Kobalt Music Group (Kobalt) has inked an exclusive, worldwide administration deal with trio Lady Antebellum.

Through the deal Kobalt will provide full global creative and synch services and represent all songs written by the trio (Hillary Scott, Charles Kelley and Dave Haywood) for their highly anticipated, upcoming Capitol Nashville release.

In addition, Kobalt will also represent select Lady Antebellum catalog repertoire, including works on their 2011 album, Own The Night (Capitol Nashville), including the recent smash hits “We Owned The Night” and “Just A Kiss,” and the songs “Cold As Stone,” “Singing Me Home,” and “Somewhere Love Remains,” among others.

“It is a privilege to have the opportunity to work with such unique individual and collective talent as Charles Kelley, Dave Haywood and Hillary Scott,” said Whitney Daane, Sr. VP of Kobalt Music Group. “As songwriters, they each bring their own creative vision for Lady Antebellum. Their collaboration has created one of country music’s top bands, and they are truly a global ambassador for the format. We are honored that Lady Antebellum has chosen Kobalt and look forward to being a part of their ongoing and future success.”

“It’s very gratifying to be recognized by Lady Antebellum and their team as their publishing partner. As writers and performers they are one of music’s most respected acts. We look forward to a long relationship,” said Richard Sanders, President of Kobalt Music Group.
