Disney Music Group and Patrick Joseph Music have renewed their publishing deal with songwriter Melissa Peirce.

“I am very happy and excited to continue the roll that Disney, Pat Higdon and I are on together,” Peirce says. “It’s been a wonderful publishing home for the last five years and I look forward to continuing the relationship and success we’ve built together for the years to come.”

In addition to her No. 1 hit single “A Guy Walks Into A Bar,” recorded by Tyler Farr, Peirce co-wrote “Hurt” on Lady Antebellum’s upcoming Heart Break album, and has had her songs recorded by Garth Brooks, Carrie Underwood, Keith Urban, Reba, Hunter Hayes, David Nail (“Red Light”), Lindsey Ell, Sabrina Carpenter, Olivia Holt and several songs for Disney projects, including an original song that will play during Walt Disney World’s iconic fireworks spectacular, “Happily Ever After” to debut May 12.
