Big Machine Label Group (BMLG) President/CEO Scott Borchetta and Prescription Songs Lukasz “Dr. Luke” Gottwald have created a music publishing joint venture between Nashville-based Big Machine Music and Los Angeles-based Prescription Songs. The partnership will allow the companies to co-publish songwriters and artists whose talents translate across genres. The announcement was made at the eighth annual ASCAP “I Create Music” EXPO in Hollywood, Calif.

The first writer signed to the publishing joint venture is 18-year-old artist RaeLynn, who was a contestant on Season 2 of NBC’s The Voice. The Baytown, Texas, native is currently writing music for her forthcoming debut Country album.

Big Machine Music (BMM) has signed talented songwriters such as Country hitmakers Justin Moore, Dustin Lynch, Greg Bates and Raul Malo of The Mavericks. BMM’s hit songs include “Til My Last Day” & “Backwoods” (Justin Moore), “Cowboys and Angels” (Lynch) and “Did It For The Girl” (Bates).

“Dr. Luke is one of the most talented writer/producer/publisher forces in the world,” said Borchetta. “When he rang me up with the idea to join together and create a direct and collaborative publishing company I think I said ‘yes’ before he could finish the sentence. By joining together, our collective opportunities will provide an incredible pathway for our writers to have access to the biggest and best in Pop and Country.”

“Big Machine is one of the most innovative and forward-thinking independent companies in music today,” said Gottwald. “This collaboration between Big Machine Music and Prescription Songs, will be a wonderful new home for incredible music.”
