Description

This is the chance to collect royalties from a catalog that includes a song performed by one of the best-selling artists of all time, Taylor Swift. This seven song country catalog includes a song from Swift's debut album, as well as songs by Canadian country band Emerson Drive, Lonestar, Drake White, Justin Moore, and Jackie Lee. In the last 12 months, this asset generated $2,136.

Three of the songs in this catalog were released over 10 years ago and continue to earn royalties today from steady digital income. Taylor Swift's “Mary's Song (Oh My My My)” and Emerson Drive's “Everyday Woman” were both released in 2006 and “You're Like Coming Home” was released in 2004. All three of these songs have been consistent sources of income quarter after quarter. In fact, the royalties for “Everyday Woman” increased 98% in 2016 over the previous year.

“You're Like Coming Home” was initially recorded by Emerson Drive in 2004 and in 2005 the group Lonestar recorded it and released it as the lead single from their album Coming Home. Since this auction is for songwriter royalties, you will earn money for public performances of both versions of this song.

What is being sold?

100% of the seller's interest in the songwriter's share of public performance royalties attributable to select musical works in the seller's catalog of songs administered by ASCAP. See the “Documents” tab for a full track list.

How does this asset make money?

Every time “Everyday Woman,” or any song in this catalog, is played on iTunes, Pandora, Spotify, or any other type of public performance, you earn royalties. ASCAP makes payments quarterly and the next ASCAP distribution is April 2017.
