Thomas Rhett has signed an exclusive worldwide publishing deal with Warner Chappell Music Nashville. The multi-Platinum singer-songwriter was most recently signed to Sony/ATV.
Thomas Rhett is the reigning ACM Awards Male Artist of The Year and current 5-time nominee. He has charted 15 No. 1 songs, while his most recent single “Beer Can’t Fix” marks his ninth consecutive No. 1, breaking the Billboard Country Airplay Chart record for most consecutive chart-toppers.
“It’s really cool to join Warner Chappell Music and be reunited with Ben Vaughn,” Rhett said. “Ben has been incredibly instrumental in my career from the very beginning, starting with signing me to my first publishing deal in college. I’ll never forget playing ‘Beer with Jesus’ for him right after I wrote it and him being the biggest supporter. He’s truly one of the most innovative and hardest working guys I’ve ever had the honor to work with, and I am looking forward to this new chapter together.”
“Thomas Rhett is an all-around force in music,” said Ben Vaughn, President & CEO, Warner Chappell Nashville. “He can put on one of the most unforgettable, energetic live shows you’ve ever seen, and then hop right off stage and write the next great song. Aside from being an extraordinary artist, he is a man of great integrity who I’m grateful to have called a friend for many years. Everyone in Nashville can attest to his character; Thomas has invested his time in our community and contributed to the success of dozens of other artists. I know I speak for myself, Spencer (Nohe) and the entire WCM team when I say we’re honored to be on this journey with him.”
Thomas Rhett has earned two CMA Triple Play awards for penning three No. 1 songs within a 12-month period and was the most played artist on country radio in 2018. Along with writing and co-producing much of his own material, Thomas Rhett has written songs recorded by Jason Aldean (“I Ain’t Ready to Quit” and “1994”), Florida Georgia Line (“Round Here”), and Old Dominion (“Some People Do”), among others.
Most recently, Thomas Rhett enlisted the help of friends Reba McEntire, Hillary Scott, Chris Tomlin and Keith Urban for “Be A Light,” which is Top-5-and-climbing at country radio.
Thomas Rhett is managed by Virginia Bunetta of G Major Management, and was represented in the agreement by attorney Jess Rosen of Greenburg Trarig.
