The two-time GRAMMY® Awards nominee officially joins BMM’s wildly talented roster, which includes Brett Young, Luke Combs, Brandy Clark, Jonathan Singleton, Laura Veltz, Josh Thompson, Jessie Jo Dillon, and more.
“I first met Eric more than a dozen years ago and even back then, the depth, warmth and commerciality of his songs made him special,” commented BMM General Manager Mike Molinar. “Now, with five No.1’s and GRAMMY nominations under his belt, Eric’s hit sense and ability to move people with his music has only grown. We are excited and honored that he has chosen Big Machine Music as his partner for this next chapter of his career.”
“The Big Machine Music team is tireless, hard-working and fierce when it comes to the songs they love,” shared Eric. “Mike, Alex, Michelle, Lizzy and their whole roster of writers are bada$$es. I’m excited to be joining them.”
Eric is currently working on new music and is making plans to tour Europe this year.
