Not only is Canaan an incredible songwriter and creative but also an amazing guy that I highly respect as we build the foundation and culture of HAYLO Music.”

“I feel fortunate to have this opportunity and couldn’t be more excited to join up with Tyler and the team,” shares Smith. “He’s been a career-long believer in the songs I write, and nothin’ fires me up more than knowing HAYLO is in my corner.”

“So many people around town know and love Trent, but not many know what an incredible songwriter he is,” says Emily Olson, Partner & Creative Director, Dream 3 Publishing. “He’s been quietly writing amazing songs and working at his craft over the years. We are so excited to help take him and his songs to the next level, and for him to be a part of the Nashville songwriting community.”

“It’s an honor to join the team at Dream 3. Not only do Greg [Hill]Laurel [Kittleson-Cobb] and Emily bring a wealth of experience from different facets of the industry, they’re also incredible people who have felt like family since our first meeting,” shares Fisher. “I want to thank them for believing in me and for the love and support they’ve shown my family and I since day one.”
