Big Machine Music, Dr. Luke’s Prescription Form Joint Venture – Big Machine Music and Dr. Luke’s Prescription Songs have formed a joint venture to allow the two companies to co-publish songwriters with the goal of bringing country and pop writers into each other’s realm. The deal opens the door for the 30-to-40 writers in Dr. Luke’s camp to work with the 10 writers signed to the Big Machine’s relatively new publishing operation.

Big Machine Music VP Mike Molinar and Prescription general manager Beka Tischker will oversee day to day management of the songwriters and artists. The first signing under the new deal is former “The Voice” contestant RaeLynn, who signed on prior to the ASCAP Pop Awards Wednesday night. RaeLynn begins recording her Big Machine debut next week.
