Chris Bandi is ready to make his breakthrough at country radio with his single “Man Enough Now,” which he co-wrote with Jason Massey and Jason Duke.

He signed with RECORDS, a joint venture label between Barry Weiss and Sony Music Entertainment. “Man Enough Now” will head to radio in January, and the track has already earned more than 60 million streams on Spotify.

“I was thinking about a relationship I had been in in college and some things I wouldn’t do now that I had done then,” he says of writing the song. “I brought this title in about ‘If we were in a relationship now, I would probably get a few things right because I’m man enough now.’ They put it on Spotify and it’s changed my life.”
