Carlin Nashville has signed Nashville rock artist and songwriter Tim Carroll to a worldwide publishing agreement.

“Tim is as authentic as it gets. He is a true original and we are thrilled to add him to our roster,” states Jeff Gordon of Carlin Nashville.

“I am proud and excited to join the Carlin Nashville team as a songwriter,” says Carroll. “The company’s vast catalogue already contains some of the greatest music ever made, and I have seen the passion and commitment they bring to their present work.”

Carroll’s songs have been recorded by more than 50 bands and artists, including John Prine, Asleep At The Wheel, BR549, Robbie Fulks, Bobby Bare Jr., Sunny Sweeney, Kasey Chambers and Sonny Burgess.

Carroll began his career in the late ‘70s as the rhythm guitarist for Indiana punk band, The Gizmos. He went on to form alt-country band The Blue Chieftains in NYC in the ‘80s. The band released a vinyl 45 single in 1989, spawning Prine’s cover of the Carroll-penned B side “If I Could, Then I Would.”

Carroll moved to Nashville in 1993 and two years later landed on the cover of Billboard magazine in an article about Nashville’s burgeoning alt-country music scene. He was nominated for a Nashville Music Award for Best Unsigned Artist in 1996 before signing a record deal with Sire Records in 1997. Carroll has since released eight solo albums to wide acclaim.

His recordings have been featured in several major motion films. 1999 cult classics Drop Dead Gorgeous and Election include “A Girl That’s Hip” and “Find a Way to Win,” respectively. “What’ll We Do ’Til Then” appears in the 2011 comedy Peace, Love & Misunderstanding.

Carlin Nashville is the Nashville division of independent music publisher Carlin America. With offices in New York, London and Nashville, Carlin has one of the world’s largest catalogs of vintage and modern roots music. Notable catalogs include King Records, Starday Records, AC/DC, James Brown, Billie Holiday, George Jones, Stanley Brothers and many more.
