RVSHVD INKS WITH EMPIRE PUBLISHING
12/6/21

23-year-old South Georgia native RVSHVD has inked a deal with EMPIRE’s publishing division.

The singer/songwriter first gained traction posting country renditions of hip-hop tracks on social media before dropping original singles like “Dirt Road,” “My Side of Town” and “Raised Up,” the latter of which garnered nearly 6m views on TikTok and reached Top 10 on the iTunes’ All Genres chart.

“I’m thankful to everybody at EMPIRE for the opportunity and my friends, family and my fans for the support of my music,” said RVSHVD. “It’s so dope to be able to live my dreams and do what I love.”

“As EMPIRE Nashville continues to grow, we're thrilled to add artist/writer RVSHVD to our roster,” added Eric Hurt, VP of A&R. “We believe his unique style and talent is important to the country format and we're excited to be a part of his growing career.”

RVSHVD is the latest to join EMPIRE’s expanding publishing division, which includes recent signee Nick Wayne as well as writers like Yung Bleu, India Got Them Beats, !llmind, Nebu Kiniza, Young Dolph, Fuse (of 808 Mafia), Justin Love, Kal V and more.
