I Wanna Hold Your Songs features two #1 songs from some of today’s biggest male country stars. “Getting You Home” was Chris Young’s first #1 single and was nominated for a Grammy for Best Male Country Performance. The song came off his #1 album, The Man I Want To Be. “She Wouldn’t Be Gone” was a #1 single for Blake Shelton for two straight weeks. The song reappeared on Blake’s greatest hits album Loaded: The Best of Blake Shelton.

We’re so excited about our new Hearts Bluff Music poster! They were custom designed by the folks at the world famous Hatch Show Print shop here in Nashville.
Hearts Bluff just returned from another great trip to the 30a Songwriter Fest. It was our third time attending the festival and our second time hosting The Boathouse venue. Our sponsored venue has become a real gem of the festival–several writers even told us that they were crossing their fingers to play at the Boathouse. Every set was standing room only and we couldn’t have been more excited.

A great dinner was held at Red Pony in Franklin to commemorate the recent purchase by Wondrous Worship of the Alletrop music publishing catalog from writer/producer Ed Cash.
Here at Hearts Bluff we greatly value our relationship with songwriter Kye Fleming. Her songs are legendary, her lyrics are brilliant, she’s an inspiration, and a nice person on top of that! We are so thrilled the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum chose to honor her at their “Poets and Prophets” series this past summer.

Robert Knight recorded this massive hit in 1968. The song peaked at #13 on the charts, and went on to become a Top 40 hit in the following three decades. The UK versions of the song have appeared on the Top 40 chart in every decade between 1960-2010, hitting the Top 20 in every decade but the 1980s. Talk about everlasting…
“Everlasting Love” has been re-cut by various artists including Carl Calrton, Rex Smith and Rachel Sweet, The Love Affair, Sandra, Gloria Estefan, and Jamie Cullum who recorded the song for the movie Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason soundtrack in 2004.

Hearts Bluff Music attended the Billboard CMS for the second year in a row. The event ran June 4-5 and was held at Nashville’s very cool (literally and figuratively) Cannery Ballroom. There was so much information flowing through the room that it was difficult to grasp it all, but we have some highlights here…

FRESH CASH…FRESH FACES IN THE CATALOG MARKET
It used to be that buyers of music publishing catalogs were mainly publishers themselves. Today, instead of traditional publishers, the underlying funding for catalogs is likely to be private equity groups such a hedge funds, pension funds, or in our case – a syndicate of private investors pooling their money.
Everybody was celebrating the good times in Nashville last Friday! Kool And The Gang was in town as the special guest opening act for Van Halen at the Bridgestone Arena. It may sound like an odd pairing, but once the music started the entire arena was up on their feet. Everyone danced the night away and proved that people just love to have a good time. What an awesome night filled with awesome music!
Check it out! We’ve got a picture of Scott and the Parker clan hanging back stage with Robert “Kool” Bell. Definitely a Top 10 experience for the Hearts Bluff Music team.

Here at Hearts Bluff we are proud sponsors of NSAI, and through our sponsorship we attended various writer rounds at this year’s Tin Pan South.
Tin Pan South, for those who don’t know, is an annual songwriter festival held here in Nashville. At ten different venues all over town, there are tons of well-known songwriters just sitting on stools playing their tunes… which may happen to be #1 hits.
