US-based music rights company Round Hill Music has acquired the songs catalogue of Big Loud Shirt Industries, the music publishing company of country music songwriter Craig Wiseman, which owns the rights in songs made famous by the likes of Tim McGraw and Carrie Underwood.

Under the deal, Round Hill acquires the existing Big Loud Shirt catalogue, and will work in partnership with the company moving forward on signing new songwriting talent and publishing new songs.

Confirming the deal, Wiseman told reporters: “Our working with Round Hill has felt right from the very first meeting. [The management team] impressed us with their serious passion for creating a modern music company. We are happy to still be independent with our new Round Hill partners!”

It is this culture that has helped generate the unprecedented success the company has attained. It is a privilege and a thrill to be partnering with Craig and the entire Big Loud Shirt family”.
