Red Street Records has launched its new publishing division, Red Street Publishing, with Kelley Lovelace as its flagship writer. The new publishing arm will be helmed by Kelly King, Senior Director of A&R, and Harrison Sokoloff, Director of Publishing and A&R.
Through its new go-forward deal with Lovelace, Red Street Publishing has also acquired songs from his hit-packed catalog. The Grammy-nominated writer has 17 No. 1s with cuts from Brad Paisley, Carrie Underwood, Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan, Kenny Chesney, Keith Urban, Rascal Flatts, Sheryl Crow and more.
“I’ve known Kelley for years. His talent, work ethic, and success, speaks for itself,” notes Owner/CEO Jay DeMarcus. “On top of it all, you won’t find a better human being. I’m proud to have him join our Red Street family.”
“As Red Street announces the launch of our new publishing division, I can’t imagine a better songwriter than Kelley Lovelace to help us get things started,” adds King. “Kelley is one of the most talented and respected songwriters in country music, and we could not be more excited about this partnership.”
“I couldn’t be more excited to enter into this creative journey with Red Street,” Lovelace shares. “Jay DeMarcus is a great leader with such a positive energy, and he has put together an incredible creative staff with the ever so talented Kelly King and Harrison Sokoloff. I’m more motivated than ever to create and see what we can build together.”
