FEBRUARY 19 (NASHVILLE, TN) – Anthem Entertainment, one of the world's leading independent music and entertainment content and services companies, is pleased to announce the catalog acquisition and exclusive worldwide publishing deal with Grammy award winning songwriter Steven Battey.

Tim Wipperman, President of Anthem Music Publishing Nashville, commented: “When I heard Steven's music after his win for ASCAP Country Song of the Year with ‘One Number Away’, we realized he was a uniquely talented multi-genre writer and artist. He brings a singular perspective on life to us and I’m beyond pleased he chose to work with Anthem.”

“I wanna thank Anthem for believing in me and bringing me on this amazing roster of talent, said Steven Battey. “Special shoutout to Tim Wipperman and Helen Murphy, without them this would not be possible. I'm so grateful to be a part of this amazing creative family.”
After having solid success as a pop songwriter/producer, Steven Battey (born in Savannah, GA) moved from Los Angeles to Nashville in 2014 to pursue his love for country music. His credits include winning a Grammy Award for his contributions on Madonna's "Revolver" record, and two Grammy nominations for his work on Justin Bieber’s certified Platinum album ‘My World 2.0’ and Flo Rida’s Top 5 Billboard Hot 100 hit, “Sugar”. Always an innovator with his talent and vision, his mix of urban influences and country roots assisted him in his transition to Nashville. In 2016, Steven began working with a relatively new and unknown artist named Luke Combs. They would eventually write and produce the song "One Number Away" together which was released as the third single from Luke’s major-label debut album ‘This One's for You’. This garnered Battey his first #1 song on the Billboard Country charts and eventually winning the ASCAP Song of the Year Award in 2019.
