EMI Music Publishing has signed a long-term worldwide publishing agreement with singer, songwriter Randy Houser.
Houser’s self-penned hit singles include “Boots On,” which spent two weeks at No. 1 on MusicRow’s CountryBreakout Chart and reached No. 2 on the Billboard Country Songs Chart, as well as ‘Whistlin Dixie’ which has sold over 150,000 digital copies to date and “A Man Like Me.” Houser has also co-written hits for artists including Justin Moore and Trace Adkins.
“Songwriting is such an important part of what I do, it is something I feel like I need to do. A working relationship with EMI, Ben Vaughn, and their entire creative team will provide more resources for me as I continue to focus on that aspect of my career,” said Houser.
The new co-publishing agreement with EMI Music Publishing will see Houser’s catalog and all future songwriting work represented by the company on a global basis, including his new studio album, which is due for release later this year on Stoney Creek Records. Houser is managed by Fitzgerald Hartley.
“Randy is a world class songwriter and performer who continues to grow creatively and we are extremely proud to welcome him into the EMI family. The whole team is excited to have him on board and we can’t wait share in this next stage of his career and for the world to be able to hear the new record,” said EMI Music Publishing Executive VP/GM Ben Vaughn.
