Natalie Hemby and Luke Laird are co-writers on Kacey Musgraves' new album 'Golden Hour'
In one of the many reviews of Kacey Musgraves' new album 'Golden Hour' it was described as "everything that is good about country music." It's a soul-baring collection of love songs with a resounding reminder of Kacey's incredible talent. Luke Laird co-wrote the album's lead single "Space Cowboy" which she performed on The Tonight Show, along with "Butterflies" which was also co-written by Natalie Hemby. NPR described the album's ninth track "Velvet Elvis" as a "declaration of affection in the language of kitsch." The song was co-written by Hemby.

I have so much confidence in the people around me – they're creating that environment that allows great things to happen. I've been blessed to be a part of this since day one and I'm so thankful I get to continue be an active part going forward,” Dean says.

“We are honored to be extending our relationship with Barry Dean and thrilled to continue our journey together. Since we first established our partnership with Creative Nation in 2012, we’ve been fortunate to have Barry in our lives and consider him to be a part of a core group of writers that has propelled PULSE’s growth over the past several years. He is truly an 'artist whisperer' with a unique ability to get the best out of anyone he works with in the studio, no matter what genre or walk of life they may come from.” Pulse Music Group’s co-founder, Scott Cutler, adds.
