Songwriter and Rome native Dawson Edwards has signed an exclusive worldwide publishing agreement with BMG Nashville.

Edwards was a recent participant in ASCAP’s GPS program which connects up and coming songwriters with established Nashville publishing partners.

Edwards’ most recent EP, “Half My Heart’s In Georgia,” is available at digital retailers.

“Dawson Edwards is the personification of our market,” said BMG’s Vice President of Creative, Daniel Lee. “He will never be outworked, never be discouraged, and never chase a trend at the expense of authenticity. He represents what is a very bright future for Country music.”
