Liz Rose Offers Peek Into A Day In The Life Of A Songwriter In New NSAI Workshop

Liz Rose and the Nashville Songwriters Association International are presenting a unique workshop event, “Inside the Industry with Liz Rose.” The one-of-a-kind event Nov. 30–Dec. 3 will give participants an exclusive “peek behind the curtain” of the day-to-day life of a songwriter and offer them the opportunity to learn the ins and out of how a publishing deal works and how to get one.

Participants will also have the opportunity to gain record label insight from Warner Music Nashville’s Cris Lacy (VP, A&R), participate in a Q&A session with Jody Williams (VP, Writer/Publisher Relations, BMI), and get a first-hand look at the demo development process, from song to studio. Attendees will also receive industry song feedback, participate in peer co-writing sessions, join a performance night at The Country, followed by a performance feedback session with Liz Rose Music, and more. They will also have the opportunity to attend a Bluebird Café Performance featuring Liz Rose and Friends during the four-day experience.

Rose has penned hits for artists including Taylor Swift, Little Big Town, Eli Young Band, Raelynn and more. Her songwriting awards include 2007 SESAC Songwriter of the Year, 2010 Grammy for ‘Best Country Song’ (“White Horse,” Taylor Swift), 2011 ACM ‘Song of the Year’ (“Crazy Girl,” Eli Young Band), 2015 CMA ‘Song of the Year’ award (“Girl Crush,” Little Big Town), and 2016 ACM ‘Song of the Year’ award (“Girl Crush,” Little Big Town).
