Matt Jenkins has extended his global publishing deal with Warner Chappell Music (WCM) and Madfun Entertainment. WCM is also acquiring Jenkins’ music catalog as part of the deal.
A native Texan, Jenkins has penned multiple hits, including the Platinum track “Happy Anywhere” (Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani), and the triple-Platinum single “Buy Dirt” (Jordan Davis ft. Luke Bryan), which took home Song of the Year at the 2022 CMA Awards and Nashville Songwriter Awards.
In 2017, Jenkins received a CMA Triple Play Award for penning three No. 1 songs within a 12-month period: “Confession” (Florida Georgia Line), “Setting The World on Fire” (Kenny Chesney ft. P!nk) and “Song For Another Time” (Old Dominion). His other chart-topping hits include “Do I Make You Wanna” (Billy Currington), “Where It’s At” (Dustin Lynch) and “Cop Car” (Keith Urban). His songs have also appeared on ABC’s Nashville, and he’s collaborated with artists including Sam Hunt, Cole Swindell, Brett Young and Eli Young Band, among others.
“Matt has proven to be a songwriter who knows how to fish in the deep waters,” says Ben Vaughn, President & CEO, Warner Chappell Music Nashville. “He’s a respected songwriter across so many meaningful songs in country music. We’re excited to continue with him on his journey.”
“Working with Matt Jenkins is both fun and inspiring. He is such a great human and a lyrical poet. He knows how to craft the cool and commercial song, almost better than anyone I know,” adds Alicia Pruitt, Founder, Madfun Entertainment.
