BIG MACHINE MUSIC SIGNS HURD
3/19/20

Big Machine Music (BMM) has signed RCA recording artist Ryan Hurd to an exclusive songwriting agreement, and has acquired his Lake Allegan Pub Club (ASCAP) and Hurdjamz (BMI) music publishing catalogs. The catalogs include hit songs recorded by Lady Antebellum (“What If I Never Get Over You,” “You Look Good”), Luke Bryan (“Sunrise Sunburn Sunset Repeat”), Diplo (“Heartless” ft. Julia Michaels and Morgan Wallen) and wife Maren Morris (“I Wish I Was,” “All My Favorite People”), as well as his own “Diamonds or Twine” and Gold-certified Top 20 hit “To A T.”  

BMM GM Mike Molinar commented, “Ryan is a dynamic artist and songwriter with a high trajectory and boundless future. The power of his music translates through both his voice and his writing. Big Machine Music is proud to become the steward of his catalog and advocate for his songwriting career.”  

Hurd joins BMM’s roster, which includes Brett Young, Brandy Clark, Laura Veltz, Jessie Jo Dillon, Eric Paslay and more.  

“I love being a songwriter in Nashville. Over the last few years, I have gotten to know Mike Molinar and Alex Heddle on a personal and professional level. They treat songs and songwriters with amazing care and excitement, and I’m so happy to begin a new chapter with the entire publishing team at Big Machine Music,” shared Hurd.
