Multi-Platinum selling artist Justin Moore and prominent independent music publisher Big Machine Music announced the extension of their long-term, exclusive music publishing agreement. As one of the founding artist-songwriters initially signed to Big Machine Music (then Super 98 Music), Moore has co-written five of his nine No. 1 songs as an artist. His most recent chart-topper “Why We Drink” marked Big Machine Music’s 35th No. 1 on country radio.
“Loyalty and friendship are things I learned to really value from my parents and hope my own kids appreciate,” says Moore. “These moments are another reminder of the people who have believed in me and continue to invest. Thank you, Mike and everyone at Big Machine Music as we create more stories through song.”
“Justin is part of the foundation of Big Machine Music. ‘Til My Last Day’ was the first No. 1 song in this catalog and I’m so excited and honored that he will continue to be a big part of our future,” says BMM General Manager Mike Molinar.
Moore was also recently recognized with four BMI Million-air Awards for a collection of songs he both wrote and recorded, including: “Til My Last Day,” “The Ones That Didn’t Make It Back Home,” “Lettin’ The Night Roll” and “Small Town USA.” Each accumulated over one million U.S. broadcast performances.
“Justin Moore has been a mainstay on country radio for the last 12 years. Millionaire certificates are such a huge milestone in the career of a songwriter and show the true reach and impact of a song in such a tangible way. We are thrilled to celebrate this accomplishment with Justin, who has been a BMI songwriter since 2013,” says BMI Executive Director, Creative—Nashville, Leslie Roberts.
“I can’t say it enough, but the team taking care of us and celebrating our music the way the fans do, I’m just really grateful,” says Moore.
