6. TREA LANDON
After just four weeks of arriving in Nashville, Trea Landon signed a publishing deal with Play It Again Publishing– thanks to Dallas Davidson’s early warning system. Davidson’s brother, Charles, caught a Trea Landon Band performance just days after the Claxton, Georgia, native arrived in Nashville in Summer 2015. Intrigued, he took Landon’s music to his brother, who immediately recognized the name. Turns out Davidson still has ears on the ground in Statesboro where he attended Georgia Southern University, and had been hearing about Landon and his band for a few years. Landon built a following on the club scene around his home territory before touring the Southeast extensively, then moving to Nashville at age 21.
Landon has built an extensive catalog as a solo songwriter over the last five years and comes to Play It Again with traditional songs with modern lyrical content already proven to be crowd-pleasers. He’s written with and been backed by fellow artists Chris Young, Craig Campbell and Cole Swindell.
“We are extremely excited to welcome Trea to the Play It Again Publishing family. I definitely see a bright future ahead of him. Trea is the total package bringing a great pen, a great voice and a great personality to the table. Doesn’t hurt my feelings either that he hails from the great state of Georgia.” – Dallas Davidson
