MV2 Entertainment has signed writer Robert Arthur to a publishing deal. The South Carolina native spent years on the road playing guitar for Brad Paisley, Jeff Bates, Melody Crittenden and most recently The Henningsens, and has written for both EMI and indie publisher Baccerstick Music before coming to MV2.

Arthur has had numerous cuts by artists including Chris Young, Trace Adkins, and Paisley, including co-writing Paisley’s Grammy® nominated track “Playing with Fire.” Additionally, Arthur has experienced success in the Gospel genre including the CCM No. 1 “Please Come Back” with Michelle Tume and “Over The Cross” by Eighth Day.

“We are so excited about having Robert Arthur onboard with MV2,” said General Manager Tony Harrell. “He brings depth and experience as a writer as well as being a great musician.”

“I couldn’t be more proud and honored to be part of the MV2 family,” shared Arthur. “This is a great group of people, who all share my philosophies on life, family, business and music. I am confident that I will flourish and grow here as songwriter. I look forward to a long successful relationship with MV2.”
