Sony/ATV Music Publishing Nashville has added songwriter/producer Jay Brunswick to its publishing roster.
The Pittsburgh native penned Brantley Gilbert’s new single “Hard Days,” which debuted at No. 37 on Billboard’s Hot Country Chart, and Reba McEntire’s latest single “Freedom.”
Sony/ATV Nashville CEO Rusty Gaston stated, “Jay Brunswick is an incredibly talented songwriter that continues to raise the bar for country music, and his career is just beginning to take off. Our entire team is thrilled to welcome Jay to the Sony/ATV family and to deliver the best opportunities for his songs.”
Brunswick said, “Sony/ATV has been nothing short of family to me over the last few years. Tom Luteran and I have been working to make this happen for some time now and the timing could not have been better. I have always wanted to write for both Sony/ATV and Rusty Gaston and now I have the chance to write for both under the same umbrella. I look forward to working with Tom and the rest of the powerhouse team at Sony/ATV and excited to see what the future holds for us all.”
Throughout his songwriting career, Brunswick has written top charting singles by prominent artists including “Beer Me” by Chris Janson, “Heartbreaker” and “American Nights” by Parmalee, “Everybody Lives” by Granger Smith, and “Always Been Me” and “You Ain’t Seen Country Yet” by Josh Thompson. He has also earned five Top 10 Canadian Chart hits such as Matt Lang’s “Water Down The Whiskey,” Jason Blaine’s “Born To Love,” and “What We Weren’t Looking For” by David James.
Recently, Brunswick has been working on several upcoming projects and is set to have songs recorded and released by Heath Sanders, Parmalee, and Jordan Rowe. He is also co-producing new music with rising country artists Patrick Murphy and Chancie Neal.
