Does He Have Other Children?
According to ERLDC, Oliver Anthony and his wife named their third child, Amos. The newborn baby boy joins his two older children, whose names have yet to be disclosed to the public.
Oliver Anthony’s new bundle of joy arrived just weeks after the “Rich Men North Of Richmond” singer signed his first-ever industry deal – a booking agent.
The 31-year-old singer/songwriter signed with United Talent Agency (UTA), a leading global talent, sports, entertainment, and advisory company, for exclusive worldwide representation in all areas.
“I am pleased to announce that I hired two gentlemen in Nashville this week to help me with creating the 2024 tour,” Anthony wrote at the time. “We’re going to be all over the US, and even doing some international travel. There’s no way I can pull that off by myself. Curt and Jeffery at UTA do all the legwork to make the performances happen safely and professionally.”
Anthony continued, “As I said early on, I am not signing any deals or selling any percentage of my music. There’s no amount of money that is worth risking the direct line of communication you and I currently have.”
This year, Oliver Anthony stands out as one of the most remarkable success stories in the music industry. His extraordinary journey kicked off in August when he independently released his now chart-topping track, “Rich Men North of Richmond,” which has struck a chord with people across the United States.
Notably, he achieved a historic feat by becoming the first artist to make a No. 1 debut on the Billboard charts without any prior chart presence. This achievement makes Oliver Anthony the first unsigned artist since 1994 to be No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100. The last unsigned artist to earn a No. 1 hit on the Billboard Hot 100 was Lisa Loeb with her single, “Stay (I Missed You),” which was released in 1994 via RCA Records.
Time Off The Road
As for what’s next, Oliver Anthony recently revealed that he will be taking some time off to focus on new music and spending time with his family.
“I’ll be home most of November and December and working on writing brand new songs for early 2024 release,” he revealed on Instagram. “I have dozens of unfinished songs that have been put on the back burner in the whirlwind of the last two months.”
“Rich Men North Of Richmond” continues to amass thousands of daily streams, Oliver Anthony has given fans a taste of his forthcoming new music by sharing news songs, including “Rich Man’s Gold,” “90 Some Chevy” and “I Want To Go Home.”
