Kyle Coulahan has signed a publishing deal with Big Yellow Dog Music.

A Florida native, Coulahan got an introduction to Nashville from producer Chips Moman, who took him under his wing and showed him around Music City. Since then, he has spent time honing his songwriting craft and has written songs with Bobby Pinson, Clint Daniels, and others. He is working on new music for release in 2023.

“When I heard Kyle Coulahan’s voice singing the hits he walked in with, I knew immediately we had a ringer,” says Big Yellow Dog Music co-owner and CEO Carla Wallace. “His work ethic and charm are a nice addition to the hits. Thanks to Jacee Badauex for bringing this one to Big Yellow Dog.”

Renowned songwriter Liz Rose has renewed her global publishing deal with Warner Chappell Music.

The Grammy, CMA, ACM, and SESAC Songwriter of the Year recipient is one of the first two songwriters to be inducted into the National Music Publishers’ Association, and was recently nominated for the Songwriters Hall of Fame. Rose also received the 2012 ACM Award for Song of the Year for Eli Young Band’s “Crazy Girl,” and in 2015, won Song Of The Year at the CMA Awards and the Grammy for Best Country Song for writing “Girl Crush” by Little Big Town.

Rose moved to Nashville in the mid ’90s and began writing songs at the age of 37. One of her first cuts was for Gary Allan, “Songs About Rain,” which became a top 20 country hit. She soon became a frequent collaborator to Taylor Swift, co-writing 16 songs with the superstar, including the No. 1 crossover hits “Teardrops on My Guitar;” “You Belong With Me,” which won the 2010 BMI Award for Song of the Year; “Tim McGraw;” “White Horse,” which won the 2010 Grammy Award for Best Country Song; and “All Too Well,” among others.

In the midst of a career telling other people’s stories, Rose debuted an album of her own life story, Swimming Alone, in 2016. She serves on the board of directors for the CMA and Nashville Songwriters Association International. A successful publisher, she launched Liz Rose Music with her son, Scott Ponce, in 2010 as a home for burgeoning songwriters.
