The Warren Brothers–Brad Warren and Brett Warren–have signed a global publishing deal with Warner Chappell Music.

The Florida-native songwriting duo moved to Nashville in the mid-90s, signing a record deal with RCA Records and making three albums for RCA’s sister label BNA Records. During that time, they toured as the opening act for Tim McGraw and Faith Hill, among others. McGraw has recorded over 30 of the duo’s songs, and many of their songs have also landed on the Billboard charts.

The Warrens also starred as celebrity judges on the second season of Nashville Star, and had their own reality series, Barely Famous, The Warren Brothers. They have collaborated with Luke Bryan, Little Big Town, Lady A, Thomas Rhett, Cole Swindell, Gary Allan, Billy Currington, and many others.

Throughout their career the Warren’s have received Grammy and CMA nominations, in addition to winning a Daytime Emmy Award for co-writing the Good Afternoon America theme song with Little Big Town.

Their penned hits include Tim McGraw’s Platinum “Felt Good on My Lips” and the Gold single “If You’re Reading This,” Keith Urban’s Platinum “Little Bit of Everything,” Dierks Bentley’s Gold-certified “Feel That Fire,” Jason Aldean’s Gold “Lights Come On,” Blake Shelton’s Gold “Every Time I Hear That Song,” Chris Young’s Gold “Sober Saturday Night,” Toby Keith’s “Red Solo Cup,” and Faith Hill’s “The Lucky One,” among many others. They have also written songs for artists in other genres including Lynyrd Skynyrd, Nickelback, Hinder, Joss Stone, and Boys Like Girls.

Concord Music Publishing has signed Nashville-based singer-songwriter Colton Venner to his first ever publishing contract. The worldwide publishing agreement includes Venner’s full catalog and future works.

A Fort Worth, Texas native, Venner draws inspiration from the likes of Chris Knight and legends like Johnny Cash, harnessing attention to detail when playing out a story within his songs.

“Signing a publishing deal is a lifelong dream come true! However, signing with the Concord team is so much better than I could have ever hoped for or imagined. I’m so excited to see what’s next,” Venner shares.

In addition to his songwriting career, he also releases music independently. His breakout 2019 single “Honey Slow,” with over 1.5 million streams on Spotify alone, showcases his songwriting talents blending country and Americana for an acoustic-guitar driven sound.
