Warner Bros. Records Nashville chief creative officer Paul Worley, a noted producer, has formed Skyline Music Publishing. His partners in the firm are Beaumont, Texas-based attorney Glen Morgan and producer/songwriter/publishing vet Wally Wilson and Chip Voorhis, who are partners in the DoubleTake Sound studio.

Nashville-based Skyline has opened with six staff songwriters. Its executives will initially focus on scouting talent in Texas. Worley owns a catalog of more than 1,500 songs but can't work them directly due to conflict-of-interest concerns with his position at Warner Bros.

Prior to joining Warner Bros., Worley was VP of creative services at Sony ATV/Tree and executive VP/creative at Sony Music Nashville. Wilson is a former executive at Universal Music Publishing. Voorhis previously was VP at Blue Water Music.
