Nashville-based singer-songwriter Maggie Rose has inked a joint-venture publishing agreement with Sea Gayle Music and Prescription Songs.

The deal marks the first joint venture between country powerhouse publisher Sea Gayle and the Nashville office of pop publishing company Prescription Songs. Sea Gayle was launched in 1999 by Brad Paisley, Frank Rogers and Chris DuBois. The company earned ASCAP Country Publisher of the Year honors in 2010 and 2011 and is known for country hits including Keith Urban’s “Blue Ain’t Your Color.”

Prescription Songs earned ASCAP’s Indie Publisher of the Year title from 2013-2015, with a catalog that includes Katy Perry’s “Teenage Dream,” “ET,” and “Dark Horse,” as well as Maroon 5’s “Sugar” and “Don’t Wanna Know,” among others.

“The forward thinking of two very different, but reputable publishing companies and their willingness to partner together on my behalf has afforded me the absolute best fit I could ever find as a writer,” Rose says. “To me, it simply mirrors the exciting evolution of both my artistry and of Nashville as a whole. I’m grateful to be in an environment where my versatility as a songwriter is valued.”

Rose is managed by Narvel Blackstock and Austin Marshall at Starstruck Entertainment and is signed to CAA Nashville.

“Maggie is such an incredible talent! It’s impossible not to fall in love with her music and her artistry. We are ecstatic to be part of her team and, along with Prescription, to put our collective creative resources to work with her,” says Executive VP / GM of Sea Gayle Marc Driskill.

“Though pop music has been our main focus in Nashville, it has been so exciting starting to work with a writer like Maggie who can be put into any room we need her to be in. She is a perfect example of the evolving music scene occurring in Nashville. Getting to partner with a company like Sea Gayle, we feel our resources will be capitalized to the fullest for a writer like Maggie and we are so excited to have her as part of the family,” says Head of Prescription Nashville Katie Fagan.

“We’re very excited about this unique partnership as it will allow Maggie to continue to blur the lines between genres and push creative boundaries as a writer,” says Blackstock.
