Grammy nominated singer/songwriter and member of the country music supergroup Pistol Annies, Ashley Monroe, has signed a joint worldwide publishing agreement with Low Country Sound and Warner/Chappell Music, the music publishing arm of Warner Music Group. Monroe has written No. 1 hits for Jason Aldean (“The Truth”) and Miranda Lambert (“Heart Like Mine”), which were RIAA-certified Platinum and Gold, respectively. The list of artists who have recorded Monroe’s songs is long and illustrious, among them are Vince Gill, Carrie Underwood, Dwight Yoakam, Brendan Benson, Norah Jones, Gene Watson & Rhonda Vincent, The Oakridge Boys, Butch Walker, and Guy Clark.

“Ashley is one of the most respected and celebrated figures in Nashville who I’ve had the honor to work with,” said Dave Cobb of Low Country Sound. “Her talent is astounding, and we’re thrilled to count her among our unparalleled songwriting community, especially as she embarks on this next stage in her career.”

“There’s a reason Ashley has had so much success all these years on Music Row,” said Ben Vaughn, President & CEO of Warner/Chappell Nashville. “Her ability to be both honest and vulnerable, while bringing warmth and wit to her songwriting, demonstrates the mastery of her craft. We are excited to welcome her to the Warner/Chappell family.”

Monroe adds “I’m so happy to be starting a fresh chapter of my songwriting career with a team of champions surrounding me. I’m more inspired and on fire more than ever and ready to ignite big dreams.”

An acclaimed performer in her own right, Monroe’s LP The Blade earned her a Grammy nomination for Best Country Album in 2016. That same year, her duet with Blake Shelton (“Lonely Tonight”) was nominated for Best Country Duo/Performance along with Vocal Event of the Year and Musical Event of the Year at the 2015 ACM’s and CMA’s, respectively. Since 2011, Monroe has lent her talents to the Pistol Annies, a trio consisting of fellow country music powerhouses Miranda Lambert and Angaleena Presley. The group’s debut album, Hell on Heels captivated rock, roots and pop critics alike and landed at No. 1 on the Billboard country chart.
