Endurance Music Group Signs ASCAP Songwriter Ben Stoll

Endurance Music Group has signed ASCAP songwriter Ben Stoll to an exclusive worldwide publishing agreement. Stoll joins the growing roster of Endurance songwriters, which also includes fellow ASCAP hitmakers Scooter Carusoe (Chris Janson’s “Drunk Girl,” Darius Rucker’s “For the First Time”) and Clint Lagerberg (Keith Urban’s “Blue Ain’t Your Color,” Rascal Flatts’ “Here Comes Goodbye”), as well as emerging artist-writers Jake Rose and Ryan Plappert.

“Ben has the unique ability to steer a lyric to be incredibly memorable. He’s already begun paving his way through Nashville and we’re looking forward to continuing that journey with him,” say Josh Saxe, Endurance’s Senior Creative Director.

Stoll was born and raised in rural Minnesota, where he grew up hunting, fishing and playing various sports. While playing Division 1 basketball, he started to seriously consider trying his hand at songwriting. After working in the oil fields of North Dakota for a stint, Stoll packed up his Jeep and headed for Nashville. He has a knack for bringing fresh ideas and pointed lyrics into his co-writes.

Endurance Music Group also represents the catalogs of songwriters including Kevin Kadish (Meghan Trainor’s “All About That Bass,” Morgan Wallen’s “Whiskey Glasses”), Ross Copperman (Kenny Chesney’s “Tip Of My Tongue,” Brett Eldredge’s “Love Someone”), Hillary Lindsey (Little Big Town’s “Girl Crush,” Keith Urban’s “Blue Ain’t Your Color”), Extreme Writers Group (George Strait’s “I Saw God Today,” Heartland’s “I Loved Her First”) and Matt Jenkins (Florida Georgia Line’s “Confession,” Keith Urban’s “Cop Car”).
