Trailblazing music publishing house Tree Vibez Music is proud to welcome a talented new member to its team with Country hitmaker Canaan Smith signing on as the firm’s newest staff songwriter.
Celebrating the news at the Nashville headquarters of ASCAP (The American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers) on Tuesday (5/22), Smith joined TVM founders and Florida Georgia Line superstars Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley, TVM general manager Leslie T. DiPiero, TVM creative director/TVM tour manager Adam Romaine, ASCAP senior creative director Mike Sistad, and ASCAP creative director Robert Filhart, to toast the news in laid-back style.
“I’m right where I need to be,” said Smith of his new songwriting home. “I’ve never felt more inspired to make great music.”
“We are so excited to be able to team up with such an amazing artist and one of our best friends,” Hubbard added. “This is a full circle dream come true for all of us and the journey is just beginning.”
Along with Smith, TVM’s groundbreaking group of young writers includes proven hitmakers Corey Crowder (Chris Young’s PLATINUM-certified #1s “I’m Comin’ Over” and “Think of You”), Jordan Schmidt (Jason Aldean’s GOLD-certified #1s “Lights Come On” and “You Make It Easy”) and RaeLynn (GOLD-certified “God Made Girls”), as well as rising talents James McNair, Cameron Montgomery and Daniel Ross. The TVM team is currently credited on more than a dozen new releases.
