Lady Antebellum

Kobalt’s US division last week signed a worldwide administration deal with country pop trio Lady Antebellum. The publisher will provide creative, sync and administration services for some of the trio’s catalogue, as well as the songs penned by the band on their upcoming new album.

Kobalt’s Senior VP Whitney Daane told CMU: “It is a privilege to have the opportunity to work with such unique individual and collective talent as Charles Kelley, Dave Haywood and Hillary Scott. As songwriters, they each bring their own creative vision for Lady Antebellum. Their collaboration has created one of country music’s top bands, and they are truly a global ambassador for the format. We are honoured that Lady Antebellum has chosen Kobalt and look forward to being a part of their ongoing and future success”.
