Nashville publisher Still Working Music has signed songwriter Gordie Sampson to an exclusive global publishing agreement.

Sampson’s hits include Carrie Underwood’s “Jesus, Take the Wheel,” Hunter Hayes’ “Storm Warning,” and Eric Paslay’s “Song About a Girl.” His songs have been recorded by Florida Georgia Line, Keith Urban, Rascal Flatts, Miranda Lambert, Blake Shelton and more.

Sampson moved to Nashville from his native Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, Canada, in 2005.

“At Still Working Music we always strive to sign great and special writers. We also equally look for great and special people. With these criteria in mind, signing Gordie Sampson was one of the easiest decisions we’ve ever made — a simply wonderful addition to our team. Welcome Gordie and keep the goodness (and hits!) coming,” said Alex Orbison, President of Still Working Music.

“I’ve been a huge fan of this company ever since I landed in Nashville and it is truly a dream come true to now be a Still Working writer. Aside from being an obvious world-class publisher they are genuine, passionate about music, and most importantly made up of great people. I feel extremely lucky to be part of Still Working Music and look forward to years of great music and shared successes,” Sampson said.

Still Working Music was founded in 1990 by Barbara Orbison and is now run by her son, Alex. Its catalog includes hits by Taylor Swift, Blake Shelton, Tim McGraw, Brooks & Dunn, George Strait, and Lost Frequencies. Still Working Music’s extensive catalog also contains cuts by One Direction, Carrie Underwood, Dierks Bentley, Rascal Flatts, Easton Corbin, Reba McEntire, Martina McBride, Faith Hill, Celine Dion, and Joe Walsh.

Current Still Working Music writers are Tommy Lee James, Jon Randall, Ryan Lafferty, Chase Bryant, Derrick Southerland, Matt Nolen, Skip Black, and Alana Springsteen.
