HIT SONGWRITER MARTY DODSON SIGNS WITH DYNAMIC NEW PUBLISHING COMPANY SNG MUSIC, LLP
NASHVILLE, TENN. (July 20, 2016) — SNG Music, LLP has added one of Nashville’s most successful songwriters, Marty Dodson, to its growing roster of hit-writing professionals.
Dodson exemplifies SNG’s mission “to create great Country music to entertain the world.” Six of his songs have peaked at No. 1. To date, more than 100 Dodson compositions have been recorded by many of the biggest stars in and beyond the Country genre, including Blake Shelton, Carrie Underwood, Rascal Flatts, Joe Cocker, Kenny Chesney, Leon Russell, The Plain White T’s and many other headliners.
Dodson adds that one of his proudest accomplishments so far involved “my song ‘Bounce’ knocking Psy out of the No. 1 spot on the K-Pop chart in Korea and winning Asian Song of the Year” honors.
“We are very proud to welcome Marty to our SNG family of writers,” says SNG Music partner Steve Leslie. “I’ve known him both as a friend and co-writer for 20 years. He represents all the qualities which make SNG Music unique among music publishers. He’s a great writer, a mentor to our younger songwriters, and a smart businessman. We feel lucky to have him.”
Leslie joined with Gary Reamey to launch SNG Music in 2014. With Leslie’s ongoing track record as a songwriter, performer and educator, and Reamey’s history as a songwriter and successful financial industry executive, the partners have the experience and the resources to meet their stated goal of working in partnership with artists, songwriters, record labels, producers, managers and other industry professionals to create and distribute country music.
In addition to Dodson, SNG’s staff of stellar writers include John Lennon songwriting contest winner Marianne Allison, Texas artist-songwriter sensation Abbey Cone, Steve Leslie and Gary Reamey. SNG is also proud to have celebrated veteran Bobby Fischer, whose songs have been recorded by Reba, Charley Pride, Conway Twitty, Tanya Tucker and more, as its honorary songwriter emeritus and mentor. New signings to SNG Music are expected to be announced shortly.
Based in Nashville, Tennessee, SNG Music’s primary goal is to build the next generation of great Country songwriters by mentoring their songwriters and fostering a creative and collaborative environment.
