Marcus Hummon has signed an exclusive publishing deal with LBK Entertainment.

Hummon, a songwriter, recording artist, producer, studio musician, playwright and author, is also a 2019 Nashville Songwriter’s Hall of Fame inductee who has co-penned iconic hits like “Cowboy Take Me Away” and “Ready To Run” by The Dixie Chicks, “Born To Fly” by Sara Evans, “One Of These Days” by Tim McGraw, “Only Love” by Wynonna, “The Cheap Seats” by Alabama and many more.

“Bless The Broken Road” by Rascal Flatts earned Hummon a 2005 Grammy for Best Country Song, as well as NSAI Song of the Year. Hummon has written an opera (Surrender Road, staged by The Nashville Opera Company in 2005) and six musicals, three of which were featured as part of the New York New Musical Festival. He is currently in production of a new musical, American Prophet, anticipated to be staged this Fall. Hummon has also scored two films: Lost Boy Home and The Last Songwriter, a documentary that he co-produced.

CEO and majority owner of LBK Entertainment Carl Kornmeyer said, “We are honored to have Marcus join the team of amazing talent at LBK. His versatility as a songwriter and producer in all genres is remarkable and will be valuable to the continued growth of LBK and all our songwriters.”

“I am thrilled to have signed a deal with LBK Entertainment,” said Hummon. “For me, it’s both an exciting new venture, and also… a kind of coming home! I have worked with some of the team members before such as Tim Dubois, as I was a development artist on his original Arista Records roster and Debby Dill, pitched my first chart-topping song, ‘Only Love,’ to Wynonna Judd back in 1993. Although Carl Kornmeyer and I haven’t worked together in the past, I am well aware that he has a tremendous reputation in the business, and I am excited for the opportunity to work with the talented and very capable Mariah Topel who leads the creative team.”
