Award-Winning Songwriter Gary Harrison Signs Global Long-Term Deal With Famous Music

Bookmark and Share

CMA Award-winning and Grammy-nominated hit songwriter Gary Harrison has signed a long-term global co-publishing agreement with Famous Music, the worldwide music publishing division of Viacom's Paramount Pictures. The announcement was made by Glenn Middleworth, Vice President of Creative for Famous Music's Nashville Division.

A prolific and highly successful songwriter since the seventies, Harrison recently had a #1 hit with George Strait's I Hate Everything. A double Grammy nominee for his songs Strawberry Wine and A Face In The Crowd, in 1997 he garnered both the CMA and NSAI Song of the Year awards for Strawberry Wine recorded by Deana Carter. Harrison has written over 300 songs recorded by such diverse major label artists as Tim McGraw, Martina McBride, Kathy Mattea, Mark Chesnutt, Reba McEntire, Kenny Chesney, Chely Wright, Trisha Yearwood, Emmylou Harris, and many others. His songs have received 17 BMI Awards. Among his many #1 hits are Wild Angels, Everybody Knows, I Just Wanted You To Know, Wrong Side of Memphis, Hey, Cinderella, I Thought It Was You and She Dream, among others.

Middleworth said: "Gary Harrison is a multi-talented writer having worked both sides of the desk, as a songwriter and A&R scout. His award-winning songs have spanned four decades and I am confident that we can further that success by aggressively working his copyrights."

Aside from his stellar songwriting career, Harrison served as Senior Director of A&R at Mercury Records Nashville from 1994 to 2001. From 2001 to 2004, he went on to become managing partner of Big Picture Entertainment, a publishing/production company he founded with long-time creative partner Keith Stegall.
