In what can only be described as a devastating blow to the music industry -- TMZ has learned Spencer Pratt is now the proud owner of his very own music company.
According to documents obtained by TMZ, the day the music died was November 18, 2009 ... when Pratt was declared the humble owner of "King Spencer Music."
Pratt was granted the name for a filing fee of $23 -- which is ironically the same price as a pair of Aearo Peltor Low Profile Folding Ear Muffs.
We smell a stocking stuffer!!
