Heart 's Nancy Wilson has reportedly sold a share of her master artist royalties to Round Hill Music for an undisclosed sum.

With Heart, Nancy has sold over 35 million records and earned four Grammy nominations since the mid-'70s.

The band produced several classic hit songs in the '70s and '80s, including "Barracuda," "Magic Man," "Alone," "Crazy On You" and its five-times platinum-selling mega hit "These Dreams," which features Nancy on lead vocals.

"I'm honored to be working with the good people at Round Hill and am looking forward to an ongoing working relationship," Nancy said in a statement.

Round Hill chairman Trevor Bowen added: "We are very pleased to announce the acquisition of Nancy Wilson's fantastic catalog of classic Heart tracks from across her career, including songs from her double and triple-platinum-selling albums. This important acquisition provides the company with direct exposure to a timeless American rock band."

The news makes Nancy the first major rock artist of 2022 to announce a catalog deal. Other acts like ZZ Top , Mötley Crüe , David Crosby and Bruce Springsteen made headlines with their own respective catalog deals last year.

Seems like a lot of these classic rock artists are selling off their music catalogs. To much pain and expense to license and collect royalties. Might as well sell and enjoy the rewards now.
