Starstruck Writers Group has re-opened its doors in Nashville. The company is currently helmed by Jimmy Metts, who has previously worked with Famous Music, Curb Music, Malaco Music, Stroudavarious Records, and Cauley Music Publishing.

A successful independent music publisher, Starstruck Writers Group was sold to Warner/Chappell in 2000 and has since been inactive. Starstruck Entertainment chief operating officer Cliff Williamson explains, “It’s time to do it again. There’s a spot waiting for an indie publisher making great music. For months we’ve been laying the foundation gathering a group of special writers.”

The group’s writers include Alex Kline (formerly of the Lunabelles, produced Erin Enderlin’s most recent project), Caroline Kole (Starstruck Records artist, currently on tour with Reba), Julie Forester, Kellys Collins (“Goodbye Looks Good On Me,” recorded as Reba’s Malibu Country theme song), and John Milstead.

Most notably, Starstruck Writers Group includes veterans Liz Hengber (“For My Broken Heart,” “And Still,” “It’s Your Call,” all recorded by Reba, and “She’s More,” recorded by Andy Griggs) and Will Robinson (“There’s No Way” by Alabama, “I Know How He Feels” by Reba, “What I’d Say” by Earl Thomas Conley).
