Warner signs Bexar

Sunday, July 26, 2020 – Warner Music Nashville signed country band BEXAR, whose major-label debut single "Again" came out on Friday.

Pronounced "bear," the group gets its name from Bexar County, Texas, where lead vocalist/guitarist Chris Ryan spent a good part of his childhood. He's joined by Kentucky native and vocal/banjo/guitar master Logan Turner, having first met in one of Nashville's anonymous writing rooms during CMA Fest. They bonded over a love of bands like Mumford & Sons and The Avett Brothers.

"When two worlds collide like this, you can start creating something special," Ryan said. "I want people to feel about our music the way I felt about music when I first fell in love with it," said Turner. "That it takes you somewhere - a place that nothing else in the world can take you to."

The first new music released from their time spent in the studio with producer Ross Copperman (Keith Urban, Brett Eldredge, Dierks Bentley) was "Again."

"It's about being unapologetically you," Ryan said. "At the end of the day, there's always things that you wish you could go back and do differently," Turner said. "but even with mistakes, you learn from them and move forward."

The duo self-released an eponymous debut EP in 2018.
