Disney Music Publishing, Nashville has signed Casey Wood to its expanding creative writer roster. The deal is a partnership between Disney Music Publishing and Walter Campbell Music Publishing.

Disney Music Publishing VP Kos Weaver says, “The minute I heard ‘This Is My Blood,’ a song Casey wrote by himself that was recorded by The Dirt Drifters (Warner Bros.), I knew I wanted to work with Casey. It’s great to have a trusted colleague like Walter Campbell along for the ride!”

“I’m very excited for this wonderful opportunity and I’m looking forward to being a part of the success of Disney Music Publishing! My three-year-old thinks it’s pretty awesome too!” added Wood. He is a native of Dallas, West Virginia who left his home of coal mines, steel mills, and farmland after high school graduation to pursue his dream of becoming a household name singer/songwriter in Music City.
