NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Progressive country/pop artist CWBY has inked an exclusive deal with CDX Records. The signing comes on the cusp of his forthcoming single release, “Insecure” on Friday, May 13. The track will serve as the lead single from his debut EP “Loving Me Ain’t Easy” due this Summer. With his upcoming release under CDX, CWBY has set the foundation for a breakout year in the genre. Launched in October 2021, CDX Records is the boutique imprint label for unique projects of CDX Nashville, trusted promotional delivery service to country radio for over 3 decades.
“CWBY is an innovator as much as he is a fantastic artist. He has his finger on the pulse of what is happening. We believe he will change the business like Sam Phillips and Sun Records did,” said Joe Kelly, President of CDX Records. “CWBY and his music are right in the wheelhouse of where our music is going and we are proud to be his team.”
Originally from Florida, the now Californian first headed west in entrepreneurial pursuits, where he made name for himself in the cannabis industry and coined the name “Cannabis Cowboy.” First discovering his love for music when he began using songwriting as an outlet to express himself, CWBY soon understood that his passion for sharing his life stories extended beyond just a hobby. Since then, he has spent the last 2 years refining his craft through his rigorous dedication to finding and utilizing every possible opportunity for growth.
“I’m hyped to have CDX as my distribution partner. They believe in me and this journey and I’m looking forward to taking my career to the next level with them,” CWBY said.
CWBY’s debut release “Trapstar” has racked up over 1 million streams on Spotify alone, while the music video has nearly 2 million views. Using a highly contemporary and genre inclusive approach to finding his sound, demonstrated in fan-favorite tracks such as “Sorry Mama” and “Toxic,” CWBY has created a compelling infusion of country, pop, rock, R&B and rap influences, which CDX Records enthusiastically believes to be the future of music.
