Joy Williams has signed a co-publishing deal with Spirit Music Nashville. Williams is not only one half of the Civil Wars duo, she was also a contemporary Christian artist. Between 2001 and 2005, Williams was nominated for 11 Dove Awards, and the three records she released on Reunion Records cumulatively sold more than 250,000 copies.
In entering into an agreement with Spirit Music Nashville, the company has acquired Williams' compositions from her various song catalogs, including her award-winning work as part of the duo The Civil Wars, as well as several masters that she controls. Additionally, Spirit announced it would administer Williams' most recent solo album, Front Porch, as well as her compositions going forward. Through this new deal, Spirit Music Nashville will also publish her works on a go-forward basis.
"Joy Williams is a gift to music. She is an incredibly talented singer and songwriter," says Frank Rogers, Chief Creative Officer, Spirit Music Group/CEO, Spirit Music Nashville. "We are thrilled to have her as a part of the Spirit Music family and look forward to continuing this wonderful partnership."
"I'm thrilled to continue to partner with the talented team at Spirit for all my writing adventures," says Williams. "Whether it's writing with other artists, writing music for TV/film, or for my new project, their support is a major asset in helping me level up along my creative path."
