PLAYING EACH WEEK ON TOP COUNTRY RADIO STATIONS COAST-TO-COAST

 ON THE ROAD WITH BRAD PAISLEY ALL SUMMER

RCA Nashville’s groundbreaking DJ/remixer/producer DEE JAY SILVER has joined the illustrious artist roster at Red Light Management, home to country superstars Tim McGraw, Luke Bryan, Dierks Bentley and many more. SILVER will be represented by day-to-day manager Nina Ruckteschler, under the direction of Shawn McSpadden.

“Red Light Management is thrilled to be working with Dee Jay Silver,” McSpadden and Ruckteschler said. “We’ve followed his career for some time now, and are very excited to see what this partnership brings! He is a great talent, and we can’t wait to watch his career grow in the years to come.”

SILVER added, “I’m really excited to be a part of Red Light’s roster. Everyone over there is the best at what they do. Looking forward to what the future holds!”

In another big move, SILVER has also signed with William Morris Endeavor Entertainment for representation. The first DJ signed to a Nashville record label was brought over by veteran agent Kevin Neal who recently joined the powerhouse agency. In addition to representing SILVER, Neal will continue working with Jason Aldean, Florida Georgia Line, Colt Ford and Parmalee.

“Dee Jay Silver is the preeminent DJ in country music,” says Neal. “When I put him on the road with Jason Aldean in 2011, some people thought it was a risk, but the crowds loved Silver and the energy he brought from the first show. He broke the ground for all other DJs in country music today.”

“I’m proud to be part of WME,” SILVER exclaims. “Class act full of superstars and I’m honored to be a part of the team! Seems like whatever Kevin Neal touches turns to gold…proud to be with him!”

Every Saturday night SILVER takes over the airwaves with his weekly syndicated radio show called “The Country Club with Dee Jay Silver.” The show features his up-tempo mixes and mash-ups of hits from country music’s biggest stars and newcomers, with an infusion of unique rhythms and occasional tracks from other genres. Over 40 markets including some of the leading country radio stations across America are already on board. SILVER recently spoke with Billboard.com about his new radio show; read that interview here.

The Nashville-based DJ is currently crisscrossing the country as part of Brad Paisley’s “Country Nation World Tour presented by KRAFT Cheese.” SILVER performs alongside Paisley, within his headlining set, and offers country music fans a unique experience. Each night the two battle it out, turntables vs. guitar. Check out a video that recently surfaced of their musical duel: http://youtu.be/HSr7vLvoSc4. SILVER also has festival performances confirmed, including the Faster Horses Festival this weekend, July 18-20, where he’ll host post-concert parties each night. All SILVER tour dates are listed below and for links to purchase tickets, visit www.deejaysilver.com/index.php/schedule.html.

What’s being said about DEE JAY SILVER:

 “At this club, he treated country like any other genre — mixing it seamlessly with mainstream hip-hop and dance hits. Modern country, with its heavy bass thump and rapped verses, fits neatly into this paradigm, but he also displayed how older songs, like ‘Boot Scootin’ Boogie’ by Brooks & Dunn and Garth Brooks’s ‘Friends in Low Places,’ were just as friendly to the dance floor. This is mainstream country now — nightclubs, spring break, college parties, city life.”

–Jon Caramanica, NEW YORK TIMES, 5/25/14

 “After years of playing club residencies, making unofficial SoundCloud mixtapes and warming up arena crowds for Jason Aldean, Dee Jay Silver became the first mash-up DJ to sign to a major country label, in his case, Sony Nashville, which put out his debut EP. It includes a track featuring Alabama, Southern rap group Nappy Roots and a crisp, programmed loop — a combo that seems perfectly natural to the first generation and a half of country fans who grew up with hip-hop as an integral part of their musical worlds.”

–Jewly Hight, ROLLING STONE COUNTRY, 6/10/14
