OSBORNE TO BE WILD
1/9/19

Grammy-winning tunesmith Josh Osborne celebrates inking a pub deal with Sony/ATV by staging this vivid tableau with SVP Nashville A&R Josh Van Valkenburg and the pubco's Nashville Prexy/CEO, Troy Tomlinson. Osborne's penned some 40 singles, 14 of them #1s, including monsters for Sam Hunt, Kenny Chesney, Blake Shelton and Old Dominion. Later, the three penned a moving ode to Pappy Van Winkle.

"Seldom does a publisher get the opportunity to acquire such a hit-driven catalog and futures deal with a songwriter of Josh’s stature," said Tomlinson. "An added bonus is that Josh will maintain the successful relationship that he has had for years with his partners at SMACKSongs. Shane [McAnally], Michael [Baum], Josh and the entire SMACK team have built an impressive company. We are grateful to work with SMACKSongs on Josh’s behalf.”
