GRAMMY-nominated singer-songwriter Drew Parker announces his signing with Relative Music Group in partnership with Sony Music Publishing for a global publishing deal. 

Parker – the Grammy & CMA Award-nominated country hitmaker behind hits like Luke Combs’ “Doin’ This” and “Forever After All” and Jake Owen’s “Homemade” – is a modern traditionalist with a country style rooted in the rich textures of the ‘90s. Now, after joining the Warner Music Nashville family, his signature style of using whip-smart lyricism and actual country instruments to pen quality-driven Number Ones with shine through on his solo music.

With a focus on publishing and artist development, Relative Music Group represents an array of songwriters, including Michael Hardy who is also a partner in the company.

I’m so grateful to be a part of the Relative family that Dennis, Jesse & Hardy have built,” says Drew Parker. “Getting to learn from and be encouraged by a guy like Dennis who has written some of the biggest songs of all time is an experience I never even dreamed of. I’ve also always wanted to be seen as not only a great artist but as a great songwriter, and no one does both of those better than Michael Hardy. I’m so excited for this journey.

Drew is such a talented writer,” says Michael Hardy. “He’s truly one of those guys that has a voice with his pen. It doesn’t matter who sings it, you know a Drew Parker song when you hear it. I’m excited to hear what he has to say over the next few years and can’t wait to watch his great songwriting pay off”
