Old Dominion lead singer Matthew Ramsey has signed a publishing deal with Warner/Chappell Music.
Ramsey, winner of the 2018 ASCAP Artist-Songwriter of the Year, has signed a worldwide agreement with Warner/Chappell.
He said: “Some of the people at Warner/Chappell are among the very first people I met when I moved to Nashville. We’ve sort of risen through the ranks together, but the opportunity to work directly with each other never quite lined up until now. I’m excited to work with a group of people that know how important songwriting is to me, and have cheered me on for over a decade.”
Ramsey has written nine No. 1 hits for Old Dominion and other artists, including Tim McGraw’s Kiss A Girl and Luke Bryan’s Kiss A Girl.
Old Dominion released their second album Happy Endings in 2017, with singles No Such Thing As A Broken Heart, Hotel Key and Written In The Sand both reaching No.1 in US country airplay. This year the band won the Academy of Country Music Award for New Vocal Duo or Group of the Year, the American Country Countdown Award for Breakthrough Group/Duo of the Year and the 2018 ACM Award for Vocal Group of the Year.
For the deal, Ramsey was represented by Morris Higham Management and Jess Rosen of Greenberg/Traurig.
