A Nashville native and Belmont University graduate, she has worked in the publishing industry for over 17 years.  Carla got her start by pitching songs for two major independent publishing houses; Bluewater Music and Little Big Town Music. In 1998, she partnered with Kerry O’Neil to form Big Yellow Dog Music.  That relationship has lasted over 16 years and garnered four GRAMMY’s and 22 number one songs. Included in that success is the chart topping, and most downloaded country song of all time; Lady Antebellum’s “Need You Now”. The track was awarded “Song of the Year” and “Country Song of the Year” at the 54th Annual GRAMMY Awards. Also included in that success is the pop smash “All About That Bass”, written and performed by Big Yellow Dog Music writer and Epic recording artist Meghan Trainor. Carla has also worked with Vanguard Recording Artist Mindy Smith, NRBQ’s Al Anderson, Pat McLaughlin, Shawn Camp, John Scott Sherrill, Karyn Rochelle, Josh Kear, Daniel Tashian and Logan Mize.  Big Yellow Dog Music has received honors such as BMI 2006 Song Of The Year, ASCAP’s 2007 & 2010 Song Of The Year, 2010 ACM Song Of The Year, 2011 ASCAP Global Impact Award and 2013 ASCAP Songwriter Of The Year (Josh Kear).
