Concord Music Publishing has announced the signing and catalog acquisition of multi-Platinum songwriter Josh Miller. The worldwide publishing deal covers Miller’s full catalog as well as his future works.
“We are beyond thrilled to have the opportunity to represent this incredible catalog, as well as work alongside Josh going forward,” says Brad Kennard, SVP A&R, Concord Music Publishing in Nashville. “He’s an incredibly respected craftsman, a driven competitor, and a first-class human being. We could not be more fired up!”
A Jackson, Tennessee native, Miller signed his first publishing deal in 2016 with Cornman Music via Warner Chappell. His first country radio hit came in 2017 with Kip Moore‘s “More Girls Like You.” Later that year Miller collaborated with Bebe Rexha and Florida Georgia Line on the RIAA Diamond certified single “Meant To Be.”
Miller has continued to climb the country charts in recent years with additional hit songs, including Florida Georgia Line’s “Long Live,” Carrie Underwood’s “Southbound,” Thomas Rhett’s “Be A Light,” and Chris Lane’s “Take Back Home Girl” ft. Tori Kelly. He has also been nominated for MusicRow’s Breakthrough Songwriter of the Year Award and Spotify’s Secret Genius: Country Songwriter of the Year Award in 2018.
“I’m really excited and thankful to be a new member of the Concord family,” Miller states.” Brad and his team’s energy, passion, and love of songs is infectious and has me fired up to keep doing what I love to do!”
“It is such an honor to work with a brilliant songwriter like Josh Miller,” adds Jim Selby, Chief Publishing Executive at Concord. “Josh has already seen so much success in the country genre, and we are thrilled to add him to our growing roster in Nashville and help nurture his talents to take him even further.”
The dual agreement was negotiated on behalf of Concord by Duff Berschback, EVP of Legal and Business Affairs, with Miller represented by Scott Safford of Safford Motley PLC in Nashville.
