To what extent/degree are your writers working on projects outside of the country genre?
Whether it’s Meghan Trainor, Maren Morris, Josh Kear or Daniel Tashian, we are always participating in a variety of genres. Our writers also reach outside of the U.S. to collaborate as artists, vocalists and writers. The South has always been a fertile ground for great music of all kinds, and Nashville has grown into the hub.
