ole Acquires Follese Catalog

ole is pleased to announce that it has purchased the back catalog of Keith Follese, one of the most successful songwriters on Nashville's Music Row.

Follese, who has co-written hits for Faith Hill, Tim McGraw and Martina McBride, has the ability to write music in many different styles and genres. It was country artist Randy Travis who gave Follese his first #1 hit with "Before You Kill Us All" in February of 1993. Faith Hill's recording of "The Way You Love Me" garnered Follese ASCAP's Songwriter of the Year award for 2001. The song was also nominated for a Grammy award.

Within a 12-month period, Follese had a song at number one for 15 weeks with consecutive hits "The Way You Love Me," "I Love You" by Martina McBride, and "Something Like That" by Tim McGraw. Another hit by Follese that year was "Smile," by Lonestar.

ole is a global full service independent music publisher where the goal is to be the home for the best songwriters, composers, management talent and intellectual property investors and the first choice music source for creators in all media.
