Big Machine Music Appoints Director of Music Publishing

Alex Heddle111Big Machine Music (BMM) has appointed Alex Heddle to the newly-created Director of Music Publishing position. BMM is home to such hit artists/songwriters as Justin Moore, Greg Bates, Dustin Lynch and Raul Malo (of The Mavericks), along with hot newcomer RaeLynn.

“Alex has a strong reputation as an aggressive songplugger and is a passionate advocate for songwriters. He is a great fit for the culture we are building at Big Machine Music and we are proud to have him join the team,” said BMM Vice President Mike Molinar.

In his new role, Heddle will assist with day-to-day management of the BMM roster and creative representation of the catalog. With a background in songwriter and artist relations, the Belmont University graduate most recently served as the Creative Director for both Tom Leis Music and Love Monkey Music (the publishing venture of Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame inductee Bob DiPiero). He is responsible for song placements for hit acts such as Lady Antebellum, Thompson Square and Alan Jackson, among many others.

“I’m very proud and excited to be joining the impressive team at Big Machine Music and I look forward to helping it grow. Many thanks to Scott Borchetta and Mike Molinar for this great opportunity,” stated Heddle.

The BMM catalog includes “Til My Last Day” (Moore), “Cowboys and Angels” (Lynch), “Did It For The Girl” (Bates), “From A Table Away” (Sunny Sweeney), and “She Cranks My Tractor” (Lynch) as well as tracks on the The Music Of Nashville (Season 1, Volume 1) soundtrack, from the ABC hit drama. The Nashville-based publishing company also recently created a joint venture with Lukasz “Dr. Luke” Gottwald’s Prescription Songs, allowing the two companies to co-publish songwriters and artists whose unique talents translate across genres.

Heddle will report directly to Molinar and can be reached via: [email protected]com.
