Music Row veteran Bobby Rymer has joined Nashville-based Montage Music Group as the head of its newly-formed publishing division.

Most recently, Rymer had been running his own publishing company, but he previously served as VP/GM of the Nashville office of Almo/Irving/Rondor, where staff writers included Emmylou Harris, Annie Roboff, Paul Kennerley, Nanci Griffith and Patty Griffin, among others.

Rymer has also worked in A&R at Capitol Records Nashville.

Launched last summer, Montage Music Group includes a record label,
publishing company and artist management division.
