Jamie Floyd has signed a worldwide publishing deal with Writer’s Den Music Group.

Floyd recently co-wrote the soundtrack to the Burt Reynolds film Dog Years. She is also a member of the duo Stranger Friends with John Martin, and the two are working on their debut album.

“Her work ethic and talent are unmatched. We are looking forward to trying to keep up with her,” says Bobby Rymer, Partner/GM, Writer’s Den Music Group.

“Over the years I have always admired Bobby and his big heart for songs,” says Floyd. “I ended up running into him while I was waiting tables at [Nashville restaurant] Lockland Table last winter and fatefully it led to our new partnership! I’d been working hard on my own and held out for the last few years looking for the right publisher. I feel fortunate to say I have found a home at Writer’s Den and am so grateful and excited for our future!”

Floyd spoke to MusicRow earlier this year about her work in the recent documentary The Last Songwriter, which premiered at the Nashville Film Festival in April. The documentary chronicles Floyd’s struggle to balance her creative pursuits as a Grammy-nominated songwriter with the necessity to make a living. At the time, Floyd said her (then unofficially announced) new deal made for a happy update to her story.

“A year ago we were in the thick of filming the restaurant scenes,” Floyd told MusicRow. “If you had told the girl mopping at the restaurant a year ago, that exactly a year later that would be completely taken out of the picture, I don’t know if I would have believed you. I am one of many songwriters that have this exact storyline. It’s meant to encourage my generation to not give up, if they know that this is what they are supposed to do.”
