Keesy Timmer has signed an exclusive publishing agreement with Nashville-based Average ZJS Music Publishing, a division of Average Joes Entertainment. Timmer’s signing marks the first time the company has signed a staff writer outside of the Average Joes Entertainment label roster.

Originally from Washington State, Timmer relocated to Nashville in 2004. A gifted storyteller, artist and writer, Timmer’s songwriting credits include co-writing Kelsea Ballerini’s gold-certified 2016 hit, “Yeah Boy,” which was released from Ballerini’s debut album, “The First Time,” and remained on the Top 40 charts for nine months.

“I’m beyond excited to have Keesy writing for Average ZJS Music Publishing,” said Noah Gordon, VP of Publishing/A&R for Average Joes Entertainment and AZJS Music Publishing. “Between Creative Director Rachel Owens’ passion for great songs and Keesy’s ability to deliver, I’m confident we’ll soon be toasting their successes!”

Average ZJS Music Publishing is home to Average Joes Entertainment co-founders Colt Ford and Shannon Houchins as well as Noah Gordon. The Average ZJS Music Publishing catalogue includes the Colt Ford co-written No. 1 smash hits, “Dirt Road Anthem” (Jason Aldean), and “Country Must Be Country Wide” (Brantley Gilbert), the platinum-certified single, “I Love You This Big,” recorded by Scotty McCreery and co-written by Jay Smith, “Party Up” recorded by Chase Rice, “River Bank (Remix)” recorded by Brad Paisley, Laura Bell Bundy’s “Two Step f/Colt Ford,” and “Lizard Lick,” featured on truTV.
