The writers love him and so does the Nashville community. He’s always been a team player and I’m excited for this next chapter in his career—it’s well deserved.”

“It’s such an honor to work alongside Katie, [Dr.] Luke, and the entire Rx Songs team every day,” Conant adds. “The roster and staff here are truly the gold standard when it comes to music publishing! I’m thrilled to continue our working relationship in this newly elevated role.”
