Milligan will work on production projects with the Southern Crossroads artists, while also writing spots for advertising and film/TV. Ray, Thompson and Davenport are currently working on new material to be released later this year.

Maggie Rose, a new Play It Again Music Publishing signee, became engaged to Play It Again Music Publishing‘s EVP Austin Marshall after he popped the question on March 21 at Maryland’s Bethesda Blues and Jazz Supper Club. Rose usually sings “River Road” with her bass player Tim Braisted. Rose recalls of the proposal:

“Right after I introduced [Tim], he stepped away from the mic and to my surprise Austin walked on stage and began singing with me. After the song was over he whispered something to me and got down on bended knee and asked me to marry him. I said yes, of course. I couldn’t have imagined a more beautiful moment and sharing it with everyone was such a blessing. My whole band was in on it. My sisters and parents were there ready to capture the moment and I was overwhelmed with love. Austin knows I live on stage and carefully chose a time and place that we’ll remember forever.”
