HoriPro has signed 12-time MusicRow All-Star Musician Awards Vocalist of the Year Wes Hightower to a publishing deal.

“We are so happy to welcome Wes back to our family. Some of my favorite songs in our catalog are Wes Hightower songs. And he is one of the most heard voices on projects today,” the company said in a statement.

Hightower, a Texas native, has long been one of Nashville’s most in-demand background vocalists. He has sung on more than 150 million records sold worldwide.

In recent years, Hightower has turned his focus more toward songwriting, with songs recorded by Gary Allan, Montgomery Gentry, Gene Watson, and Sammy Kershaw, among others.
