"Arthur has had a huge impact on Nashville, signing Dierks Bentley and Taylor Swift among others, to their first publishing deals," notes ole Chief Creative Officer, Gilles Godard. "Having worked both in publishing and on the record side offers him a unique perspective on the ever-changing music business and I look forward to adding him to our team at ole."
Comments ole President Michael McCarty: "Arthur's song plugging and talent development track record clearly make him one of country music's premier creative executives, and hiring him is a pivotal moment in the growth of our Nashville operation. We look forward to him helping ole attain our goal of becoming the publisher of choice for the best songwriters in the business."

He soon joined the creative team full-time and rose quickly through the ranks as an effective song plugger and music publisher, placing over one hundred songs over five years, resulting in ten number one singles, and developing some of country music's most promising newcomers including Dierks Bentley, Miranda Lambert and a 14-year-old singer/songwriter by the name of Taylor Swift. In 2005, he joined Capitol Records Nashville as Senior Director of A&R where he continued his creative relationship with Dierks Bentley and Eric Church.
