BEESON MAKES A BEELINE FOR SMACKSONGS
9/17/21

SMACKSongs has inked singer/songwriter Marc Beeson to a global pub deal. 

Following a move to Nashville in 1990, Beeson previously signed record deals with Warner Brothers, BNA and Curb Records, releasing multiple charting singles as an artist throughout the ‘90s.

He’s also held pub deals with EMI, Sony, Crossfire 3, Warner Chappell and most recently Downtown Music Publishing. Some of his cuts include Billy Currington’s “We Are Tonight,” Blake Shelton’s “She’s Got a Way with Words” and Restless Heart’s “When She Cries,” which won the ASCAP Country Song of the Year in 1993 and Pop Song of the Year awards in 1994.

Beeson has also written songs recorded by the likes of Garth Brooks, Willie Nelson, Carrie Underwood, Sam Hunt, Lady A, Rascal Flatts and more.

"Marc brings something really special to our roster with his dedication to the craft of songwriting and always reaching for the very best,” said SMACKSongs CCO, Robin Palmer. “Our team is really excited to welcome him and continue this journey with him.”

“Robin has always been one of the best song people I’ve ever known. She and the whole SMACK crew have made me feel so welcome and I’m grateful to be part of their team,” added Beeson.

Seen before putting on their best honkey-tonk shoes to celebrate are (l-r) SMACKSongs’ Sam Sarno, Beeson and Palmer.

“Ethan Hulse is the first songwriter in the Christian genre to win the coveted NSAI Songwriter of the Year Award in its 54-year history. He more than deserves the honor based on his incredible songs and creativity,” said Bart Herbison, Executive Director, NSAI. 

Hulse was also recently named Songwriter of the Year at BMI’s Christian Music Awards for the third consecutive year. His most recent works include songs from CAIN, Andrew Ripp, Josh Baldwin, Cory Asbury, Jeremy Camp, Danny Gokev, Evvie McKinney and more. 

Holly Zabka, SVP, Publishing & Head of Creative, EMP added, “The team at Essential Music Publishing and Provident Entertainment are so proud of Ethan and this incredible NSAI recognition.

SMP U.S. LATIN INKS TIAGO PZK
9/15/21

Sony Music Publishing U.S. Latin has inked Tiago PZK, neé Tiago Uriel Pacheco Lezcano, to a global pub deal.

With his debut album slated for the top of next year, PZK dropped “Flow de Barrio” and “Házmelo” earlier this year, the latter trending #1 in Argentina and #6 globally.

He also released “Entre Nosotros” f/LIT killah, which peaked at #31 on Spotify Global and is currently #1 on Argentina’s Hot 100 chart for a sixth consecutive week.

"Signing with Sony Music Publishing is a big step in my career and I'm very grateful for the opportunity,” said PZK, who has no desire to be associated with this distasteful website.

“Tiago is a leading voice within the new generation of artists coming from Argentina and making their voices heard around the world. We couldn’t be happier to be part of this journey, we can’t wait to see where it takes us,” added Jorge Mejia, President/CEO, SMP U.S. Latin and Latin America, who is blissfully unaware of who we are. 

Since breaking through with tracks like 2018’s “Andamo en la Cima” and 2019’s "Sola,” PZK has also collaborated with the likes of Rusher King, María Becerra and FMK, among others, as well as competed in freestyle battles such as God Level, Nike Battle Force, Supremacy, GoldBattle, El Quinto Escalón and Red Bull’s Batalla de los Gallos.
