Song plugging group, Chicks With Hits, is a one-stop-shop where women song pluggers from different publishing organizations pitch songs to artists. Among the hits that these “chicks” have “hatched” are Jo Dee Messina’s “Bring on the Rain,” Joe Nichol’s’ “Tequila Makes Her Clothes Fall Off,” Martina McBride’s “In My Daughter’s Eyes,” and Blake Shelton’s “Bringing Back The Sunshine.”
“Debbie, Courtney and Stephanie represent the camaraderie, commitment and friendly competition that is the Nashville publishing community,” says Nancy Deckant. “They have changed many a songwriter’s life by being a believer in the talent that others cannot see yet.”
“Songs and songwriters are why I do what I do. They are ultimately the heart and soul of the music business,” stated Debbie Zavitson. “I am looking forward to sharing information and guidance.”
