Musicnotes Opens Operations Center in Nashville, Tennessee

07/10/2020
A digital sheet music company that offers 100% officially licensed and legal arrangements, Musicnotes, Inc. is expanding by opening an operations center in Nashville, Tennessee.

According to company officials, the entry into one of the most important hubs of original American music is both a powerful symbolic and logistical move for the worldwide leader in digital sheet music. Musicnotes is a widely recognized ally for musicians, having long championed intellectual property rights, and recently celebrated $100 million in royalties paid out to artists and songwriters.

"Nashville is the heart of songwriting – Music City," said Tim Reiland, Musicnotes Executive Chairman. "Musicnotes.com has been selling great songs and paying songwriters worldwide for more than 20 years. So, our team is thrilled to open a Nashville office, a city where we definitely belong."

Since being founded in 1998, Musicnotes has always had close ties with Nashville, and the move into the city represents an important step for the overall growth of the company, company officials said, with licensing, publisher relations, marketing, and design all now managed directly from the new office. The move makes logical sense: far more than the country music capital of the world, Nashville represents a diverse and wide musical culture that embraces bluegrass, rock, gospel, R&B, and many other genres. It is a composer's paradise, with an ever-present need for artist advocacy in digital sheet music distribution rights.

"The Nashville Songwriters Association International is very excited about Musicnotes opening a Nashville location. The company is not only a leader in online sheet music, but they've been an important partner with NSAI and the songwriter community for years," said Bart Herbison, Executive Director of NSAI. "They've led in fair payments to songwriters and music publishers. And recently, even volunteered contributions to the WRITER Foundation's grant program to help songwriters get through the COVID-19 pandemic. Musicnotes will immediately become valued members of the Nashville music community and the community at large."

Founded in 1998, Musicnotes noted it has transformed the way people purchase and play sheet music by fostering strong partnerships with music publishers, creating an ever-expanding catalogue of over 300,000 arrangements, and pioneering new technologies, like their top-rated sheet music apps for iOS and Android devices.
