Haxton Road Studios has been on a fast track of expansion over the years. in early 2017, we built and introduced a world class recording facility to northwest arkansas. multiple engineers, producers, and programmers have been hired since providing quality results in many genres of music. We’ve worked with artists and businesses from all over the world. in 2018, we launched the Haxton Academy offering professional music production classes to the public. with various projects happening, haxton soon needed more rooms for efficiency which led to the addition of studio b (announced january 2019). behind the scenes of all the projects and collaborations, is an incredible team of songwriters and music creators that have come together in the form of a new company.

Today we’re proud to announce haxton road publishing co. and the signing of our first staff songwriters, Kenny drain and josh noren. other writers include ryan ceola and neil greenhaw.

“I couldn’t be more excited to have such a versatile/seasoned team of songwriters developing hit songs in Bentonville, Arkansas that will impact the music industry worldwide.” - Neil Greenhaw | Owner HRP.CO

“Kenny is a great songwriter that just happens to be a great singer on top of that. He and I have a lot of fun writing together and sometimes we knock it out of the park. Just ask Jason Aldean!”

“Kenny Drain, better known to me over the music row years as Kenny West, the man with a voice as smooth as single barrel Tennessee Whiskey. One of my main writers when we both worked for the famous Anne Murray and a writer you could always count on to deliver when you need a great song for any occasion or for any artist that needed a hit. Kenny went on to enjoy many cuts by top tier artists such as Blake Shelton, Jason Aldean and others that are still making hits today. My life was made better when our paths crossed back in the 90s and I’ll always remember and cherish our time together in Music City, USA.”
