Big Deal Music and BMG Chrysalis US have signed Country songwriter Tim James to a worldwide publishing agreement under their joint venture.

Kos Weaver, EVP of BMG Chrysalis Nashville, said, “Tim is an extraordinary talent and a highly respected songwriter that I have been fortunate to work with in the past. We at BMG are proud to be his new publishing partner along with Big Deal and expand upon his already impressive catalog with many more hits.”

Dale Bobo at Big Deal Music added, “Tim James is an accomplished, often awarded songwriter who has the enthusiasm of a guy just arriving on Music Row. Tim, Kos Weaver and I worked together a few years ago and it was awesome. I’m tremendously excited about supporting Tim again with our new teams.”

James summed, “I’m pumped to be working again with Kos and Dale. They are two of my favorite people and two of the most respected names in music publishing. The dedicated BMG and Big Deal executives together make a formidable team. I look forward to much success.”
