SMACKSongs, led by songwriters Shane McAnally and Josh Osborne, has signed Kylie Morgan to a worldwide publishing agreement, exclusively administered by Kobalt.

“The first time I walked through the doors of SMACK, I knew I was home. I couldn’t be more thankful to the whole staff for being so loving and welcoming,” said Morgan. “To have someone like Shane McAnally believing in me is honestly an answered prayer. I have no doubt this is where I’m supposed to be and I’m so excited to start building this crazy dream with such amazing people.”

The Newcastle, Oklahoma native has been writing, singing and playing guitar since age 12, drawing national attention for her independently released music and role on E!’s Opening Act. At age 18, Morgan moved to Nashville to pursue her career as a singer/songwriter.

“Kylie is one of the most talented and hardworking young writers I’ve had the privilege to work with,” said Robin Palmer, senior vice president of creative at SMACKSongs. “We couldn’t be more excited to get started!”

“When we first heard Kylie’s music, we knew we had found another tremendous talent,” noted Kobalt Nashville General Manager Jesse Willoughby. “We’re beyond excited to be working with her and continuing our creative relationship with such an amazing company as SMACK.”

Morgan has spent the past three years with Zavitson Music and writing with songwriters Rivers Rutherford, Tony Haselden and Jim Collins.
