Nashville, TN – (February 15, 2011) – Southern charmer, James Dupre will be the first to tell you that dreams really do come true. While working as an EMT Paramedic, Dupre fueled his musical dreams by posting his videos on YouTube which was eventually discovered by Ellen Degeneres. The Louisiana-native was then invited to join the talk-show host on her show last March where he performed a beautiful rendition of Matchbox Twenty’s hit “3 AM.” Dupre has posted over 100 YouTube videos with over half-a-million channel views and recently signed his first record deal with Warner Bros.
Warner Music Nashville was created in 2009 to expand the presence of WMG and its family of labels in Nashville. The division is home to Atlantic Records, Warner Bros. Records, Elektra Nashville and Word Entertainment.
