NASHVILLE, TN (January 18, 2023) – Leading independent music publisher Big Machine Music (BMM), a subsidiary of HYBE America, announced today the signing of singer/songwriter Troy Cartwright to an exclusive co-publishing agreement. Cartwright officially joins BMM’s roster of hitmakers including Brett Young, Ryan Hurd, Laura Veltz, Matt Dragstrem, Jessie Jo Dillon and Eric Paslay, among others.

“Troy is a dual-threat talent whose time is upon us,” said BMM’s General Manager Mike Molinar. “His commercial phrasing and fresh ideas are ready made for radio. We are excited to champion him and his songs!”
Named a SiriusXM The Highway “On The Horizon Artist” and an “Artist You Need To Know” by Rolling Stone Country, the Texas-bred singer/songwriter has built a passionate touring fanbase with his fresh, neo-traditional style. Garnering over 80 million career streams to date, Cartwright independently released a new EP, JUST KIDS last year. As a songwriter, his cuts have included placements with Ryan Hurd, Nickelback, Josh Abbott Band and more.

“I couldn’t be more excited to be part of the Big Machine Music team,” shared Cartwright. “I’ve always been a fan of the way they advocate for their songwriters and navigate the complexities of being both a writer and artist. Mike Molinar, Tim Hunze, Michelle Attardi and the rest of the team have already exceeded my expectations. I know I’m right where I’m supposed to be!”
