Evening With a Publisher Success Story!

We were excited to hear from a writer that got a cut on Keith Urban's new album, Ripcord!

Jonny Price got signed to a publishing deal with BMG after pitching his songs at one of our Evening With a Publisher events.  Here is the email he just sent to us:

"Hey Larry! I hope all is wonderful with you! I wanted to let you know that I got a cut on Keith Urban's new album RIPCORD coming out this Friday. You and your studio absolutely changed my life and I could never thank you enough but I just wanted to say hello and "thank you" once again. All my best!"
