Concord Music has signed songwriter and producer Blair Daly. Daly’s hits include “Smile” (recorded by Uncle Kracker), “People Like Us” (Kelly Clarkson), and “Stand” (Rascal Flatts). Daly has also had songs recorded by Carrie Underwood, Tim McGraw, and more.

Publishing company Razor & Tie was fully acquired by Concord Music, and has rebranded. Concord Music VP of Creative, Brad Kennard, said of signing Daly, “Blair is the consummate pro in any room, writing for any genre. He has the fiercest passion for writing hits across the musical spectrum and a focus that is unparalleled. On top of that, he’s one of the most genuine, kind people I’ve known. We couldn’t be more proud to get to work with him.”

“I try to find a unique idea and pull something out of the artist that really means something to them, versus just writing a song that sounds like a hit,” said Daly. “The most important thing to me is that they want to come back and they have a good time doing it.”
