Label signs three artists

Thursday, March 15, 2012 – Bigger Picture Group added Ryan Kinder, Chris Janson and D. Vincent Williams to its artist roster.

"I'm thrilled to announce some of our new artists that will be joining 'the family,'" BPG Chairman/CEO Keith Stegall says. "I'm most proud of the culture that we have provided for these talented individuals to thrive and continue to create."

The label's roster also includes Zac Brown Band , Craig Campbell and Chris Cagle.

Janson signed with BNA Records in 2009 and is currently at work on his debut album, for which he wrote all but one of the songs.

Williams, a Texas native, originally signed with Columbia, but no record ever came out. He penned Hands of a Working Man, a hit for Ty Herndon, and I'm Movin' On, a big hit for Rascal Flatts. He also wrote James Otto's <> Just Got Started Lovin' You. Kenny Rogers, Randy Travis, Reba McEntire, Ronnie Milsap, Jason Aldean, and Lee Ann Womack also recorded his songs.

Kinder, an Alabama native, has been working on an album.

Concert Review: Jinks wins over fans, especially new ones – Cody Jinks asked the crowd a bit into his show how many had never seen him before.
