PLATINUM recording artist RaeLynn has inked a worldwide recording deal with Round Here Records – the newly-formed label created by trailblazing Florida Georgia Line superstars Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard – and AWAL,
Kobalt’s recording company, as announced today. The AWAL partnership
offers RaeLynn a full range of services including marketing, campaign
coordination, A&R, radio, and global distribution.

AWAL North American President, Ron Cerrito said of the deal, “RaeLynn
embodies all of the attributes we look for in an artist. By consistently
building a strong fanbase and maintaining a clear vision of who she is
as an artist, she has joined a new class of country artists. The AWAL,
Round Here Records and RaeLynn partnership allows them to tap into our
team’s expertise ranging from product management and radio promotion to
digital and creative marketing. Sarah DeMarco and Kyle Avenarius have
been on the front lines with the Round Here Records team, and we are
proud to be part of launching the next chapter in RaeLynn’s career as an
independent artist.”

“Signing to Round Here Records was an easy decision and I knew in my
heart this was the right home for my music,” says RaeLynn. “I’ve known
Tyler and BK for many years, and have always admired their electricity
together as a team and as strong businessmen. They bring such incredible
experience and knowledge of this business. To have artists like them –
who are innovative and slaying the game at the helm of the label – adds
something so unique and powerful. And alongside the AWAL team, this new
platform gives me the support, and also the freedom, to build my brand
in a unique way that we all envision. Can’t wait for this new chapter to

And, it’s all happening today as RaeLynn releases brand-new song “Bra Off,”
in celebration of her new label home. “Breaking up with you was like
taking my bra off,” she sings, “feeling free and loose like this T-shirt
I got on,” before hilariously comparing casting off an ex to shedding a
“pink, lacy, suffocating” bra. RaeLynn knew while writing the song with
Josh Kerr and Emily Weisband that it was special. “This is what girls
want to hear,” she says. “As a girl, this is what I want to
hear. I grew up in a small town of Baytown, Texas. And I’ve always said,
‘If it ain’t Baytown, I don’t want to cut it.’ It has to have that
Baytown flavor. I grew up a church kid, but I like to cuss, too. And I
want all those flavors in the music because that is me, and it’s my
fans, too.” Working alongside producer Corey Crowder, her forthcoming EP
brims with personality and humor, and is expected for release early

“Working with Round Here Records has brought an inspiring energy,”
shares Big Enterprises President/Manager, Kerry Hansen. “Tyler and Brian
are not afraid to take risks or break the mold, as they’ve done in
their own careers, to help artists succeed. Their belief in RaeLynn and
unique perspective on our industry truly propelled the launch of this
brand new chapter and we’re excited to release music. Sharing our same
vision, AWAL was the perfect global partner and we couldn’t be happier
to have them on board team RaeLynn.”
