Warner/Chappell Music (WCM), the global music publishing arm of Warner Music Group, along with Nashville-based music publishing company THiS Music, today announced that they have extended their worldwide co-publishing agreement with hit songwriter Ben Hayslip. Hayslip has twice been named ASCAP’s “Country Music Songwriter of the Year,” and twice been honored with the ASCAP Award for “Country Song of the Year” for Blake Shelton’s “Honey Bee” and Thomas Rhett’s “It Goes Like This.” Hayslip also wrote both George Strait’s and Dustin Lynch’s newly released singles.

“Over the years, I’ve built tremendous relationships with the teams at Warner/Chappell and THiS Music, and we’ve accomplished a lot together,” said Hayslip. “Support like theirs is invaluable and I look forward to working with them for many more years.”

“Ben Hayslip is one of the most driven songwriters I’ve ever had the opportunity of working with,” said Ben Vaughn, Executive Vice President, Warner/Chappell Music Nashville. “He was recently up for a single on a project, but the label decided to go another direction. Ben’s response was, ‘I’ll make my next song so undeniably good that they’ll have no choice but to put the song out.’ That attitude is exactly why he’s so successful. It’s such a pleasure to collaborate with him and the professionals at THiS Music”

“Ben’s desire for success is only outmatched by his unstoppable work ethic. He’s been on our team from day one and it’s an honor to continue to represent a man of his character and ability,” said Rusty Gaston, Partner/GM, THiS Music.

Hayslip has had his songs recorded by such renowned artists as Tim McGraw, Luke Bryan, Jason Aldean, Brantley Gilbert, Blake Shelton, Chris Young, Jake Owen, Martina McBride and Willie Nelson, among many others. Hayslip’s No. 1 hits include: Joe Nichols’ “Gimmie That Girl,” Josh Turner’s “All Over Me,” Blake Shelton’s “All About Tonight” and “Honey Bee,” Luke Bryan’s “I Don’t Want This Night to End,” Jason Aldean’s “The Only Way I Know” and “When She Says Baby,” Thomas Rhett’s “It Goes Like This,” Jake Owen’s “Anywhere With You,” and Justin Moore’s “Point At You.”

THiS Music was formed in 2006 by General Manager, Rusty Gaston and songwriters Tim Nichols and Connie Harrington, and launched in partnership with Warner/Chappell Music.
