UMPG NASHVILLE LASSOS TURSI
10/7/19

UMPG Nashville announced 10/7 that Brad Tursi has been signed to a global co-pub deal for his future works. In addition, UMPG has acquired Tursi’s catalog of hit songs.

A gifted songwriter, artist and performer, Tursi is a member of Nashville stars Old Dominion (RCA Nashville), the reigning CMA and ACM vocal group of the year. Tursi has written nine Country Airplay #1 songs, including six OD chart-toppers: “No Such Thing as a Broken Heart”, “Written in the Sand”, “Make It Sweet”, and more. Tursi has also co-penned multiple Country  #1s for other major artists, including Luke Bryan’s “Light It Up” and Kenny Chesney’s “Save It for a Rainy Day.”

It's a big get for recently installed UMPG Nashville Chairman and CEO Troy Tomlinson, who said: “Signing Brad provides that unique opportunity to work with a hit songwriter who not only writes hits for Old Dominion, but also for other superstar artists. We are grateful for his trust in our team.” Troy joined Tursi and team for the joyful photo op above; seen shuddering at the songwriter's memory of Old Dominion's "party" at HITS HQ are (l-r) UMPG’s Ron Stuve, Tomlinson, Cyndi Forman, Tursi, Gordon, Missy Roberts and Terry Wakefield.

Said Tursi: “I’m so excited to work with a bunch of great folks that I’ve considered family for years. I am humbled and grateful to be part of the team.”

UMPG Nashville Senior A&R Director Travis Gordon said: “Brad is a songwriter’s songwriter, and we’re so proud to officially welcome him home as part of the Universal family.”

Seconds after posting this photo, attorney Jess Rosen sent us a cease and desist.

Old Dominion’s songs have amassed more than 1b streams. The band is currently headlining arenas and amphitheaters across the globe on their “Make It Sweet” tour. Their forthcoming, self-titled studio album is set for release on 10/25.
