Monty Powell Signs With Ole Publishing

SESAC-affiliated songwriter Monty Powell stopped by the performing rights organization’s Nashville headquarters to celebrate his new publishing agreement with Ole Publishing.  Powell, SESAC’s 2009 Songwriter Of The Year, has been one of country’s most successful and prolific songwriters over the last few years scoring hits including “Days Go By,” “Kiss A Girl,” “Til Summer Comes Around” and 2009 SESAC’s Song of the Year, “Sweet Thing” all recorded by superstar Keith Urban. Most recently, Powell was the recipient of the CMA’s coveted “Triple Play” Award for three No. 1 hits in one year.
