Producer, musician, and songwriter Mickey Jack Cones has produced songs including Joe Nichols‘ “Sunny and 75” and “Yeah,” and Dustin Lynch‘s “Where It’s At (Yep Yep).” He’s also worked with Trace Adkins, Jeff Bates, Thompson Square, and more.
The multi-talented Cones has now joined Combustion Music, along with partner Atlas Music Publishing, under a long-term publishing agreement.
Combustion Music’s President, Chris Farren, says, “I have been a big fan of Mickey’s for some time. He is a triple threat as a musician, songwriter and producer, and is one of the hottest producers in Nashville. What the rest of the town may not know is that he is an equally good songwriter, and we plan on helping him grow that facet of his career. We couldn’t be more fired up.”
Cones will work with Combustion’s creative team (Chris van Belkom and Kenley Flynn) to seek out new opportunities, manage his calendar and pitch his songs.
In addition to his work as a musician, songwriter and producer, Cones owns Westwood Studios, a retreat-like recording studio in Nashville’s Berry Hill area.
Cones says, “I am beyond thrilled to be joining such a force of a team with Combustion and Atlas. They are, irrefutably, among the heaviest of hitters in the music publishing industry. Their proven hit making track record speaks for itself. Not to mention, it doesn’t get any better than this caliber of people. Creatively and personally, I couldn’t ask for a better partnership.”
