Universal Music Publishing Nashville has signed songwriter Adam James to an exclusive worldwide publishing agreement.
James has co-written songs recorded by Dierks Bentley, Zac Brown Band, The Cadillac Three, Charlie Worsham and Filmore. He co-wrote Kenny Chesney’s current single, “Knowing You,” which is climbing the country charts.
Ron Stuve, VP A&R, UMPG Nashville, says of James: “Adam is a dual threat – strong lyrically and melodically. He has a deep appreciation and reverence for the past, but he is completely focused on the future. Terry Wakefield and I, along with the entire UMPG team, are thrilled to represent him and his songs.”
James adds, “UMPG is one of the best buildings left on Music Row, filled with some of the best publishers to ever do it. I’m so excited to join forces with these folks and get to work!”
