Profitt signs with Janson's label, BMLG

Thursday, June 2, 2022 – Shane Profitt, a 22-year-old Tennessee native, signed with BMLG Records in partnership with Chris Janson's Harpeth 60 Records.

Surrounded by music from an early age, Profitt's family would often play music together. It wasn't until his grandfather gifted him a guitar and taught him a few chords, that he began learning every song he could from Hank Williams to Merle Haggard. Profitt posted cover videos on social media.

"There are no words to describe how excited I am to work with BMLG Records and Harpeth 60 Records," said Profitt. "Thank you to everyone who has believed in me and made this dream come true. I can't wait to get my music out to the world."

There was no word on when Profitt would release music. He posted one song, "Gone Before Good," on Spotify.

Signing his first publishing deal earlier this year with Janson's Old Tom Music Publishing, Profitt has been writing songs for his debut project while also landing cuts by Janson and other artists. He recently spent time touring on Janson's Halfway to Crazy Tour, including at the Ryman.

"I am so proud of Shane Profitt," said Janson. "He is the real deal. A great songwriter, artist and vocalist, and a big time star. I'm grateful to Scott Borchetta for partnering with me and couldn't be more humbled and excited. Shane is the first artist signed to my Harpeth 60 Records imprint with BMLG."

"When Shane showed up, it was one of those moments of 'where the heck has this guy been hiding?'," said Big Machine Label Group Chairman and CEO Scott Borchetta. "It's all there. Great songs, great singer, great guy and country as it gets. Country fans – you don't know it yet but let me introduce you to your next favorite artist."

BMLG Records President & CEO Jimmy Harnen said, "we cannot wait to introduce Shane and his music to the world! His first album is an absolute spectacular collection of songs that embody everything that Country music is."
