The fact that Cole Taylor signed a publishing deal with Universal Music Publishing Group after only being in Nashville for 9 months, is a sign that this guy has the talent to make a huge impact in the country music world. Since his move in 2013, it’s been non-stop. Besides catching the attention of publishers, he’s catching the ears of country stars such as Florida Georgia Line, Lady Antebellum and Chase Rice. Come October 14, you’ll be able to hear one of Cole’s co-penned songs, “Sippin’ On Fire”, show up on FGL’s upcoming sophomore album Anything Goes.
Before jumping ship to Music City, Taylor had already released his 2011 debut “Cab of My Chevy” independently while attending college at Valdosta State University. Now, having a publishing deal, the South Georgia native gets the chance to write every day, hone his skills and work on his brand by performing; all of which, he gives his all to. “Whether I am in a room writing a song or on stage in front of a huge crowd, I always want to leave knowing that I put everything I had in that day,” says Taylor.
As Cole looks towards the future, he told The Red and Black, “We have a lot of things working for other artists right now, but I can’t disclose any of that. There’s some cool stuff happening in the next year so watch out.”
