04 FEBRUARY 2020 (NASHVILLE, TN)Anthem Entertainment, one of the world's leading independent music and entertainment content and services companies, is pleased to announce an exclusive worldwide publishing deal with songwriter Luke Preston.

Florida native Luke Preston picked up his first guitar at 7 years old. Learning to play by listening to The Beatles and Bruce Springsteen, he eventually started to gravitate towards country music through his mother’s love for Steve Earle, Guy Clark, Garth Brooks and Eric Church. He moved to Nashville in 2011, where he attended Belmont University. Graduating with a Music Business Degree in 2014, he quickly found his home on the road with the likes of Walker McGuire, Cale Dodds and Caroline Spence as their bass player. He continued to hone his songwriting craft over the years, creating a name for himself writing with Elvie Shane, Johnny McGuire and many more.

Tim Wipperman, President of Anthem Music Publishing Nashville, commented: “Luke’s lyrical and melodic sensibilities are wonderful, and he brings a great work ethic to boot. He will be a top writer in Nashville and adds a unique flavor to our writing crew.”

“When I met the Anthem team, I knew I had found kindred spirits. I’m so grateful that Lauren Lieu and the Anthem team have given me the opportunity to write songs for a living,” said Luke Preston. “I couldn’t have found a better team of champions and I’m so stoked for what the future holds.”
