Songwriter Kyle Coulahan has signed with Given Music Publishing.

“Kyle brings an unbridled passion and enthusiasm for songwriting that is only rivaled by his talent,” Given VP/GM Michael Hollandsworth said. “That coupled with his innate ability to maneuver himself into meaningful co-writing relationships bode well for a very bright future as a songwriter. We are extremely excited to have Kyle on the Given team and look forward to the unique sound he brings to our catalog.”

“I am so thankful to be a part of this great team here at Given Music,” Coulahan said. “I’ve been dreaming about being a Nashville songwriter since I was a kid. Michael Hollandsworth, Jenny Hall, Cindy Owen and Jim Kacmarcik are giving me a shot at doing what I love and I am blessed to have this opportunity.”

Coulahan grew up in the coastal town of Perdido Keys, Florida, and from a very young age had an interest in music, thanks to his Dad’s love of music and the gift of an old Alvarez guitar. As a teen, Coulahan would split his time between football practice and playing guitar in his church’s worship band. He was offered a full football scholarship to Auburn University and when he wasn’t playing football, he would make trips to Nashville to learn more about the music business and songwriting. He even befriended producer Chips Moman who introduced Coulahan to other writers. Following graduation, the aspiring songwriter packed his bags and made the permanent move to Nashville.
