SMACKSongs and Worktape Music have partnered to sign McCoy Moore to a worldwide publishing deal.
The Lakeland, Florida native moved to Nashville after graduating from high school to pursue songwriting. Moore spent his first few years in town playing as many writers’ rounds as possible, sharing original music and releasing songs independently as an artist. He has since has garnered cuts with artists such as Shane Profitt and Bryce Mauldin.
“McCoy is not only an incredible talent but a great person as well,” says Lee Krabel, VP of Publishing at SMACK. “From our first meeting with McCoy and Travis [Gordon] we knew we had to figure out a way to all work together. We are excited to see what he can accomplish!”
“The SMACK team is a proven developer of talent and their enthusiasm for McCoy and his songs has been truly palpable,” adds Worktape Music’s Gordon. “I’m thrilled to partner with them to help make McCoy’s dreams become reality.”
“I’m super thankful for Lee and Travis, and my whole SMACKSongs/Worktape family,” says Moore. “I couldn’t be more excited to write songs and be surrounded by hardworking people every day in this next chapter of my career. Every time you walk into the office, you can tell everyone is happy to be there and I feel that same way. I’m grateful for good folks believing in what I bring to the table, and I’m excited to get to work!”
