Songwriter Marv Green, who has penned hits including George Strait’s “It Just Comes Natural,” Carrie Underwood’s “Wasted,” and Lonestar’s “Amazed,” has inked a global publishing deal with Sony/ATV Music Publishing Nashville.
Sony/ATV Nashville CEO Rusty Gaston said, “Championing the songs of Marv Green is a true honor— he has crafted timeless hits that capture the heart and soul of country music. The way he weaves his West Coast cool into every one of his songs makes each single a notch above the rest. We couldn’t be more thrilled to welcome Marv to our Sony/ATV Nashville family.”
Green said, “I’m beyond excited to start a new catalog of songs with Sony/ATV and their inspiring creative team.”
Green moved from Southern California to Nashville in 1993 and built a song catalog that includes Tim McGraw’s “Shotgun Rider,” Rodney Atkins’s “Farmer’s Daughter,” Brooks & Dunn’s “Proud of the House We Built,” Eric Church’s “Creepin’,” the Merle Haggard/Willie Nelson collaboration “Live This Long,” Chris Young’s “Who I Am With You,” and the eight-week No. 1 hit “Amazed,” recorded by Lonestar.
Green currently has a Top 10 hit with Tim McGraw’s “I Called Mama.”
Along the way, Green has earned BMI’s Song Of The Year in 2000, BMI’s Songwriter Of The Year in 2001, as well as an ACM Song Of The Year and Grammy nomination for “Amazed.”
