Creek Valley Music, a division of Kent Wells Productions, has signed songwriter Sarah Beth Terry to an exclusive global publishing agreement.

“Sarah Beth is one of the most gifted and prolific songwriters I’ve ever worked with – we’re very excited about having her as part of our team,” said Creek Valley Music owner and hit producer Kent Wells.

Terry was born and raised in Irvine, Kentucky, where she started writing songs at 12 years old. She relocated to Nashville after graduating from Transylvania University in Lexington, Kentucky, with a Bachelors in Music Education. In 2010, Terry relocated to Fort Polk, Louisiana, with her husband and, in 2013, opened Queen Bee & Co. Music Studio, a teaching studio specializing in guitar, piano, bass, drums, voice and songwriting instruction. She now splits her time between her homes in Louisiana, Nashville, and Milan, Italy.

“I’m honored to be working with the caliber of talent that is Kent Wells,” said Terry. “I’ve always felt right at home in Nashville and I’m thankful my songs now have such a great home at Creek Valley Music.”

Wells is known for his production work with Dolly Parton, and he has served as musical director for her recent tours. Wells has also toured and recorded with Reba, Kenny Rogers, Keith Whitley and the Oak Ridge Boys.
