Ashley Gorley‘s Tape Room Music has established a strategic partnership with Red Light Ventures and Firebird Music, with the two purchasing over 350 exploited songs from various Tape Room Publishing catalogs as part of the transaction. Included in the catalog sale are hits such as “Body Like A Back Road” by Sam Hunt, “Do I Make You Wanna” by Billy Currington, “Sunrise, Sunburn, Sunset” by Luke Bryan, “One Of Them Girls” by Lee Brice, “Thinking ‘Bout You” by Dustin Lynch featuring MacKenzie Porter and more.
Since Tape Room’s inception, the award-winning publisher has celebrated nearly 40 No.1 radio hits and earned three Grammy nominations, three CMA Song of the Year nominations and numerous ASCAP and BMI awards. Most recently, “Buy Dirt” won the 2022 CMA Song of the Year and Zach Crowell, Hunter Phelps and Ben Johnson received CMA Triple Play awards, a coveted honor awarded to songwriters for penning three No. 1 country songs in a twelve month period. Phelps celebrated his first nominations for Songwriter of the Year and Song of the Year with Hardy’s “Wait In The Truck” (featuring Lainey Wilson) at this year’s ACM Awards.
Going forward, the companies will work together to build on Tape Room’s success.
“We are thrilled to be partnering with two of the most successful, forward-thinking companies in our industry,” shares Blain Rhodes, President at Tape Room.
“We are excited to partner with Ashley and the world-class team at Tape Room,” adds Coran Capshaw, Founder at Red Light.
