Nashville publishers Still Working Music and Kobalt have signed songwriter Gordie Sampson to an exclusive global publishing agreement.

Sampson’s hits include Carrie Underwood’s “Jesus, Take the Wheel,” Hunter Hayes’ “Storm Warning,” and Eric Paslay’s “Song About a Girl.” His songs have been recorded by Florida Georgia Line, Keith Urban, Rascal Flatts, Miranda Lambert, Blake Shelton and more.

Sampson moved to Nashville from his native Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, Canada, in 2005.

“Gordie Sampson is a perfect fit here at Still Working and we are equally excited about partnering with Kobalt to make this signing double sweet. Gordie brings a total pro writing ethic, immense talent, and spot-on sense of the song—there simply isn’t better. Welcome Gordie!” said Alex Orbison, President of Still Working Music.

“We’re incredibly excited to be partnering with Still Working and working with a writer of the caliber of Gordie Sampson. We’ve been a big fan of his for a long time and excited to be creatively working with Gordie and helping him build on his already successful career. Looking forward to what we can achieve together with the whole Still Working team—Alex, Chuck, Tommy and Chelsea,” said Jesse Willoughby, GM Kobalt, Nashville.

“I’ve been a huge fan of both companies ever since I landed in Nashville and it is truly a dream come true to now be a Still Working/Kobalt writer. Aside from being obvious world-class publishers they are genuine, passionate about music, and most importantly made up of great people. I feel extremely lucky to be part of the Still Working Music/Kobalt team and look forward to years of great music and shared successes,” Sampson said.
