Wixen Music Publishing has signed an administration and song placement agreement with John Prine, going into effect Friday (July 1).

The agreement includes all songs that Prine controls, including fan favorites like “Lake Marie,” “Unwed Fathers” and “One Red Rose.”

“John Prine is one of America’s great national treasures, and a songwriter’s songwriter,” said company president Randall Wixen. “It is with the greatest honor and respect that we begin our relationship with Mr. Prine and his family. To say that we are excited about working with one of our industry icons would be an understatement. We are eager to begin the process of seeking new uses for his songs.”

With an office in Los Angeles and a sister company, Wixen Music UK Ltd. in London, the companies administer the song catalogs of artists including the Doors, Neil Young, Tom Petty, The Black Keys, Andrew Bird, and Fitz & The Tantrums.
