With over thirty years of success on Nashville’s Music Row, Woody Bomar launched Green Hills Music Group as an independent publishing house that looks toward the future while drawing from his rich experience in various aspects of the ever-changing music industry.
A graduate of Middle Tennessee State University, Woody left a successful 10-year advertising agency career to follow his passion for music. Starting as a songwriter for Combine Music Publishing, Woody penned hits there including major singles for Loretta Lynn, Conway Twitty (#1), Jim Glaser (#1) and Big Al Downing. Plus writing additional recordings for numerous top artists of the 80s. He transitioned into the publishing side, ultimately becoming General Manager of Combine. He promoted the music of a large staff including artist/writers Kris Kristofferson, Tony Joe White, Larry Gatlin and Dolly Parton. His efforts successfully placed notable hits for major artists at the time including The Judds, Restless Heart, Reba McEntire and Ray Charles.
After 8 years Woody departed Combine Music to start Little Big Town Music Group with his business partner Kerry O’Neil. Serving as President and General Manager, he nurtured the careers of numerous top Nashville songwriters including Bob DiPiero, Steve Seskin, Karen Staley, Jay Knowles, Cathy Majeski and John Scott Sherrill.
During its 10-year history, Little Big Town Music Group celebrated publishing of 15 #1’s, 30 top ten singles and more than 500 major label cuts. BMI honored the company with the Robert J. Burton Award for the most performed country song of 1995 for Neal McCoy’s recording of "Wink," written by Bob DiPiero and Tom Shapiro. Other Little Big Town Music Group songs were recorded by such top country artists as Faith Hill, George Strait, Tim McGraw, Reba McEntire, Diamond Rio, John Michael Montgomery, Pam Tillis, Kenny Chesney, Waylon Jennings, Vince Gill, Patty Loveless, The Nashville Bluegrass Band and Collin Raye. Additionally, Little Big Town Music Group enjoyed pop cuts by Neil Diamond, Delbert McClinton, Dusty Springfield and Peter Frampton.
In 1998 Little Big Town Music Group was purchased by Sony/ATV Music Publishing which also employed Woody as Senior Vice President to reorganize and manage their Creative Department. During his 8-year tenure with Sony/ATV the company consistently maintained the top country publisher position with both BMI and Billboard Magazine. Woody and his team achieved 1,937 major label recordings including 99 top-ten singles and 46 #1 singles. He and his team signed such artist/writers as Taylor Swift, Dierks Bentley, Rascal Flatts, Josh Turner, Marty Stuart, Blake Shelton, Eric Church and Miranda Lambert to the Sony/ATV roster.
Returning to his love of independent music publishing in 2007 with the launch of Green Hills Music Group, Woody continues to be highly involved with songwriters and the Nashville music community. He is a member of the Country Music Association, Americana Music Association, The Academy of Country Music and ASCAP. He has served on the Boards of The Copyright Society of The South, Leadership Music, The Musicians Hall Of Fame, Belmont University's Curb School of Music Business and The Nashville Songwriters Association International. He is recipient of NSAI's President’s Award (twice) and is an inductee into Middle Tennessee State University's Mass Communications Dept. Wall of Fame.
