Endurance Music Group and Warner Chappell Nashville have partnered on a worldwide publishing agreement with acclaimed songwriter Travis Hill, known professionally by his pen name Scooter Carusoe.
Carusoe has lived and worked in the Nashville music community for over two decades. Among his over 20 No. 1 hits are Darius Rucker’s “For the First Time,” Brett Eldredge‘s “Wanna Be That Song” and “Mean to Me,” and Kenny Chesney‘s “Better as a Memory” and “Anything but Mine.” His recent successes include “You All Over Me” from Fearless (Taylor’s Version) by Taylor Swift, “Want That Back” by Eldredge, and “Some Habits” by Cole Swindell.
Carusoe’s songs have been performed on the Grammys, the CMA Awards, and the ACM Awards, and have earned multiple NSAI, ASCAP, and SESAC awards. He also is the co-founder of independent music publisher Carnival Music.
EMG President, Michael Martin, shares, “One of the standout reasons I left ASCAP a few years ago to start EMG was the opportunity to work with Travis. I’ve been fortunate to walk with him on his journey from A&R to publishing and to witness his impact as a writer and lyricist on our music community. The entire EMG family loves working with Scooter, and we’re thrilled to enter this new and exciting season with the Warner Chappell team.”
Warner Chappell Nashville Vice President of A&R, Ryan Beuschel, adds, “I’ve been a huge fan of Scooter’s since 2005 when I first heard his self-penned mega-hit, ‘Anything But Mine.’ I’ve always admired his ability to paint pictures with poignant lyrics and stories that make the listener feel like they’re watching a music video unfold in their mind. It’s a dream come true to have Scooter in the Warner Chappell family!”
