Laura Veltz has signed a long-term extension of her publishing deal with Big Machine Music.

Veltz has achieved numerous milestones during her nearly eight-year tenure with the company, crafting six No. 1 hits: “What If I Never Get Over You” (Lady A), “The Bones“ and “I Could Use A Love Song” (Maren Morris), “Lonely Eyes” (Chris Young), “Drunk Last Night” (Eli Young Band) and “Speechless” (Dan + Shay), which earned her first Grammy Awards nomination for Best Country Song. “The Bones” continues to shatter the record for most consecutive weeks held by a solo female artist at 19 weeks-and-counting atop the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart, long after its multi-week reign on both Country and Hot AC radio.

Veltz’s current singles include Kelly Clarkson’s Hot AC hit “I Dare You,” which was translated into five different languages and features artists from across the globe, Morris’ “To Hell and Back,” The Voice winner Danielle Bradbery’s “Never Have I Ever” and an upcoming single from Lava/Republic Recording artist somegirlnamedanna. Her songs have also been recorded by Miranda Lambert, The Highwomen, Reba McEntire, Little Big Town, Dierks Bentley, Ryan Hurd, Brothers Osborne, Carly Pearce, Kane Brown and more.

“Laura is a rarity among rarities in terms of craft, commerciality and caring for her fellow humans,” said BMM General Manager Mike Molinar. “As we have seen multiple times now, her talents are boundless and translate across audiences. We feel privileged that we get to continue supporting her and her music for many years to come.”

She is currently nominated for three 2020 AIMP Nashville Awards including Songwriter of the Year, Song of the Year (“The Bones”) and Publisher’s Pick (“To Hell and Back”).

“Big Machine Music and Mike Molinar were both there for my first hit and I am so lucky to have had them in my corner ever since. I’m grateful and excited to partner up again for the next chapter of my life,” said Veltz.
