Ray Fulcher has signed an exclusive, worldwide publishing agreement with Universal Music Publishing Group and River House Artists.

Fulcher co-penned eight songs on Luke Combs’ debut album, including No. 1 single “When It Rains It Pours” and current single “Even Though I’m Leavin’.”  His own EP Somebody Like Me has racked up over 15 million streams since its June release.

“All you can ask for as a writer is a team and family who believe in your songs and share the same vision and work ethic,” said Fulcher. “Couldn’t have picked a better group of people for those things than Universal and River House Artists.”

“Our creative team has a deep respect and admiration for Ray’s talent and work ethic,” said Troy Tomlinson, Chairman and CEO of UMPG Nashville. “Lynn Oliver and her team at River House Artists have built a great foundation for Ray. This is going to be a fun ride and we look forward to delivering many creative opportunities.”

“Ray was the first songwriter to sign with me as a publisher and to trust in River House Artists as a publishing company,” said Lynn Oliver, founder and CEO, River House Artists. “I am so proud of the relationships he and I have built, and we are looking forward to growing with the team at Universal. They understand where we have come from and where we want to go with Ray and his future as a writer and recording artist.”
