Scooter Carusoe has signed a joint venture publishing deal with Rezonant Music Publishing and BMG. The companies have also purchased his recent catalog. 

Carusoe co-wrote Darius Rucker’s latest No. 1, “For the First Time,” as well as the Brett Eldredge chart toppers  “Wanna Be That Song” and “Mean To Me” and Kenny Chesney hits “Better As A Memory” and “Anything But Mine.” He has also had songs recorded by Jordan Davis, Dierks Bentley, Rascal Flatts, Chris Janson, Chris Young, Lady Antebellum, Sugarland, Eli Young Band and more.

“The opportunity to work with an elite lyricist like Scooter as well as Kos and his creative team at BMG was compelling for us at Rezonant,” said Tim Wipperman, Rezonant’s CEO and founding partner. “It’s a great combination.”

“Scooter is one of the best songwriters around, and in a lane all his own,” said Kos Weaver, BMG EVP Nashville. “We are thrilled to be representing him with Tim and Rezonant.”

“I am very proud to be part of the Rezonant team,” said Carusoe. “They are an exciting addition to the Nashville music community and the perfect partner for me as I start a new chapter in my career. The uniqueness of their model, which also allows us to partner with BMG, gives me a lot of support moving forward and a new energized spirit.”
