Songwriter Scooter Carusoe has extended his publishing contract with Carnival Music.
Carusoe co-wrote Brett Eldredge‘s hit song “Mean To Me,” and has co-penned chart-toppers including “Anything But Mine” and “Better As A Memory” (both recorded by Kenny Chesney).
He has also penned several songs for David Nail‘s albums I’m About to Come Alive, The Sound of a Million Dreams, and I’m A Fire, as well songs for Eli Young Band (“Guinevere”), Uncle Kracker (“Blue Skies”), and Casey James (“The Good Life”), among others.
“Writers, songs, and publishers don’t find their way to success by chance,” Carusoe says. “It is a collaborative effort that requires belief on all sides. That’s what I’ve found in my relationship with Carnival. We believe in a common goal, achieved by a unique sound.”
“Scooter is exactly the kind of writer Carnival exists to champion: brilliant, stubborn, and in constant pursuit of a sound that is entirely his own,” says Frank Liddell, Carnival Music Co-founder & Owner. “He’s a favorite writer of mine—I’d listen to him no matter who published his songs. But I couldn’t be prouder that it’s us.”
Born in North Carolina and raised in Knoxville, Tenn., Carusoe lives in Nashville with his wife and two sons.
