Music publishing company Tree Vibez Music spent the past week hosting invite-only creative summits for Nashville’s elite record companies, showcasing the next generation of work from TVM’s talent roster of hit-making tunesmiths.
For the second year in a row, major labels and their related publishing arms were invited by TVM founders and superstar duo Florida Georgia Line to sample the freshest songs from their team – as well as the freshest food-and-cocktail creations from Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley’s downtown Nashville entertainment destination, FGL House.
BBR Music Group/BMG helped kick off three days of music on Monday (3/12), with SONY Music Nashville joining in on Tuesday (3/13), and Big Machine Label Group wrapping things up on Wednesday (3/14). Each round highlighted the innovative brand of TVM songwriting, which has already made waves on the Country charts, and is poised to continue driving the format’s stylistic expansion.
TVM’s group of young staff writers includes proven hitmakers COREY CROWDER (Chris Young’s PLATINUM-certified #1s “I’m Comin’ Over” and “Think of You”), JORDAN SCHMIDT (Kane Brown featuring Lauren Alaina’s 2X PLATINUM-certified, #1 “What Ifs” up for ACM Vocal Event of the Year), and ACM New Female Vocalist nominee RAELYNN (PLATINUM-certified “God Made Girls”), as well as rising talents: JAMES McNAIR (co-published with SONY/ATV; recent song cuts by: Luke Combs, Scotty McCreery), CAMERON MONTGOMERY (co-published with BIG LOUD; recent song cuts by: Kane Brown, Ryan Follese), and DANIEL ROSS (co-published with BIG MACHINE; recent song cuts by: Morgan Wallen, RaeLynn).
The team currently has 13 new releases including Hunter Hayes, Scotty McCreery, Rodney Atkins, Jake Owen, RaeLynn, Mitchell Tenpenny, and Jason Aldean’s current Top 10 hit, “You Make It Easy” – and the firm is soon to have even more reason to celebrate. After recently leading TVM to its second year of hit-making success in 2017, General Manager LESLIE DiPIERO is being honored as one of MusicRow Magazine’s Rising Women on the Row during a special March 27 ceremony at Nashville’s Omni Hotel.
