Larry Fleet

Blue-collar, Tennessee-native Larry Fleet grew up with a love of music sparked by an eclectic mix of influences spanning from Merle Haggard to Marvin Gaye. To make ends meet, Fleet spent tireless hours working construction jobs – never losing his dream of making music. A chance encounter with Jake Owen in 2017 led to a collaborative friendship and an opening slot on the road with Owen. Not long after, Fleet was sharing the stage with a living legend and one of his heroes – Willie Nelson – and etching his mark in the Nashville songwriting community co-writing with esteemed tunesmiths including Rhett Akins, Brett James and Kendell Marvel. The hard-working family man (and father of 1-year-old son, Waylon) is now turning heads with his debut single “Where I Find God” – a powerful ode to finding peace in the higher power’s presence. Garnering Fleet praise for his “emotive vocals” (Billboard), the song’s official music video continues to resonate with fans, amassing 6 MILLION+ YouTube views. “Where I Find God” follows the release of Fleet’s aptly-titled debut album on Big Loud Records, WORKIN’ HARD, produced by studio ace Joey Moi (Jake Owen, Morgan Wallen).
