UMPG REELS IN CHESNEY
5/19/20

Kenny Chesney is reuniting with Troy Tomlinson, signing an exclusive global publishing agreement with Universal Music Publishing Group.

Tomlinson, UMPG Nashville’s Chairman and CEO, has known Chesney for more than 25 years. “I met Kenny when he was 24 years old. He played me 4 or 5 songs in my office on his guitar. I remember the vivid lyrics. I can still recite them today. We have enjoyed lots of success together and lots of fun times and lifelong memories. I am grateful to continue to represent him and his music and look forward to delivering outstanding opportunities through UMPG.”

The Blue Chair/Warner Music Nashville superstar said: "Troy Tomlinson has been part of my creative life since I was a young dreamer hoping to capture some life in songs. To be reunited with him, as well as to work with Jody Gerson and the entire team at Universal Music Publishing inspires me to keep reaching for those same dreams, seeking truly special songs as a writer and an artist blessed to bring other people's songs to the world, too."

Legal was handled by Jess Rosen of Greenberg Traurig, who allegedly wore a pinstripe suit but no shoes while preparing the documents.
