Brad and Brett Warren started as recording artists in their hometown of Tampa, Fl. They moved to Nashville in 1995 and in 1997 signed a record deal with RCA records. They made 3 albums for RCA’s sister label BNA Records; in addition, they had one independent release on 429 Records called “Well Deserved Obscurity.” During that time, they toured extensively as an opening act for Tim McGraw and Faith Hill, as well as opened for many other artists. As artists, they have had 7 Billboard Top 40 hits. McGraw took an interest in their songwriting and since then has recorded over 30 of their songs.
They were both celebrity judges on the 2nd season of “Nashville Star.” In 2005 and 2006, they had their own reality series on CMT called “Barely Famous, The Warren Brothers.” Their sense of humor has landed them as part time radio personalities, and they’ve even had a few film cameos. They were CMA nominees for Duo of the Year for 6 straight years and had Grammy nominations for Song of the Year (“If You’re Reading This”) and a CMA Song of the Year (“Anyway”). In 2013 the duo won a Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Original Song for ‘Good Afternoon America,’ the theme song for the ABC program ‘Good Afternoon America’ which they co-wrote with Little Big Town.
