He moved to Nashville after graduating in 2010 and in 2013 signed a publishing deal with Warner/Chappell. This past December, Brandon was honored at the 20th Annual ASCAP Foundation Awards in New York where he received the Harold Adamson Lyric Award, presented to an outstanding lyricist who has participated in one of the foundation’s songwriter workshops. Several country artists are taken notice of his songwriting talent, including Cole Swindell who recorded “Home Game” for his current album, a song co-written by Brandon.
