Plaid Flag Music has signed Mae Estes to a worldwide publishing deal with the Nashville-based firm.

“We patiently searched for the perfect addition to our music family,” said Kendall Warren, Co-Founder of Plaid Flag Music. “Our patience was rewarded when we met Mae Estes. Her music and personality captivated us from the first time we heard her.”

An Arkansas native, Estes has been writing songs since she can remember, testing out her music on crowds across the state at rodeos and local radio stations week after week. After moving to Nashville in 2015, she’s has written songs for McKenna Hydrick, Cody Belew and Nate Botsford, among others.

“I couldn’t be more excited about the opportunity to work with Mae alongside my Plaid Flag team…equally excited for the world to hear this talented artist,” said Stephanie Cox, SVP, Creative at Kobalt Music.

As an artist, Estes released her debut single, “Naked,” to over 100,000 worldwide streams. She’s appeared on high profile playlists like Spotify’s New Music Nashville, and toured extensively with Armed Forces Entertainment in support of our servicemen and women.

“I’m so inspired by the badass women who run Plaid Flag and feel incredibly lucky to be a part of this team,” said Estes. “I don’t know how the restaurant industry will survive without me, but I’m excited to find out.”
