Sony Music Publishing Nashville today announced the renewal of its worldwide publishing agreement with award-winning songwriter and producer Lindsay Rimes. Originally hailing from Surry Hills, Australia, Lindsay Rimes has built a reputation as one of today’s most sought after hitmakers in Nashville and across the globe. Among his many chart achievements, Rimes recently co-wrote and produced Nate Smith’s “Whiskey on You,” which scored a second consecutive week at No. 1 on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart dated February 11 and spent six weeks on Canada’s country radio chart.
Lindsay said, “I couldn’t be more excited about continuing my journey with the Sony family. I consider Josh and Rusty and the whole team to be simply the best at what they do.”
Throughout his career, Rimes’ songs have been recorded by many of today’s top country artists including Kelsea Ballerini, Thomas Rhett, Phillip Phillips, Dylan Scott, LoCash, The Cadillac Three, Tyler Rich, Canaan Smith and The Shires. He also co-penned Kane Brown's 4X platinum single "Heaven," which reached No.1 on Billboard's Country Airplay chart, climbed to the Top 20 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart and achieved over 1 billion total streams. Rimes’ songwriting accomplishments span across multiple genres, with contributions on Troye Sivan's 2014 EP TRXYE, which debuted at No. 5 on the Billboard 200 chart, as well as Kylie Minogue's 2018 album Golden, which entered the charts at No.1 in the U.K and Australia.
Sony Music Publishing Nashville EVP, Creative Josh Van Valkenburg said, “Lindsay’s star has been steadily rising over the last few years, and it’s been amazing to watch him succeed and grow creatively beyond genres. He’s a very important member of our Sony team, and we are elated to continue our partnership with him.”
