BMI songwriter Liz Rose gathered with friends, family and fans at Nashville venue The Country on Wednesday, May 17 to celebrate her new album, Swimming Alone. Rose was joined on stage by BMI songwriter Lori McKenna for a special performance of selected tracks from the album.

“First I never thought I would do it,” Rose told MusicRow recently about the project. “All these ideas started coming to me and I think ‘Swimming Alone’ was the first title. I also had ‘Grocery Money’ and ‘Yellow Room.’ I thought, ‘These are such good titles, but they are really my story,’ and I just don’t think I could use those titles and write about anything but me.” The intensely personal album released May 12.

Rose welcomed a who’s-who of her closest songwriting friends on the album, including McKenna, Stephony Smith, Caitlyn Smith, Natalie Hemby, Lisa Carver, and more. Mac McAnally produced the album.
