Warner Chappell Music Nashville and Madfun Music have signed a global co-publishing agreement with hitmaker Thomas Archer, co-writer of No. 1 songs including Jason Aldean’s current smash “Got What I Got,” and the Luke Combs hits “Lovin’ on You” and “Hurricane.”
Madfun Music is the new music publishing division of Madfun Entertainment, the full-service talent management company launched in 2018 by longtime publisher Alicia Pruitt in association with Red Light Management.
Pruitt says, “Thomas has the ability as a songwriter to make you believe he has lived every word he writes. That is what I love about his songwriting. With his work ethic and true love for music, I knew I wanted to work with him the first time we met. I’m thrilled to have him as part of this team and look forward to celebrating lots of wins together with my Warner Chappell family.”
Ben Vaughn, President & CEO, Warner Chappell Music Nashville adds, “Thomas is one of the hottest writers in Music City and we’re over the moon to be on his team. We’re also excited to keep growing with Alicia and adding even more good times to our shared successful history.”
Archer also co-wrote Walker Hayes’ “You Broke Up With Me,” which peaked at No. 10 on Billboard’s Country Airplay Chart. Archer has more than 60 cuts by other artists including Mitchell Tenpenny, Dustin Lynch, Jon Langston, Jordan Rager, Colt Ford, Waterloo Revival, and Payton Smith.
