(NASHVILLE, TN) – BBR Music Group is pleased to announce the signing of rising country duo Walker McGuire to its Wheelhouse Records imprint.
Comprised of singer/songwriter team Jordan Walker and Johnny McGuire, Walker McGuire is earning early acclaim for its single “’Til Tomorrow” which has garnered over SEVEN MILLION streams on Spotify in only five months since it’s debut.
“Walker McGuire’s songwriting skills, stage presence and unique vocal blend impressed me the first time I heard the duo live. Most importantly, Walker McGuire is relatable to country music fans and we’re proud to welcome Jordan and Johnny to Wheelhouse Records and the BBR Music Group family,” said BBR Music Group CEO/ Founder Benny Brown.
“We’ve both been dreaming of doing this since we were kids and we are extremely grateful to Benny and the BBR Music Group team for believing in us and giving us this opportunity,” said Walker McGuire in a joint statement.
Hailing from Vernon, TX (Jordan) and Fairway, KS (Johnny), Walker McGuire’s story is truly “So Nashville.” Jordan and Johnny met in April 2012 when they performed on the same open mic night at popular joint The Commodore near Music Row. Jordan had been in town six weeks while Johnny had moved to Nashville only four days earlier. The two began collaborating soon after and Walker McGuire was born.
With influences ranging from Southern Rock to Classic Country to 90s Pop, the ‘Heartland, USA’ duo’s harmonies embody the fabric of America with a sound described as “Keith Whitley meets Tom Petty meets Matchbox 20.” Walker McGuire has shared the stage with some of music’s hottest stars including Brooks & Dunn, Sam Hunt, Kid Rock, Tim McGraw and Granger Smith while maintaining a grueling tour schedule of 200 shows in the past year.
Produced by GRAMMY nominated, multi-platinum selling producer Mickey Jack Cones, “’Til Tomorrow” has been named one of Whiskey Riff’s “10 Best Country Songs of September 2016” and earned a slot on Spotify’s coveted “Hot Country” playlist.
