It's a good time to be out country singer Brandon Stansell. Along with celebrating his latest move in the music industry, the star is sharing a new song with his fans. 

On Tuesday (Nov. 19), it was announced that Stansell, who has long been managed by Ryan Aceto at Ammo Management, recently signed a new management deal with Producer Entertainment Group (PEG), finalizing the merger between Ammo and PEG. Under PEG's recent deal with Warner Music's Alternative Distribution Alliance, all of Stansell's future releases will be distributed by ADA.

To celebrate, Stansell is treating his fans to a new Christmas song. Titled "Not the Same at Christmastime," the new track strikes a sad note as Stansell sings about dealing with heartbreak during the holidays. His new lyric video (premiering below) weaves through presents and traditions, all while the words appear, showing the sadness of not having a lover to celebrate the holiday with. "Told myself I'd moved on, and all year long I'm fine," he croons. "It's not the same at Christmastime."

In an exclusive statement to Billboard, Stansell says that he is "so excited" to be joining the PEG roster, which is still filled with many fan favorite drag stars from RuPaul's Drag Race. "They have been avid supporters of mine for years now, so being here already feels like home and a natural evolutionary step in my career," he says "The resources and expertise of their staff are perfectly aligned with my goals as a performer and activist."

Jacob Slane, a partner and talent manager at PEG, adds in that the organization is proud to have Stansell joining their lineup. "We look forward to expanding on the already impressive inroads he has made in the country music landscape," he says.
