Here, Bryan got signed to Nashville Records and released the first of his six music albums in 2007 called "I'll Stay Me". Kelly, Bryan's sister, was instrumental in the promotion of this album and even organized a gathering of friends for his debut several days before her demise. Among the first of his songs in his career was "All My Friends Say" which garnered him a lot of fame.
