Nashville Hitmaker Hillary Lindsey Signs With Concord Music Publishing: Exclusive

Grammy and CMA Award-winning songwriter Hillary Lindsey has signed an exclusive, worldwide co-publishing deal with Concord Music Publishing.

Additionally, Concord has acquired an interest in Lindsey’s back catalog. Lindsey, who is also an Academy Award and Golden Globe-nominated writer, has co-penned such hits as Carrie Underwood’s “Jesus, Take the Wheel,” Little Big Town’s “Girl Crush,” and Keith Urban’s “Blue Ain’t Your Color,” as well as tunes for Luke Bryan, Florida Georgia Line, Tim McGraw, Lady A and Taylor Swift, among others. She is nominated for songwriter of the year at the Sept. 16 ACM Awards.

The multi-faceted deal also includes a creative venture to jointly sign and develop a new songwriting talent.

“As a Nashville-based publisher, we know how much talent there is in this city,” says Jake Wisely, Concord Music Publishing’s chief publishing executive. “Our partnership with Hillary is directly tied to our investment in Nashville and the roots we are laying down for the next generation of songwriters and music publishing executives.”

Concord Music Publishing’s strategy in further investing in Nashville extends to opening a live studio and mastering facility, in conjunction with Concord Recorded Music.

“I am so excited to be partnering with Concord and am so grateful for the opportunity to become a part of the family,” says Lindsey said in a statement. “I know how important it is to surround yourself with great collaborators and I have found that with the team at Concord. I’m looking forward to the next chapter in this musical journey.”

Lindsey’s musical scope extends far beyond country. She penned songs for Lady Gaga’s 2016 album, Joanne, including the single, “Million Reasons.” She also co-wrote songs on the soundtrack for A Star Is Born, including the film’s sweeping closing track, “I’ll Never Love Again,” which won the Grammy for best song written for visual media.

Concord’s senior VP of A&R, Brad Kennard, brought Lindsey to the company and will continue to oversee day-to-day creative with his Nashville-based team and colleagues in Concord’s other offices. Duff Berschback negotiated the deal for Concord, while Lindsey was represented by Derek Crownover at Loeb & Loeb in Nashville.
