Emerging singer-songwriter Dustin Collins, of Bardstown, has signed a label-services deal with Average Joes Entertainment for marketing and distribution of his new album, which is scheduled to be released this summer.

Collins’ independent single “Cold Dead Hands” made it to No. 1 on the Billboard Singles Sales chart and he is in the studio preparing for his next music project.

“I am honored and humbled to be part of the Average Joes family! Their team believes in authentic, nonconformist music and knows how to get it out to the fans. This wouldn’t be possible if it weren’t for mentors in my life like David Long and Dave Hufana. They’ve been there for me from the beginning and continue this wild ride with me!” Collins said.

“We are excited to partner with Dustin, his music is authentic and his live show entertains, impresses and he wins new fans every night. We look forward to bringing his music to the widest possible audience as his career continues to grow,” said Forrest Latta, A&R, Average Joes Entertainment.

Collins spent hundreds of miles on the road playing in honky tonks, fairs and festivals throughout the midwest and his home state of Kentucky, including a slot on Aaron Watson’s Vaquero Tour, as well as opening for Chris Janson, Granger Smith, Kane Brown, the Kentucky Headhunters and more.

Average Joes Entertainment is home to Colt Ford, Montgomery Gentry, Devin Burris, Cypress Spring, Charlie Farley, Sarah Ross, Moonshine Bandits, The LACS, Lenny Cooper, Bingx, Tommy Chayne and The Mud Digger Series. Subsidiary labels include AVJ Records and Backroad Records.
