Atlantic/Warner Music Nashville’s Hunter Hayes will join the panel of industry judges for American Songwriter‘s first ever publishing contract giveaway. “The Pub Deal” is a one of a kind contest that provides the winning songwriter with a year-long $20,000 publishing contract from HoriPro Entertainment Group, Inc.
“I signed my publishing deal with UMPG almost two years before signing with Atlantic Records. I believe it was the first major turning point in my career, giving me access to people like Cyndi Forman who could work with me on a daily basis to nurture my songwriting chops and set up co-writes with some of the best writers in the world. It’s an honor to play even a small part in helping someone find this kind of opportunity.” – Hunter Hayes
