“I’m very excited to be a part of the Spirit Music family,” said Montana. “Daniel, Billy Lynn and the entire Nashville group are talented publishers who are all about the song, and Spirit’s worldwide reach is something to be excited about. The care and attention they give to me and my music is what I dreamed of finding in a publisher.”
