Grammy-nominated hit songwriter Lee Thomas Miller has signed an exclusive, worldwide publishing agreement with Universal Music Publishing Nashville.
The three-time Grammy nominee has written 18 Top 20 singles, 7 of which reached No. 1. He won both ACM and CMA Song of the Year awards for “In Color” recorded by Jamey Johnson, as well as NSAI and ASCAP Song of the Year awards for “You’re Gonna Miss This” recorded by Trace Adkins. Miller has also earned 13 BMI performance awards garnering in excess of 15 million spins.
Miller is a lobbyist for songwriters’ rights and is an active representative in Washington, DC. In 2015, he was presented with BMI’s inaugural Champions Award for his legislative efforts which ultimately contributed to the passing of the Music Modernization Act, changing the criteria for which songwriters are paid for use of their works in the digital era.
Ron Stuve, Vice President A&R, UMPG Nashville, said: “Lee Thomas Miller is a game changer. His talents and efforts make everyone around him better at their craft and better people. Terry Wakefield and I, along with the entire UMPG team, are beyond excited to represent his music.”
Miller commented: “It is an honor to partner with Universal Music Publishing for this exciting new chapter in my life and career. I am very impressed with their leadership and passion, and I am humbled by their enthusiastic interest in what I do. UMPG is greatly respected worldwide but more importantly, it is a Music Row staple and I am proud to be part of their family.”
