Kristian Bush has signed a publishing, production and label deal with BBR Music Group, making the singer-songwriter part of the label's Wheelhouse Records imprint and Magic Mustang Music roster.

The former Sugarland member is currently working on his second solo album, the follow-up project to his 2015 release, Southern Gravity.

"As both a recording artist and a songwriter, I am honored to be a part of the BBR Music Group / Magic Mustang family," Bush says in a press release. "I'm in love with making music, and I’m humbled every day that I get to do this job.

"My train runs on believers, and I found some incredible supporters in this building," he continues, speaking of his new crew at BBR Music Group. "There’s no telling what can happen when like-minded people get together, so to be surrounded by this team and given this opportunity makes me feel like a rocket sitting on a launchpad. I can’t wait to take off."

As one-half of Sugarland, with Jennifer Nettles, Bush played a big part in writing almost all the duo's hits, although he isn't the one who picks singles.

“… It’s not my job to go convince the radio station to play it; it’s somebody else’s job," Bush explains. "I have always maintained that the artist needs to spend their time making better songs.”

Southern Gravity is available for purchase on Amazon and iTunes.
