Warner/Chappell Music and THiS Music have extended their worldwide co-publishing agreement with hit songwriter Marv Green.

One of Nashville’s most sought-after writers, Green has had his songs recorded by countless artists, including George Strait, Reba McEntire, Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard, Tim McGraw and Blake Shelton, among many others.

Green said, “I have had such a long, prolific history with my Warner/Chappell and THiS Music family. At this point, I can’t imagine working with anyone else. We’ve accomplished so much together, and we plan to do a whole lot more.”

Ben Vaughn, Executive Vice President, Warner/Chappell Music Nashville, said, “Marv Green is a musical chameleon—he can write any type of chart-topping hit. It’s a great pleasure working with Marv and we look forward to more success together.”

Rusty Gaston, General Manager and Partner, THiS Music, said, “Marv is a true song craftsman. He never backs down for a good idea and is willing to work hard until he gets it right. It’s an honor to represent someone with his work ethic and talent.”

Green scored his first hit in 1998 with Strait’s No. 1 song “True.” The following year Green hit his second No. 1 with Lonestar’s “Amazed,” which spent a record-breaking eight weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Country Chart and earned Green a number of accolades including BMI Song of the Year, BMI Songwriter of the Year, and ACM Song of the Year, as well as a Grammy nomination.

Other No. 1 hits of Green’s include “Wasted,” (Carrie Underwood), “It Just Comes Natural” (George Strait), “Consider Me Gone,” (Reba McEntire), “Who I Am With You” (Chris Young) and “Shotgun Rider,” recorded by Tim McGraw.

Green has also written a number of top five singles including “Proud Of The House We Built” (Brooks & Dunn), “Farmer’s Daughter” (Rodney Atkins), “Let’s Make Love” (Tim and Faith) and “Creepin’” (Eric Church).

Additional recordings include songs by Dierks Bentley, Dustin Lynch, Jewel, Billy Currington, Faith Hill, Kenny Chesney, Bon Jovi, Mark Chesnutt, Jo Dee Messina, Lee Ann Womack, Sara Evans, Martina McBride, Brad Paisley and Joe Diffie.

Marv Green is represented by attorney Chip Petree at Ritholz Levy.
