Aaron Scherz, the co-writer/co-producer behind Maddie & Tae‘s hit “Girl In A Country Song,” has signed an exclusive publishing agreement with Nashville-based music publishing house Liv Write Play. The company’s roster also includes Olivia Lane and Leland Grant.

“I am fired up to join the Liv Write Play family! They are a very forward-thinking organization that is tirelessly focused on creating what’s next for the format,” says Scherz. “Ilya and I have worked together in the studio for years and I think he is one of the best musical minds to ever grace Music Row. I’m looking forward to combining our unique skillsets to develop some very compelling artists and music.”

Scherz co-wrote five songs included on Maddie & Tae’s debut studio album, as well as the duet “Enough” performed by Reba and Jennifer Nettles. His tracks have also been featured on the series Nashville and The Music of Nashville soundtracks.

Liv Write Play’s Creative Director Ilya Toshinskiy shares, “Aaron is a very talented songwriter/producer and one of the hardest working people I know. He has done extraordinary work in artist development and it’s great to see all of his recent success. I know there is only more where that came from!”

“Because Liv Write Play is an artist development-driven company, we feel Aaron brings a lot to the team,” adds Liv Write Play’s VP Dennis Kurtz. “We are all looking forward to working with him. I can’t talk enough about how excited we are to welcome him to our Liv Write Play family.”
