Brown signs new deal

Wednesday, January 9, 2019 – Country traditionalist Marty Brown will be back with a new disc this year.

Brown announced on Wednesday that he signed with Plowboy Records with a single dropping in February.

Brown, 53, has released four albums. He put out on MCA Records 1991's "High and Dry," 1993's "Wild Kentucky Skies" and 1994's "Cryin', Lovin', Leavin'." He received critical acclaim, but only had one single make the charts, "It Must Be the Rain," which hit 74.

He released another album, "Here's to the Honky Tonks" in 1996 on the now defunct HighTone Records label.

Brown, a Kentucky native, was a contestant on season eight of America's Got Talent and reached the semi-final rounds. He later signed with Dreamlined Entertainment and released a single in 2016.
