Curb | Word Music Publishing and Lee Brice’s Pump House Anthem Publishing have signed a joint publishing deal with songwriter David Tolliver.
The Kentucky native has had cuts by Tim McGraw, Chris Young, Brantley Gilbert, Jerrod Niemann, Wynonna & The Big Noise, Edwin McCain, Joe Diffie, Neal McCoy, and many others.
Tolliver broke into country music in 2007 as part of country-rock duo, Halfway To Hazard, with their debut Top 40 hit “Daisy.” That year, the duo hit the road opening for McGraw and Faith Hill on the “Soul2Soul Tour.” They later toured with McGraw and Jason Aldean on the “Live Your Voice Tour.”
“I have known David Tolliver since the early years and all I know is he works like no other, he cares, and he gets it done,” shares Brice. “So many intangibles separate him from so many other writers. From writing the lyrics, the guitar riffs or the melodies, he can sing it all and has every tool you could ever ask for in a writer. I am so looking forward to this new chapter.”
Curb | Word VP of Country Publishing Colt Murski says: “We are so excited to add David Tolliver to our roster of talented writers. Lee, David and I have been working together for so many years now and have always been close friends, which makes this partnership so awesome. I can’t wait to see all of the success that comes out of this team!”
“I’ve been working with the writers, artists, Colt and the publishing staff for so many years now that I’ve always felt like I was part of the family; now I really am,” adds Tolliver. “Being able to partner with my long-time friend, Lee Brice, is a blessing. I’m excited for all the opportunities that Lee and Curb can provide and I’m so happy to be a part of this team!”
