Nashville, TN…(January 18, 2013)… Black River Entertainment expands its artist roster today with the addition of John King. News of the signing comes on the heels of the digital single release of “Bulldawgs,” the first single released by John and the band on Black River Entertainment.
“I am thrilled to have John King join Black River,” shared Doug Johnson, Black River Entertainment’s Vice President of A&R. “He is a great writer, exciting performer, a gifted, unique singer and as authentic as anyone I have ever worked with. And I love the fact he’s from my home state, the great state of Georgia.”
Available now, “Bulldawgs” is a rowdy fight song inspired by John King’s experiences as a University of Georgia Bulldog. The song celebrates the dynamic surrounding the athletic culture of the University of Georgia and its fanatics while poking fun at some of UGA’s biggest rivals in the SEC. The song is written by Georgia natives John King and renowned songwriter Doug Johnson. Johnson is known for his seven number one and ten top ten hits including Lee Brice’s “Love Like Crazy” and Randy Travis’ “Three Wooden Crosses.”
Released on Black River Entertainment, home to notable country artists such as Craig Morgan, Kellie Pickler and Sarah Darling, fans of “Bulldawgs” may purchase the song on iTunes or Amazon and watch the lyric video for the song YouTube.
