Publishers June 2019

Ryan Beuschel, VP/A&R Warner Chappell Publishing
Ryan started in publishing as catalog coordinator at Universal, then moved to the label side of Universal as A&R coordinator. His next position was Associate Director of Membership for ASCAP Nashville where he provided support for developing and established writers. In 2014 he went full circle back into publishing as Director A&R at Warner Chappell and was promoted to his current position in 2017. His  varied background serves him well as he leads in the discovery of new talent, as well as the development of the existing roster of songwriters.


Nate Lowery, GM/VP Creative, Cornman Music
Growing up in Muscle Shoals, Alabama as the son of hit songwriter Donnie Lowery, publishing was a natural career choice for Nate. He started in the tape copy room of Windswept and then spent three years helping Chris Oglesby launch and build Oglesby Writer Management. His next move was in 2007 to another start-up company,  Cornman Music, a joint venture between Warner Chappell and songwriting giant Brett James where he has helped Cornman build a sold roster of writers, score multiple hits and launch the career of  Kip Moore.
