Universal Music Publishing Group (UMPG) has signed Catie Offerman to an exclusive publishing deal.

Based in Nashville, Offerman has written with Liz Rose, Natalie Hemby, Nicolle Galyon, Lucie Silvas, Jeremy Spillman, Brett James, Troy Verges, Chase McGill, Ryan Beaver and more. The New Braunfels, Texas native got her start as a fiddle player performing for artists all over the country.

“Most girls dream about their wedding day, but I always dreamed about the day I signed a publishing deal!” said Offerman. “I am so excited to be a part of the UMPG family. Universal is one of the most impactful companies in music. UMPG instantly felt like home to me, and I’m especially grateful to UMPG Nashville A&R Travis Gordon for ‘getting’ it! I love the whole team so much and can’t wait for this next chapter!”

“Catie’s songs captured all of us at UMPG after our first meeting. They draw you in and give a great definition of who she is a songwriter and artist. We’re beyond excited she chose UMPG to be her publishing home and look forward to delivering strong creative opportunities that support her journey as a songwriter,” said Kent Earls, UMPG Nashville Executive Vice President/General Manager.

Offerman is set to release new music in 2019. More information is available at catieofferman.com.
