Big Machine Music (BMM) has extended its long-term, exclusive co-publishing agreements with chart-topping songwriters Laura Veltz, Jessie Jo Dillon and Maddie & Tae. The company is also celebrating its 11th anniversary.
“We’re ecstatic to celebrate 11 years of Big Machine Music with the continuation of our partnerships with Laura Veltz, Jessie Jo Dillon and Maddie & Tae,” says BMM’s General Manager, Mike Molinar. “We feel privileged to enjoy commercially successful and personal relationships with all four of these uniquely gifted songwriting talents. Their trust in us is truly a validation of our long-term vision and approach.”
Veltz, Billboard‘s 2022 Songwriter of the Year, has been with BMM for a decade. Since signing her deal in 2013, she has penned songs for Demi Lovato, Maren Morris, Idina Menzel, Miranda Lambert, Thomas Rhett, Kelly Clarkson, Monsta X, Kane Brown and more. Veltz has garnered four Grammy nominations, and was included in the Recording Academy’s inaugural class of nominees for Songwriter of the Year earlier this year. She took home both the 2020 ACM and CMA Awards for Song of the Year as well as the 2021 BMI Pop Song of the Year, for Morris’ chart-topping smash “‘The Bones.”
Dillon first signed to BMM in 2016. She co-wrote Dan + Shay and Justin Bieber’s global, crossover smash “10,000 Hours” as well as Cole Swindell’s Grammy-nominated No. 1 “Break Up in The End,” which earned her an ACM Awards Song of the Year nomination and NSAI Song of the Year. She is currently celebrating the rise of several tunes, including Old Dominion’s top 10-and-rising single “Memory Lane,” Catie Offerman’s debut single “I Just Killed A Man” and Megan Moroney’s critically-acclaimed “Girl in The Mirror.”
Maddie & Tae’s Maddie Font and Taylor Kerr have also been with BMM for a decade. The award-winning duo first topped the charts with their Platinum-certified debut “Girl In A Country Song.” They followed that up with top 10 Platinum “Fly” as well as Gold “Friends Don’t.” Maddie & Tae’s triple-Platinum No. 1 smash “Die From A Broken Heart” earned ASCAP Country and Pop Awards in 2022, and solidified them as the first and only female twosome to score multiple No. 1s on the Country Airplay chart.
