PJM/Songs has renewed its long-term publishing agreement with Nashville Songwriter Hall of Fame member Matraca Berg.

“At PJM/SONGS, nothing is more important than our relationships with our songwriters,” said Pat Higdon,  founder of Patrick Joseph Music, a joint venture with SONGS Music Publishing.  “For the majority of my career as a publisher, I have had the pleasure of working alongside Matraca who I consider to be one of the most talented and successful writers in contemporary country music. I am so pleased we were able to sign her to the company so that she and I can continue our great run together.”

Berg penned her first No. 1 record at the age of 18, “Faking Love,” sung by T.G. Sheppard and Karen Brooks. Berg’s songs have been recorded and performed by artists including Reba McEntire, Trisha Yearwood, Kenny Chesney, Keith Urban, Martina McBride, Deana Carter, Faith Hill, Randy Travis and others.

“I am thrilled to be part of a new venture with Pat,” said Berg. “He has worked with me since I was 22 and I couldn’t imagine being anywhere else. A new adventure with SONGS is an exciting prospect, a new opportunity to build on what he has been so good at all these years”

Patrick Joseph Music and SONGS announced their partnership in 2012, when Higdon re-launched the publishing company.
