Bradley Banning grew up mowing lawns and writing songs. He says, “My dad owned a landscaping company growing up, but he wrote songs when he got home at night. My dad’s dedication to our family and songwriting taught me to never quit on something you love. Whether it’s your family, friends, music, etc…”
In 2017, Bradley released his first single, “Don’t Mess With Texas” that he recorded in his bedroom. “Don’t Mess With Texas” was one of the few debut singles from any artist that broke top 20 on the Texas charts in 2017 and ended up receiving major airplay on stations across Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, and New Mexico. Bradley's
follow up single, "More" went to radio in March of 2018 and was his second top 40 single in Texas.
Following the release of his 2019 EP 'Songwriter' and three years after the release of his first single, "Don't Mess With Texas" Bradley releases his third radio single “Texan” as a tip of the hat to everyone who has helped move his music forward along the way.
