A multi-platinum artist with a string of five No. 1 hits and a mantel full of awards, Bryan
White is regarded as a master stylist.
"His sense of self and style as an artist have always been extraordinary," says Asylum Records Co-President and White's co-producer Kyle
Lehning. "It has been a treat to watch him develop, and every time I get in the studio with him, I'm impressed by what he brings to the table. He's an old soul leading a youthful movement in country music."
creativity stems from his determination to build a career, rather than just score hits.
"Each day I do something musical," he says. "I write songs, or play, or
practice. I listen to a lot of music, but I don't listen to records like I used to. Now, I
listen to the production or specific things about songs. It's all part of a learning
process for me."
He has co-written hits for other artists including the Top 5 "I Don't Believe In
Goodbye" for Sawyer Brown and "Imagine That" for
Diamond Rio both featured on the artists' greatest hits
Bryan White sings great songs about matters of the heart and he delivers them
with an honesty, innocence and purity of spirit that have made him one of the most popular
personalities in country music.
He earned his accolades with determination, talent and optimism and has
silenced his skeptics. Billboard had this to say: "This guy
is the real thing. He's got a voice older than his years, a brilliant song sense and most
importantly he understands what country music is all about. Everyone keeps asking where
tomorrow's country stars are here's one today."
Bryan White's popularity covers the spectrum. He is
fun-loving, but takes the responsibility of being a role model for younger fans seriously.
He maintains a high moral code, yet at the most hectic and exciting time of his life, he's
keeping his cool and handling it all with calm dignity, politeness and charm.
"Country music and traditional family values have been part of me
my whole life," he says. "If I were to go anywhere else with my music, I'd be
betraying something about myself. This is where I belong."
