Zach Bryan has signed a global publishing deal with Warner Chappell Music. The Oklahoma singer-songwriter remains one of the most successful songwriters in today's industry, with Bryan having recently spent his 15th week atop MusicRow's Top Songwriters Chart.
Particularly given the fact that he pens virtually all of his songs by himself, including his monster hit, ‘Something in the Orange’, Bryan represents a highly valuable asset for Warner Chappell Music.
The firm is a subsidiary of Warner Records, as is Warner Music Nashville, Bryan's record label.
In a statement, Zach Bryan underlined how Warner Chappell Music has been supporting him since day one of his music journey, “I’d like to personally thank David and the team over at Warner Chappell.
I was just a confused kid in the Navy four years ago and they were the first people I talked to in the industry, literally”.
He went on to express his gratitude for Warner giving him the freedom to reject Nashville's preference for co-writes, “They never pushed a four-man writing team on me, they never asked me to do anything I didn’t want to do, they just believed in me.
I owe them more than just support, I owe them back the faith they had in me as a barely 23-year-old Oklahoma kid walking around New York like a sore thumb.”
In recent weeks, one of Bryan's most recognisable tracks to date, ‘Something in the Orange’, leapt to No. 1 on Billboard's Hot Rock and Alternative Songs Chart.
The vulnerable ballad still reigns over Billboard's Hot Country Songs Chart, with Bryan's most recent release, the haunting ‘Dawns’ with Maggie Rogers, currently sitting at No. 11.
