SONY/ATV PRAISES THE LAIRD
1/30/18

Luke Laird’s penned more hits than you’ve had hot dinners, including 23 Country #1s. His work’s flown up the charts for Luke Bryan, Eric Church, Kenny Chesney, Thomas Rhett, Blake Shelton, Little Big Town, Jon Pardi, Lady Antebellum and plenty more besides. Naturally, team Sony/ATV is pleased as punch to have secured him for a worldwide pub deal.

“It’s a rare occasion when a publisher is able to secure both the hit-driven catalog and the futures of a writer the quality of Luke Laird,” exulted SATV Nashville boss Troy Tomlinson. “We are grateful that he is entrusting his body of work with us and look forward to continuing success.”

Seen hoping a big ol’ truck comes and spirits us away are (front row, l-r) SATV Nashville’s Hannah Williams and Josh Van Valkenburg, Laird, Tomlinson; (back row) SATV’s Terry Wakefield, Dickinson Wright PLLC’s Dustin Kovacic, SATV’s Tom Luteran, Dickinson Wright PLLC’s Austen Adams and SATV’s Stephen Denninger and Dane Schmidt.
