ole has acquired the catalog, trademarks, and songwriter contracts of Nashville-based independent music publisher Red Vinyl Music, LLC. ole will now control Red Vinyl’s catalog of nearly 3,000 songs as well as futures for songwriters Chris Janson, Mark Irwin, and Pavel Dovgalyuk. The catalog includes Tim McGraw’s current single, “How I’ll Always Be,” which was co-written by Janson and ole songwriter Jeremy Stover, and the top 25 Chris Janson song, “Holdin’ Her.”

The catalog also includes the works of Streamsound Records artist/writers Dakota Bradley, Austin Webb, Jaida Dreyer, and Dave & Julia Carlson.

“The Red Vinyl catalog is an absolute gold mine, featuring an incredible body of work across their legacy and current writers. We’re thrilled to represent them, and understand the responsibility of taking care of and adding value to the catalog and those who have helped build it,” said John Ozier, Vice President of Creative at ole. “Furthermore, partnering with Warner Bros. recording artist Chris Janson is a huge honor, as we have all been fans of Chris from the beginning. The future of the ole creative team, working with this catalog and current writers like Chris, Mark and Pavel, is definitely going to be a bright one.”

“I’m so honored to be an official ole writer,” said Janson. “I love my job, and it fires me up to have a great publishing team that works as hard as I do.”

Red Vinyl Music was established in late 2010 when producer Byron Gallimore partnered with Jim Wilkes and Tim McHugh.
