Warner/Chappell Music has announced it has extended its worldwide publishing agreement with songwriter Nicolle Galyon.
Over the course of her career, Galyon’s songwriting credits have included Keith Urban’s No.1 hit We Were Us, as well as five songs on Miranda Lambert’s Grammy-winning album Platinum. Her most recent work includes Keith Urban’s Female and Coming Home, Lady Antebellum’s Heart Break, Kenny Chesney’s All the Pretty Girls, Lee Brice’s Boy, and Dan + Shay’s Tequila, plus Consequences by Camila Cabello.
Speaking about the agreement, Galyon said: “Warner took the chance and championed me ten years ago when I connected with BJ Hill. They fought the good fight with me as I grew up as a songwriter. Now I feel like we’re in constant celebration and it is so much fun to share these successes together. I’m so glad we’ve continued to take the chance on each other all these years, and I’m excited to share both a wonderful history and shining future with the same company."
Ben Vaughn, president of Warner/Chappell Nashville added: “Nicolle is one of the most talented individuals to grace Music Row. Her command of lyric and melody has propelled her to be recognized as someone that has true commerciality and depth in every writing session. There is no limit to the places she can continue to grow in this industry as a songwriter, vocalist, producer, mentor, and collaborator. Everyone in the Warner/Chappell family is proud to continue a relationship with a friend and partner like Nicolle.”
Galyon starred in Music Week's recent Nashville special issue, revealing how the city had become the songwriting capital of the world.
“Nashville is the place to be for a songwriter,” she said. “Of all the music hubs in the United States, it honours the song first. In Nashville they say, ‘It all begins with the song’ and the whole ecosystem of the music business here really revolves around songwriting.”
