Nashville, TN -- Nikki Williams has signed a new exclusive publishing agreement with Big Yellow Dog Music. She has been a Big Yellow Dog Music writer since first signing with the company in September 2009.
A natural born storyteller and a gifted artist-writer, Williams started writing songs while still in school after she and her family relocated from South Africa to Nashville, Tenn. Williams co-wrote Demi Lovato's hit 2x platinum song "Heart Attack" which became the lead single off the singer's fourth studio album, Demi. Her catalog also includes "Like My Mother Does," which became the first single for Lauren Alaina.
"I've worked with Nikki since she was 18, and she's as fiery a singer now as she was then," Wallace says. "There is no one like Nikki! She is such an amazing talent, and I am so happy to continue our working relationship."
