Ian Flanigan has signed an exclusive deal with Reviver Publishing on the heels of the successful launch of his Reviver Records debut “Grow Up (feat. Blake Shelton.)” The brooding single impacted the iTunes singles sales charts at #3, and the iTunes country sales charts at #2 following Flanigan’s return to The Voice to premiere the track on May 17, 2021.
Flanigan will split time between Nashville and tour stops throughout the summer, as he intends to write songs for his upcoming album as part of this new arrangement with Reviver Publishing. David Ross, Reviver CEO/Founder says, “Ian’s depth continues to amaze me. His writing abilities are second to none. His wisdom and the way he captures the images we all have and puts them into words will make everyone happy, happy, happy. I’m so grateful to have Ian as a part of the Reviver Publishing team.” Flanigan adds, “I’m beyond grateful to have the opportunity to write with some of the best writers out there and continue to learn and grow as an artist. David Ross and my whole team have been really amazing at guiding me through this whole process and it’s been an honor to be welcomed into the Reviver Family. Can’t wait to share what we’ve been working on!”
Flanigan has seen his team grow significantly in the months following his successful run as a finalist on The Voice, signing with Reviver as mentioned, as well as JLS Artist Management for exclusive artist management, Kinkead Entertainment for exclusive booking, and William Tanenbaum, Esq. as Flanigan’s attorney.
On the production side, “Grow Up” benefits from the experience and wisdom of Grammy winning producer, Craig Alvin (Kacey Musgraves, Little Big Town, Will Hoge). The song was recorded at Addiction Studios in Nashville, and was written by Jon Nite, Chase McGill, and Jessie Jo Dillon. Blake Shelton’s guest vocal was recorded at Starstruck Studios in Nashville.
