Gordie Sampson signs worldwide publishing deal
Carrie Underwood, Faith Hill, Keith Urban, Rascal Flatts and Florida Georgia Line are all big in the country world.
Did you know they all have one thing in common?
All of those big country names, and many more, have songs written by a man from Cape Breton.
That would be Gordie Sampson.
He recently signed an exclusive worldwide publishing deal with Sheltered Music.
Sheltered Music SVP Darrell Franklin told Music Row Magazine he was always impressed with Sampson's music
“From the first time I heard Gordie’s music, I was completely blown away.
I’ve been a huge fan of his ever since. Gordie brings it all. He is as strong musically as he is lyrically, and his music always brings a unique identity and sound to to whatever he writes.
Gordie is going to be such a great addition to this roster in Nashville and so proud to have him onboard.”
Sampson told Music Row Magazine he's looking forward to working with the team at Sheltered Music.
“I am wholeheartedly excited to be joining the Sheltered team.
Their combined experience and legacy in publishing is undeniable and I look forward to being part of the momentum as they go forward."
Sampson grew up in Big Pond, right here on Cape Breton Island.
