About Us


Since 1984, Ten Ten Music Group, Inc. has established itself as one of the most successful independent music publishing companies in Nashville. Founded by Barry and Jewel Coburn, Ten Ten Management (credited with launching country superstar Alan Jackson’s career) and Ten Ten Music Group (with catalogues from over thirty-five staff writers) have both been successful endeavors for the Coburns. With a catalogue that boasts over 700 cuts, Ten Ten Music Group has never stopped striving to foster the creation of meaningful and commercially successful music through partnerships with talented and successful artists and songwriters.

Appearing on Billboard’s list of Top Song Publishers from 2004 to 2006, Ten Ten Music continues to expand its footprint across multiple genres. With cuts by major rock groups like Papa Roach, Shinedown, Halestorm, and Cavo as well as other superstars, including One Direction, Bonnie Raitt and Selena Gomez, the diverse talent of Ten Ten Music's writing staff has ventured far beyond Nashville. 

Ten Ten has always worked hard to maintain a strong international presence, which is evidenced by a number of top ten hits in Australia by artists such as Kirsty Lee Akers, Ronni Rae Rivers, and the seven-week #1 smash "Look It Up," recorded by Australian star Jasmine Rae. There has also been significant success in other international markets including Canada, Japan, the UK, Sweden and beyond. This is all in addition to Ten Ten's continued presence in the US country market. 

The writing staff at Ten Ten has also enjoyed recent success with cuts by country artists such as Tim McGraw, Miranda Lambert, Pistol Annie's, Reba McEntire, David Nail and many others. Continuing a tradition of developing and nurturing the careers of such superstars as Alan Jackson and Keith Urban, Ten Ten has also been working to shape the careers of up-and-coming artists Clare Dunn and Femke Weidema.

Ten Ten has always been successful in securing songs placements in a variety of film and television projects. Covering both major and independent projects, Ten Ten has had recent success with the highly successful compilation album inspired by one of 2012's most successful films, The Hunger Games. The Hunger Games: Songs From District 12 And Beyond, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart, features some of today's hottest acts and was recently certified gold by the RIAA. 

With a diverse and talented staff of writers that includes Grammy Winners, iconic performers, writers of some of history's most well-known songs and talented up-and-coming writers and performers, Ten Ten has positioned itself to be a driving force in the music industry at large for many years to come.
