Big Yellow Dog Music has signed songwriter and music industry professional Jim Beavers to its roster.

The former Capitol Records label executive’s nine No. 1 hits include “Drink a Beer” (Luke Bryan), “Watching Airplanes” (Gary Allan), “Why Don’t We Just Dance” (Josh Turner) and several by Dierks Bentley, among others. His compositions have received multiple CMA, ACM, BMI, and NSAI awards. Beavers serves on the board of both the CMA and NSAI and co-wrote the new Hootie & the Blowfish single, “Hold On,” with Chris Stapleton.

“I have been a fan of Jim since my college days when I would hoist up my red solo cup to ‘Red Solo Cup,’” says Big Yellow Dog Music Senior Creative Director Lauren Funk. “Little did I know back then that I’d get the chance to work with such a prolific hitmaker. His wit and ability to turn a phrase are what make his songs so special and unique. We couldn’t be more excited to partner with Jim and welcome him to the Big Yellow Dog team.”

“Simply put, no other publisher in Nashville can do what Big Yellow Dog does so well,” says Beavers. “I’m excited and proud to be associated with Lauren, Carla, Kerry and the entire Big Yellow Dog crew…and you can quote me on that.”
