Universal Music Publishing Group Nashville Signs Caylee Hammack to Exclusive Worldwide Deal
Universal Music Publishing Group (UMPG) Nashville has signed an exclusive, global publishing deal with ASCAP songwriter Caylee Hammack.
“When Cyndi Forman and Travis Gordon introduced me to Caylee and her music, I knew we had to sign her right away. She’s the ultimate dual threat… an incredible lyricist and a phenomenal vocalist. We can’t wait for Music Row to discover her special talent,” said Kent Earls, UMPG Nashville Executive VP/General Manager.
“I am humbled and happy to find a home for my music. Thank you to Universal, especially Cyndi and Travis, for taking me on and welcoming me into the family. I cannot wait to see what all we can do together,” said Hammack.
At 19 Hammack moved to Nashville from Ellaville, Georgia, and became a part of ASCAP’s GPS Program, which led her to winning the ASCAP Foundation’s Sammy Cahn award. The award is given each year to a promising and aspiring lyricist recommended by ASCAP Creative Service Executives and selected by a distinguished group of songwriters, based on the quality of the lyrics submitted. Past recipients include John Mayer, Lori McKenna and Katie Herzig.
