The Action: Hitmakers' Club

Dr. Luke and Big Machine are teaming to engineer a new renaissance for pop and country crossover hits. Dr. Luke's Prescription Songs has inked a joint venture with the country music heavyweight to form a publishing group. The 30-40 songwriters in Prescription's stable will work with 10 Big Machine writers to craft hits for the likes of Katy Perry and Taylor Swift. Both companies said new artists will benefit from the deal as well, including recent Big Machine signee and "The Voice" contestant RaeLynn, who begins recording her debut album next week.
