Row Call

The Row Call Songwriter Group gives songwriters the direction, support and songplugging team they need to get a cut with a major label artist. Our goal is to help songwriters who want a publishing deal, get ready for it.

Each month, Row Call writers receive:

  • A monthly group meeting with their songplugging team (online or in-person).
  • Play their song and get songplugger feedback on its pitchability.
  • Find out what major label artists are looking for songs.
  • Songpluggers report back on songs they pitched the previous month.

The Songplugging Team:

Shar’n Clark of Shake ‘Em Up Music and Nancy Deckant of Nashville Cool are your songplugging team.

Shar'n Clark

30 plus years music business experience. Cuts include Blake Shelton, George Strait, Reba McEntire, Sara Evans, John Michael Montgomery.

Nancy Deckant

4 plus years songplugging experience. Nashville Cool has a single by Charles Esten (Deacon of the show Nashville) and cuts with indie artists.

Cost and Details

Instead of typical songplugger fees with high monthly retainers and back-end bonuses, the deal goes like this:

  • Monthly fee of $50/mo for the first 3 months, then goes to $85/mo.
  • When the songpluggers want to represent your song, they offer a single-song publishing agreement.
  • Songpluggers pitch your songs to artists signed to major country artists with national distribution.
  • Meetings are the 2nd Thursday of the month, 5:30 pm central, at Nashville Cool offices on Music Row.
