Thomas Rhett has partnered with Jay Z's Roc Nation, his father, hit songwriter Rhett Akins, and his longtime manager, Virginia Davis, to form Home Team Publishing, a new publishing company in Nashville.
Thomas told Taste of Country, “Songwriting has been a huge part of my life for as long as I can remember. I was a songwriter before I was an artist, and I was lucky enough to find a team that believed in me really early on. Songwriting (is) the foundation for my artist career, so I’m excited and honored to be able to invest in the future of the songwriting community.”
Thomas' publishing will remain with his current publisher, EMI/Sony.
Home Team Publishing's first signed writer is Seattle native Eric Olson. His cuts include Kelly Clarkson‘s 2012 single “Catch My Breath.”
