Warner/Chappell Music (WCM), the music publishing arm of Warner Music Group, has signed a worldwide co-publishing agreement with singer/songwriter David Cook. Following a successful run on the seventh season of American Idol, Cook’s self-titled, platinum-selling debut album reached No. 3 on the Billboard 200 and notched two Top 20 singles.
“I’m excited to get involved with Warner/Chappell and work with some of the best songwriters in the industry,” said Cook. “It’s an honor to be a part of the roster and I’m looking forward to furthering my songwriting career with them.”
Ben Vaughn, Executive Vice President, Warner/Chappell Music Nashville, said, “David brings so much to the table with his diversity as a songwriter and a voice that makes you stop and pay attention. We’re looking forward to supporting him as his career continues to grow.”
Cook’s second album, This Loud Morning, debuted in the top ten. In 2012, Cook relocated to Nashville, Tenn., where he is currently working on music for his new album. In addition to his own music, Cook recently co-wrote the 2014 top 20 country radio single “Kiss You Tonight,” recorded by David Nail.
