Low Country Sound and Warner/Chappell Nashville have signed publishing agreements with songwriters Adam Hood, Charlie Pate and Aaron Raitiere.
Low Country Sound is the publishing venture jointly established by Warner/Chappell and Low Country Sound owner Dave Cobb in January. The songwriters will primarily work out of Nashville’s historic Studio A, which Cobb recently took up residence in.
“I’m very excited about Low Country Sound’s partnership with Warner/Chappell—we have a perfect alignment for honest songwriting,” said Cobb. “I think I’m lucky to have signed three of my favorite songwriters: Aaron Ratierre, Charlie Pate and Adam Hood. They appreciate country music and where it’s going, and they’re also a good bunch of folks to hang around with.”
Cobb added, “Charlie Pate is the epitome of good classic songwriting and he’s an encyclopedia of the history of country music, while Adam Hood is the embodiment of country and soul—he brings the Alabama feel to every lyric he writes—and Aaron Ratiere is a complete avant-garde artist in every sense; he paints songs.”
Hood has toured with the likes of Willie Nelson and Leon Russell, and has had his songs recorded by Little Big Town, David Nail, Josh Abbott Band, Lee Ann Womack and John Corbett, among others.
Pate is a former recording artist on Universal Records whose style has been compared to Hank Williams.
Raitiere, a collaborator of Miranda Lambert’s, is the recipient of numerous awards, including an Honorable Mention at the International Songwriting Competition for Roots/Americana Music for his song, “Leavin’ You for Me.”
Cobb has been recognized by the Americana Music Association as Producer of the Year (2014), and he received a Grammy nomination for Producer of the Year in recognition of his work on a number of albums, including Chris Stapleton’s Grammy, ACM, and CMA-winning Traveller and Jason Isbell’s Grammy-winning Something More Than Free. He has also produced albums for Sturgill Simpson, Jamey Johnson, Shooter Jennings, Waylon Jennings, Lake Street Dive, HoneyHoney, Houndmouth and Anderson East, among others.
