Relative Music Group, in partnership with Sony Music Publishing, have signed country songwriter Nick Donley to a worldwide publishing agreement.
Originally from Ohio, Donley began writing songs in college and started his career writing commercials for radio. He moved to Nashville in 2006 to pursue his career as a professional songwriter.
Since then Donley has written popular songs including “Sittin’ Pretty” by Florida Georgia Line; “Unapologetically Country” and “4×4” by Hardy; “That Ain’t Me No More” by Matt Stell; “Mama Got The Chair” by Chevel Shepherd; and many more.
“We’ve been wanting to work with Nick for quite a while now, and I am so excited it finally happened. Nick is a perfect fit for Relative—he brings great ideas and a work ethic that won’t quit, and he is a great hang. We have an amazing team between Relative and our Sony Family and we can’t wait to get to work,” says Founder of Relative Music Group, Dennis Matkosky.
Relative Music Group Partner, Hardy, adds: “I’m so excited to start working with Nick Donley. I’ve heard and have been a fan of his songs for a long time and I’m happy that he is finally a part of this team. Nick is a hardworking, positive guy with a ‘go get it’ attitude, which is exactly what we need here at Relative. Nick is also one of the first people I ever met in this town, and after 11 years, I’m proud to see such a full circle moment come together. Welcome to the family, Nick.”
Donley sums, “Relative Music is a small family with a big vision and I’m grateful to call it my songwriting home. I couldn’t be more excited to work with this driven creative tight-knit group of people.”
