COMBUSTION MUSIC/NASHVILLE has announced a joint partnership with NEW WEST MUSIC PUBLISHING/LOS ANGELES. Under this new deal, NEW WEST will acquire a portion of the COMBUSTION MUSIC catalog and will extend COMBUSTION's creative opportunities in film & television, as well as in the Urban & Top 40 formats.
COMBUSTION's most recent #1 Country singles include BRAD PAISLEY's "Then," DARIUS RUCKER's "It Won't Be Like This For Long," CARRIE UNDERWOOD's "Just A Dream" and TRACE ADKINS' "You're Gonna Miss This."
COMBUSTION MUSIC Founder/President CHRIS FARREN said: "At COMBUSTION we have always strived to sign the very best and most focused songwriters available, regardless of their style or background. (NEW WEST President) CAMERON STRANG has always been an independent minded and forward thinking business man, and I am confident that together with NEW WEST we will meet the challenges of the new music business while creating as many opportunities for our writers and songs as possible.”
STRANG added: “CHRIS FARREN and his staff at COMBUSTION MUSIC have built an incredible company. They have a great eye for talent and an ability to develop songwriters that is second to none. COMBUSTION is a creative and dynamic company and we are thrilled to be able to work with them going forward. Nothing changes as far as creative operations for COMBUSTION or NEW WEST except they have a new partner in LA who can bring new opportunities in film, television, urban and pop and we have a new partner in NASHVILLE with a first rate creative team.”
