Music publishing company Little Extra Music, founded by Lisa Ramsey Perkins, has signed an agreement to represent the select back catalogs of songwriters Jessi Alexander and Jim McCormick.
Alexander’s recent co-written hits include Blake Shelton‘s “Drink On It” and “Mine Would Be You,” Lee Brice‘s “I Drive Your Truck,” and Eric Paslay‘s “Song About A Girl,” among others. “I Drive Your Truck” earned Alexander MusicRow‘s Song of the Year title in 2013, as well as Song of the Year honors from the ACM, CMA and NSAI. Her song “Didn’t Know Love” was recently recorded by Celine Dion.
“I had the good fortune of signing Jessi to Disney Publishing in 2006, and we enjoyed some great success together beginning with ‘The Climb,'” Ramsey Perkins said. “She’s gone on to write some amazing hit songs and win a lot of awards, I now have the honor of working with her and representing her catalog. I know there are a lot more hits to come from the wealth of great music she’s written!”
McCormick’s catalog of songs includes recordings by Tim McGraw, Trace Adkins, Randy Travis, Trisha Yearwood, Jamey Johnson, Ronnie Milsap and others. Recent recordings include Jason Aldean‘s rendering of McCormick’s “Take a Little Ride” and Brantley Gilbert‘s cut of his “You Don’t Know Her Like I Do.” Luke Bryan recorded three of McCormick’s songs on his Spring Break…Here to Party album.
“I’ve been a huge fan of Jim McCormick for a long time,” Ramsey Perkins said. “So getting my hands on his music and having the opportunity to pitch his back catalog is again, just a great blessing. I’m grateful these two amazing writers have trusted me with their music, and look forward to getting it out there to the masses!!”
Additionally, McCormick is signed to BMG Chrysalis.
