About Exit 216
Steven Battey and Cole Burkett teamed up in 2020 to create the urban/country duo, Exit 216. Before the partnership, Steven worked with Luke Combs and their third release “One Number Away” garnered the #1 song on Billboard Country charts and ASCAP Song of the Year Award in 2019. He also made history as one of the most relevant and influential African American contributors to current country music. By the time Cole was 19, he already had a strong catalog of songs and began working with some of Nashville’s top writers and producers. People were starting to notice the gift he had, not only as a natural songwriter but as a premier vocalist and player. After a few songwriting sessions together, the strength of their music was undeniable. The summer release of their first single “Brother” speaks for itself. Exit 216 is more than a duo hoping to impact the music industry, they hope to unify and inspire listeners to also create change.
