Walker Signs Label Deal With Newly Formed Monument Records

 

Walker has been signed to a label deal with Monument Records, a new venture in collaboration with Sony Music. Spearheaded by Producer/songwriter Shane McAnally and artist manager Jason Owen, the label takes the name of Fred Foster’s former label, which represented Kris Kristofferson, Dolly Parton and several Willie Nelson recordings early on in his career.

 

“We are looking for very specific artists,” says co-president to Hits Daily Double, “ones who are genreless and are superstars, ones who connect, aren’t fluff and aren’t forgettable. That’s the stuff we’re going to sign: something where everyone goes, ‘We love this, but don’t know what to do with this…’ We do.”

Walker Included In Pandora’s Country Artists to Watch

Walker has been included in Pandora’s Country Artists to Watch, among an impressive list of artists gearing up to have a huge 2017.

 

“If anything can be said of Walker Hayes, it’s that, thankfully, he doesn’t quit. Early in his Nashville career, Hayes’ voice caught the attention of a major label, but the deal ultimately didn’t work out. After pounding the pavement for a few years, the Mobile, Alabama native has found his niche with timely, spoken word lyrics and visionary instrumentation on his two 8 Tracks Eps. Standout tracks include “Halloween” and “Mind Candy,” and we we’re looking forward to more.
