Singer-songwriter Jaida Dreyer has entered into a publishing agreement with Carnival Music.
Over the years, Dreyer has become one of Nashville’s most sought-after co-writes by having songs recorded by Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, Reba McEntire, Eric Church, Sara Evans, Granger Smith, Brantley Gilbert, Cody Jinks, Kevin Costner & The Modern West, and more. She’s credited for a multi-week number one with Luke Bryan’s “Home Alone Tonight,” featuring Little Big Town’s Karen Fairchild, and her eclectic writing style has had her penning songs with the likes of Guy Clark to top writers on the LA pop scene. Her songs have been featured in Paramount’s Yellowstone, A&E’s The Returned, and Netflix’s Longmire, and she is a writer of nine acclaimed tunes for the television series Nashville.
Owner of Carnival Music, Frank Liddell, comments about the signing, saying, “Jaida is a consummate professional. She succeeds in every endeavor she takes on. She’s a proven successful songwriter, and I believe she will continue to deliver her best work for many years to come. We are excited to be a part of her future.”
Nicole Wyatt, Carnival Music Creative Director, adds, “I couldn’t be more excited to be working alongside Jaida. She has such an infectious spirit, and her successes combined, just makes you want to work harder for her.”
Dreyer spoke about coming to Nashville and her first meeting at Carnival, saying, “When I moved to Nashville, the very first meeting I had in town was with Frank Liddell. I’ve always looked at those part of the Carnival family as having one of the best seats in the house, and it feels very full circle to be sitting in one of them now. I owe a lot to Courtney Gregg for bringing me into the fold.”
She has succeeded as a singer, songwriter, and performer who traveled coast-to-coast, performing for fans and opening for artists ranging from Eric Church, Luke Bryan, and Dierks Bentley to the legendary Merle Haggard. She is also a frequent guest on The Grand Ole Opry.
In December 2018, after accepting an invitation and representing team Jake Owen, she was crowned the inaugural winner of USA Network’s singing competition show, ‘Real Country’.
Born in Thunder Bay, Ontario, and raised in Latimer, Iowa, Jaida Dreyer was a “horse-crazy” little girl who grew up showing competitively and won her first of many world championships at 5, getting an early education in the sort of work ethic required to reach success. Before she turned 18, Dreyer had lived in seven states, including Iowa, Florida, Wisconsin, and Tennessee, with the bulk of her time spent between Texas and Georgia. During those gypsy years, Dreyer says, music and songwriting remained a constant, and when forced to retire from riding at 17, she took the biggest risk of her life: “The only other thing I knew how to do was write songs,” Dreyer says. “Growing up on the road, I learned that life isn’t a fairy tale,” Dreyer says. “It gave me a lot to write about and a story that most 17-year-old girls don’t have. I look at it as a blessing. My crooked road has given me a career.”https://www.countryschatter.com/2022/06/hit-songwriter-jaida-dreyer-signs-publishing-deal-with-carnival-music/NewsPress Release"Home Alone Tonight",Carnival Music,facebook,Faith Hill,Jaida Dreyer,Kevin Costner & The Modern West,Reba,Tim McGraw
