Publishing

FAME Publishing was started in 1959 as Florence Alabama Music Enterpirses, which was shortned to FAME. The Company was started by Rick Hall, Billy Sherill and Tom Stafford over the City Drug Store in Florence, Alabama. Hall and Sherill had gotten a couple cuts working with publisher James Joiner and his Tune Publishing Company when they were approached by Stafford to start their own company. After a few cuts, Sherrill and Stafford left Hall with Sherill going to Nashville to become one of the most successful Producers/Songwriters/Executives in Nashville in the 1970’s & 1980’s.

Today the company has a catalog of over 3,000 songs with multiple top 10 singles, ASCAP awards and Song of the Year awards.
