SMP Nashville and CAM Creative have inked Ryan Larkins to a global publishing deal.

A promising newcomer in the country music scene, Larkins has already penned with the likes of Tony Lane, Tom Douglas, Lee Thomas Miller, Craig Wiseman, Tim Nichols, Rhett Akins, Ben Hayslip and Country Hall of Famer Bill Anderson. He also co-wrote Bill Anderson’s Grammy-nominated “Someday It’ll All Make Sense” f/Dolly Parton.

More recently, he saw chart success for his work on Cody Johnson’s “The Painter,” which hit #1 on the Country Airplay chart and secured him his first ACM Award nom for Song of the Year.

Additionally, Larkins has expanded his team and inked with Huskins-Harris for business management and McClanahan Management for artist management. Earlier this year, he dropped his debut EP, Meet Ryan Larkins, via Red Street Records.

From the moment I first met Ryan, it was obvious he had the heart of a true American storyteller,” said SMP Nashville CEO Rusty Gaston. “It has been amazing to watch him celebrate his first #1 single and now his first major award nomination, and we look forward to many more of his successes in the future.”

“Rusty Gaston and his team share the vision, as do Trisha McClanahan and Becky Harris, of how special Ryan Larkins is and we are watching it come to fruition together,” added CAM Creative founder Carole-Ann Mobley.

“Rusty, Aubrey [Landon] and team have been huge champions of mine. I am so excited to see what the future holds. I am so excited to partner with Trisha McClanahan. Her success, experience and belief in me and my music left me with no doubt she was the right person for me. Carole-Ann has believed in me from the beginning and I’m so thankful to continue to work with her,” said Larkins.
