As part of an expansion into Country and Pop genres, WORD Music Publishing has signed Georgia native Brian Callihan to a worldwide publishing deal.

“I am extremely excited to have Brian as a part of our expanded writer roster,” said Janine Appleton, Creative Director (Country/Pop) for WORD Music Publishing. “His natural ability to write commercial radio songs is undeniable. There are many great things in store for this one and his future is extremely bright.”

One of Callihan’s first co-writing sessions after moving in July 2007 to pursue an artist career was with Cole Swindell.

Callihan joins WORD’s existing roster of Country writers, including Steven Dale Jones and Justin Ebach, as well as Hilary McBride and Brett Rutledge of Americana Duo Running Roots.
