A list of the latest moves in publishing, including new deals and collaborations.
River House Artists and Sony Music Publishing have partnered to sign Nashville favorite Neil Medley to a worldwide co-publishing agreement. Known for writing hits like "Tailgate Blues" by Luke Bryan, "Wasn't That Drunk" by Josh Abbott Band, featuring Carly Pearce, "Made For You" by Jake Owen and more, the country hitmaker's work has topped the Billboard Country Airplay and Mediabase chart as well as the top 10 on Billboard's Canada Country airplay chart.
Though his previous work is not included in the agreement, the duel companies will partner with Medley on all works made moving forward during the term of the deal. According to the songwriter, he is "confident" the duel companies will be great partners to him. "River House Artists is one of the most respected publishing and artist development companies in Nashville. Their track record, combined with Sony's horsepower and industry-wide reach, is an ideal situation," Medley says.
Zebb Luster, vice president and general manager of River House Artists adds "We are thankful he has trusted us to help him continue to grow as a writer, and we look forward to landing many more hits together."
