Brad Cotter

 Nashville, Tennessee, USA

Though I've had some mainstream country success, my new music is southern rock / R&B infused with a bit of a spiritual side. It's cool and rockin' and my voice is soulful. I can work alone with guitar and piano, or front anything from a four to a ten piece band



Brad Cotter has been on an amazing journey from childhood gospel stardom to his 2004 win of the popular USA Network reality show, “Nashville Star” twenty-two years later. Growing up in Opelika Alabama, his youth was a roller coaster ride of love and guilt, admiration and abuse, faith and doubt, and living with the joys and dysfunction of the small town deep south.

Through the ins and outs of nationwide touring and the Nashville songwriting and studio singer scene, Brad continues his lifelong determination and dream -- bringing his great music to his fans. After spending nearly two years on a promising new project which was sadly scrapped due to creative differences, Brad is back, working with one of the Grammy Nominated writer / producers of his Sony “Patient Man” collection.

They've recently finished a new album for OMG Records and are working on an exciting and revealing autobiography titled "Nashville Scarred." The book includes Brad's experiences winning Nashville Star, growing up as a Gospel child star and the ups and downs of the music industry.

Brad has toured and performed with greats such as Charlie Daniels and Willie Nelson and is known for his energetic and captivating live performances.
