtrack for every day and everyone, and I am excited BBR Music Group gets to share it with the world!”
The duo will soon begin to introduce its brand of Country music filled with swampy harmonicas and bluesy guitar licks (co-produced by the band and mostly self-written) to Country radio and fans from coast to coast.
Everette is managed by Brad Belanger at Homestead / Red Light Management in Nashville, TN.
