Nashville, Tenn. (June 21, 2017) – BIG LOUD SHIRT PUBLISHING is proud to announce the re-signing of songwriters SARAH BUXTON and RODNEY CLAWSON, two of the most celebrated and successful tunesmiths in modern Country music.

In renewing their commitments, both writers reaffirm that BIG LOUD SHIRT is the ideal creative and business home for their hit-making talent, a team with a proven track record of excellence in Country music and beyond. The re-signing will provide each with a foundation to continue flourishing in the coming years.

“I love my Big Loud fam. There’s no one I’d rather make my memories with!” shares Buxton on the re-signing.

Clawson adds, “I'm honored to continue working with my Big Loud Shirt family. We've had nine great years together and I'm looking forward to many more.”

Buxton first signed with BIG LOUD SHIRT in 2012 after her career as a solo artist, which included the Top 25 single “Outside My Window.” Her first success as a songwriter came when Keith Urban released “Stupid Boy” (co-written by Buxton with Dave Berg and Deanna Bryant) on his album, LOVE, PAIN & THE WHOLE CRAZY THING. The song reached #3 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart in 2007 and won a Grammy for Best Male Country Vocal Performance in 2008. She has gone on to pen songs by Martina McBride (“Reckless”), Sara Evans (“Slow Me Down”), Cassadee Pope (“Frame by Frame”), Chris Lane (“Fix”), Florida Georgia Line (“Sun Daze”) and many more. 

Clawson began his BIG LOUD SHIRT songwriting tenure in 2008, and has since gone on to become an in-demand producer as well. His songwriting credits include 24 #1 hits like George Strait’s 2008 CMA Single of the Year “I Saw God Today,” Blake Shelton’s “Drink On It,” Luke Bryan’s “Drunk on You,” Jason Aldean’s “Take a Little Ride,” Kenny Chesney’s “American Kids,” and Florida Georgia Line’s “Dirt,” “Confession,” and “May We All” (featuring Tim McGraw), among others. Clawson is a six-time CMA Triple Play Award winner and two-time BMI Songwriter of the Year. As a producer, he’s scored a #1 with Jake Owen’s “Barefoot Blue Jean Night.”

“Rodney has been with Big Loud Shirt for about 10 years now. He is as much a part of our family and story as anyone can be. He is the ultimate professional and part of the bedrock of Big Loud. So honored to continue on with Rodney,” says Big Loud partner and award-winning songwriter Craig Wiseman. “Sarah has been the perfect addition to the Big Loud family from day one.  A dear friend to us all for years.  Her first co-write with Chris [Tompkins] and Rodney [Clawson] was a huge hit for The Band Perry and now with back-to-back Chris Lane hits and too many cuts to list, it is so gratifying to watch her enjoy the success she richly deserves. We big loud love us some Sarah!”
