Warner/Chappell Music—the global music publishing arm of Warner Music Group Corp.—together with partner THIS Music—a leading Nashville-based music publishing company—today announced they have extended their worldwide co-publishing agreement for the future works of hit songwriter Ben Hayslip.
“We’re longtime fans of Ben and extremely proud of the year he’s had so far,” said Cameron Strang, Chairman & CEO, Warner/Chappell Music. “He’s one of the most talented songwriters in Nashville and we feel privileged to continue having him on our team.”
“Warner/Chappell and THIS Music have been invaluable to me and my career,” said Hayslip. “Their extensive network of talented songwriters and incredibly vast catalog of songs is awe-inspiring. Extending my partnership with them was the obvious thing to do.”
Hayslip is a staff writer for THIS Music and Warner/Chappell Music and has seen his songs recorded by acts such as Brooks & Dunn, Tim McGraw, Billy Currington, Blake Shelton, Rodney Atkins, Joe Nichols, Jack Ingram and Willie Nelson. He was recently named ASCAP’s 2011 “Country Songwriter of the Year,” due in part to his four recent No. 1 songs: Joe Nichols’ “Gimmie That Girl,” Josh Turner’s “All Over Me,” and Blake Shelton’s “All About Tonight” and “Honey Bee.”
Warner/Chappell Music has a worldwide co-publishing agreement with THIS Music. In addition to co-publishing and administering THIS Music’s output, Warner/Chappell and THIS Music sign and collaborate with writers and artists to identify opportunities for their songs and creative efforts. THIS Music was formed in 2006 and launched in partnership with Warner/Chappell Music by songwriters Tim Nichols, Connie Harrington and GM Rusty Gaston.
