VP Writer Publisher Rels
As Vice President, Writer/Publisher Relations, Nashville, JODY WILLIAMS directs all writer/publisher relations activities in BMI’s Nashville office. Williams joined BMI in May of 2006, after leading Jody Williams Music, a joint publishing venture with Sony Tree, where he successfully placed 125 songs with major label country artists. Williams began his career at BMI in the late 1970’s, fresh out of college and en route to establishing himself as something of a Nashville wunderkind, holding creative positions for several major publishing firms.  In 1987, he returned to BMI and rose to the position of Assistant Vice President, Writer/Publisher Relations. Later, Williams was lured into the publishing world again, this time as President of the Nashville division of MCA Music Publishing, which flourished under his leadership, emerging as one of Nashville’s most awarded publishers. A Nashville native, Jody Williams attended the University of Denver and majored in advertising. Today, he also serves on the boards of the Country Music Association (CMA) and the Country Music Foundation (CMF).
