United Talent Agency (UTA) has announced it has signed singer-songwriter Fancy Hagood for worldwide representation in all areas—swiftly after signing Oliver Anthony.

Fancy Hagood hails from Bentonville, AR (home of Walmart) and first found success writing songs for stars like Christina Aguilera, Little Big Town, Rascal Flatts, and Anderson East. His debut album ‘Southern Curiosity’ was released in 2021 to widespread critical acclaim—earning him a nomination for ‘Best Country Record’ at The Libera Awards. Last year, Hagood released “Blue Dream Baby” featuring Kacey Musgraves.

Fancy has received support from iconic artists like Brandi Carlile, who called him an “artist to watch,” and Sir Elton John, who asked Fancy to appear as a guest on his Rocket Hour Radio Show. Fancy Hagood also hosts two Apple Radio shows—’Trailblazers’ and ‘Hallelujah Anyway.’

‘Trailblazers’ celebrates artists who have expanded the country music genre by breaking down barriers, while ‘Hallelujah Anyway’ explores the intersection between music and spirituality.

His music has resonated with listeners, earning Fancy Hagood more than 30 million streams across multiple listening platforms. “Southern Sound,” the first single off of his highly anticipated sophomore album was released on October 4. He is currently touring with the Brothers Osborne, opening for a handful of dates on their fall tour.

UTA Music aims to be at the forefront of culture with a client roster that ranges from timeless icons to rising hit makers. That rising hit makers category is especially interesting as it now includes Oliver Anthony, the singer behind the viral hit “Rich Men North of Richmond.” UTA also represents veteran country singer Jamey Johnson, who appeared with Anthony during his first rural gig. Other UTA Music clients include Lizzo, Post Malone, Paramore, Cardi B, Karol G, Lil Nas X, Muse, Halsey, Anitta, 21 Savage, Guns N’ Roses, and Burna Boy.
