The Kentucky five-piece, managed by Coran Capshaw's Red Light, follow Kings of Leon from Creative Artists Agency to William Morris Endeavor in the US

Genre-blurring American rockers My Morning Jacket have signed with William Morris Endeavor (WME) in North America, Canada and Mexico.
The signing of My Morning Jacket (pictured) on Friday capped off a busy fortnight for WME, in which the agency also signed Kings of Leon (from CAA) and hired several former CAA agents for its Nashville office.
MMJ, whose experimental, psychedelic music straddles rock and country, recently wrapped up a successful North American tour, which included stops at Electric Forest and the Peach music festivals. In March, they will host the fourth annual One Big Holiday event, which will take place at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in the Dominican Republic and feature performances from Portugal the Man, Nathanial Rateliff and the Night Sweats and Spoon.
Managed by Red Light Management, My Morning Jacket continue to be represented by CAA for the rest of the world excluding North America, Canada and Mexico.
