FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

June 19, 2007 - REX BENSON MUSIC GROUP [which is comprised of Rex Benson Music (BMI), Checks To Rex Music (ASCAP) and Rex Rocks (SESAC)] is pleased to announce its official signing with Los Angeles-based independent publisher PEN Music Group, Inc. for worldwide administration.

The REX BENSON MUSIC GROUP, founded and run by songwriter/publisher Rex Benson, represents songs recorded by Kenny Rogers (including his #1 hit ‘BUY ME A ROSE”), Garth Brooks, Luther Vandross, Tammy Wynette, Chris LeDoux and many others.

Rex says, “We delight in finding songs from sources outside the mainstream and then taking them directly to decision-makers. Ours is a slightly different approach but it offers the major music markets an opportunity to hear works not normally accessed.”

PEN Music Group, Inc., co-founded in 1994 by President Michael Eames, has steadily built its reputation as one of the premier independent boutique publishers through personal attention, efficient administration, and tremendous success in licensing music to films, TV shows and commercials. Artists that have recorded songs owned or controlled by PEN include Christina Aguilera, Faith Hill & Tim McGraw, Corinne Bailey Rae, Bonnie Raitt, Green Day, Macy Gray, RBD, Diamond Rio and Kenny Loggins among numerous others. PEN’s roster includes Grammy®, Emmy® and Oscar®-nominated writers such as Wendy Waldman, Amy Powers and Gwil Owen.

Eames says of the signing, “Rex is a consummate professional in all that he does. His access in Nashville and elsewhere is unparalleled and this signing makes great sense for both of us. As the music publishing business changes almost daily these days, Rex and I are committed to showing that success in music publishing ultimately only comes the old-fashioned way – from hard work.”
