Grady Block has signed with Big Loud Publishing. He joins his brother and co-writer Rocky Block on the Big Loud Publishing roster.
The Nashville native is the son of local radio personality Billy Block and was raised around music, playing drums from the time he could walk. His progression from behind the kit to behind the song was an easy one, and he was influenced by a wide variety of music ranging from Future and Fountains of Wayne to The Eagles and Jon Cleary.
Block has already earned his first cut as a songwriter on Lil Durk‘s “Broadway Girls” featuring Morgan Wallen, as well as his first co-production credit on Nelly’s Heartland project (“Five Drinks Ago”).
“We are thrilled to welcome Grady Block to the Big Loud Publishing family,” says Big Loud Publishing’s Senior Director of A&R, Michael Giangreco. “We have had the pleasure to get to know Grady over the past few years drumming for Ernest and being a close collaborator of Rocky’s. Watching him develop as a songwriter and producer is inspiring and we couldn’t be more excited for what is to come.”
“I’m so excited to join the Big Loud family,” Block shares. “It is a dream come true to have the opportunity to bolster and uphold the legacy that is Big Loud. From the top to the bottom, it is an absolute all-star team, which made my decision a no brainer. Thank you, Craig [Wiseman], Seth [England], and Joey [Moi] for taking a chance on a kid from South Nashville.”
