    About Brandon Lay:

    EMI Records Nashville’s Brandon Lay grew up in Jackson, Tenn. – in between the blues, soul and rock-and-roll of Memphis and the country music capital of the world in Nashville. Influences from both legendary music cities can be found throughout Brandon’s work including his recently released debut single, “Speakers, Bleachers and Preachers.” Co-written by Brandon with Luke Laird and Shane McAnally, “Speakers, Bleachers and Preachers” is autobiographical and walks listeners through the three biggest influences in his life – music, sports and faith.  The tune sparked an immediate reaction with listeners and quickly impacted the Spotify U.S. Viral chart cresting as high as No. 7.

     

    Brandon, who moved to Nashville in 2010, signed a publishing deal with Warner/Chappell in 2013 and has been building a devoted following ever since. Brandon co-produced and co-wrote every song on his debut album expected out in 2018.

  • BRANDON LAY WILL JOIN KENNY CHESNEY ON THE TRIP AROUND THE SUN TOUR.

    “Growing up in Jackson, Tennessee, my life revolved around playing sports and going to church,” says Brandon. “Country music was always coming through the speakers, and my mom had great taste in music. She was a school teacher, and I grew up a preacher’s kid. My dad was in the ministry. We were in church or school every time the doors were open and when we weren’t doing that, life kind of revolved around sports – football, baseball, basketball.”

    Brandon debuted 2-pack of songs called SPEAKERS was released to streaming platforms on July 7th. The 2-pack includes the lead single “Speakers, Bleachers, and Preachers” and “Let It.” Only two weeks after the release, “Speakers, Bleachers, and Speakers” became one of the most viral tracks in the U-S, appearing on Spotify’s United States Viral 50 playlist.

    Brandon Lay (background on Speakers, Bleachers and Preachers) OC: …you’re in. :43
    “Growing up in Jackson, Tennessee, my life revolved around playing sports and going to church. Country music was always coming through the speakers, and my mom had great taste in music. She was a school teacher, and I grew up a preacher’s kid. My dad was in the ministry. We were in church or school every time the doors were open and when we weren’t doing that, life kind of revolved around sports – football, baseball, basketball. One piece of advice that stuck with me that my dad gave to me was to write your own book, and when I moved to Nashville, I think it could’ve been very tempting to follow a trend or follow a crowd and just try to be like other guys. That’s something that’s always stuck with me and I’m grateful for, because I think being the best you is pretty good advice, no matter what field you’re in.”
