Independent tastemaker BIG LOUD RECORDS is proud to announce the signing of Country artist SEAN STEMALY, a high-octane talent joining one of Music Row’s most exciting rosters. In celebration of the news, Stemaly has also released his hard-driving debut, “Back On A Backroad,” out today (8/16) via all digital service providers.

“Being from the country and now living in Nashville, not a day goes by that I don’t think about being home— cruising backroads with my buddies, going to bonfires, hanging by the river, all that kinda stuff,” shares Stemaly. “That’s why this song is special to me. It’s for anyone who has ever felt like they need to get back to their roots. And to have a producer like Joey [Moi] bring it to life, is the icing on the cake! I hope it speaks to y’all as much as it does to me.”
A self-taught singer-songwriter with a knack for modern, salt-of-the-earth storytelling, Stemaly’s mix of heartland rock and pure-Country soul has carried him all the way from the farm fields of Western Kentucky and Southern Indiana. With an armload of independent releases to his credit, the 24-year-old is now working with superstar producer Joey Moi (Florida Georgia Line, Morgan Wallen) and coming out hot with his Big Loud debut, “Back On A Backroad”.

Written by Michael Hardy, Josh Kerr and Cole Taylor, “Back On A Backroad” features full-throttle grooves and Stemaly’s exhilarating vocal flow, wide open like a middle-of-nowhere highway. The anthemic track— co-produced by Moi and Stemaly’s manager, Maverick’s Lex Lipsitz — is all about leaving the traffic-jammed city for something a little more free.
Stemaly has penned more than 100 songs since his arrival in Nashville two short years ago, including the map-dot connecting standout “Georgia,” which has already garnered more than 1 MILLION Spotify streams in the six months since its release.

“Sean Stemaly is a really great kid. When we first heard his indie-released "Georgia," we knew he was unique. After meeting him, we had no doubt he could be a huge star,” says Big Loud partner Seth England. “Thank you Sean for trusting Big Loud with your bright future.”

As part of the Big Loud family, Stemaly joins a roster of game-changing hitmakers including HARDY, Madison Kozak, Chris Lane, Jake Owen, MacKenzie Porter, Mason Ramsey, and Morgan Wallen. Having already shared the stage with high-profile artists like LANCO, Chris Lane, Morgan Wallen, and others, Stemaly takes his high-energy show back home this weekend for a two-night stint (8/16 & 8/17) at Bud's Rockin' Country Bar in Evansville, Indiana.

SEAN STEMALY was born in Western Kentucky and raised in the river-bottom fields of Southern Indiana, a hard-worker whose Country music comes straight from the only life he knows. Stemaly taught himself to sing over endless days in the cab of a Case IH 9370 tractor, planting the seeds of stardom to the sound of icons like Brooks & Dunn, George Strait, Alan Jackson and Jason Aldean. Now based in Nashville and signed to BIG LOUD RECORDS, the 24-year-old diesel wrenching, heavy-equipment operating talent infuses modern Country with youthful, salt-of-the-earth swagger and rocked up heartland soul – a sound that’s both fresh and based in timeless traditions. He’s penned over 100 songs in Music City’s vibrant collaborative scene – including the clever cross-Country romance of “Georgia” (over 1 million Spotify streams) – and is currently working on his debut studio recordings with superstar producer Joey Moi (Florida Georgia Line, Morgan Wallen). Stemaly has already hit the road with artists like Riley Green, HARDY, LANCO, Chris Lane and Morgan Wallen, among others, and his story is only just beginning to grow.

Founded in 2015 as an expansion of Big Loud to take chances where others would not, Big Loud Records boasts an instant success story that is still unfolding. Right out of the gate, the independent firm sent then-newcomer Chris Lane’s “Fix” to GOLD-certified #1 status (the label’s first-ever release), and backed it up with two more Top 10 hits. Today, Big Loud Records continues to punch above its weight, adding big wins by signing proven star Jake Owen to the roster and returning him to the top of the radio charts. “I Was Jack (You Were Diane)” became a GOLD-certified #1 in 2018, and “Down to the Honkytonk” notched another GOLD-certified Top 10. Big Loud Records has also launched the career of party-starting phenom Morgan Wallen, who just scored back-to-back #1s on the Country Radio Airplay charts with the PLATINUM hits “Up Down” featuring Florida Georgia Line and multi-week chart-topper “Whiskey Glasses.” The Big Loud Records family also includes lyrically gifted upstart HARDY and viral sensation Mason Ramsey, and so far its roster has accounted for more than 1.8 BILLION on-demand streams in the US alone, and global totals topping 2.7 BILLION (Nielsen Music). As of July 2019, Big Loud Records was the #1 streaming market share holder among true independent Country labels and #6 overall (country currents YTD, Nielsen Music), with its reputation for shaking things up extending to staff as well. Big Loud Records VP/Promotion, Stacy Blythe, was awarded the year's top honor for SVP/VP at the 2019 CRS/Country Aircheck Awards.
