NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — A Nashville singer-songwriter is in the Super Bowl spotlight, as his music will be featured in two separate commercials that air during the game.

Bryant Taylorr, is an Antioch native who graduated from Nashville School of the Arts. He has always had a passion for music.

"I’ve always wanted to play the drums," said Taylorr. "I started singing late in high school and it was a shock to everybody."

After graduation Taylorr was recruited into an all-boy band and signed his first recording contract.

Now Taylorr is focused on his singing and songwriting, and his hard work is paying off. After he signed with the publishing company Prescription Songs in 2019, more doors started opening.

Taylorr wrote the theme songs for the Major League Baseball World Series, Fox Sports, and ACC college football. He also wrote and sang a feature song for the Netflix movie Uncorked, starring Neicy Nash and Courtney B. Vance, and wrote a single for international singer KAI, a member of the mega K-pop group, EXO.

But, now his work is on the biggest stage yet. His singing and songwriting is featured in the trailer for the new CBS drama "The Equalizer." The trailer will air during the Super Bowl.

"We came up with this song about coming back strong, and kind of fighting," said Taylorr. "It’s a strong song."

Taylorr's music will also be in the background of a Frito Lay Super Bowl commercial featuring several NFL legends.

"I’m so excited," said Taylorr. "Honestly, it wasn’t anything that I had on my bucket list."

With Super Bowl commercials on his resume, Taylorr is already looking ahead to accomplishing his next goal.

"My biggest dream is to work with Chris Brown," said Taylorr. "So this is my journey all the way up to when I can get a song to Chris Brown."
