Country songwriter Luke Laird has signed a new worldwide publishing deal with Sony/ATV. He will also continue to work with his own publishing company, Creative Nation.

“It’s a rare occasion when a publisher is able to secure both the hit-driven catalogue and the futures of a writer the quality of Luke Laird”, says Sony/ATV Nashville President/CEO Troy Tomlinson. “We are grateful that he is entrusting his body of work with us and look forward to continuing success”.

Laird himself adds: “I’m looking forward to working with Troy, Josh Van Valkenburg and the entire Sony/ATV team. They have a great history of working with songwriters who are heroes of mine and they will be the perfect complement to my team at Creative Nation”.

With 23 US number one singles to his name, Laird has written songs for artists including Lady Antebellum, Little Big Town, Brad Paisley, Kenny Chesney and Eric Church.
