Rising country duo BoomTown Saints have signed an exclusive, long-term recording agreement with Nashville/Muscle Shoals-based entertainment company, 8 Track Entertainment.
Florida native Chris Ramos and Mississippi native Ben Chism formed BoomTown Saints in 2018. The two initially pursued careers outside of music–Ramos as a healthcare consultant in the pharmaceutical industry, and Chism, who was headed to medical school after graduating with a degree in biology.
After Chism won the regional Texas Country Showdown singing competition, he went on to the Southeast USA contest and finished in the top 10 nationwide, and elected to choose music over medicine. Meanwhile, after landing multiple cuts on pop, country and electronic music albums, Ramos decided to pursue his dream in music and form a band.
The pair will release their debut single, “All Trucks Go To Heaven,” to all digital service providers on July 15. Produced by Noah Gordon and Gary Kraen, the track was written by Taylor Phillips, Ben Stennis and Jeremy Bussey.
“Our team is pumped about the addition of BoomTown Saints to 8 Track Entertainment’s growing roster,” says Gordon, President of 8 Track Entertainment. “Their work ethic combined with their talent and energy are a perfect fit for our growing company and we look forward to getting their first single out in the world.”
