Liz Hengber has signed an exclusive publishing agreement with Given Music Publishing. Hengber has penned six No. 1 songs, and has more than 65 cuts by artists including Reba, Vince Gill, Trisha Yearwood, Ronnie Dunn and more.

“We are very excited to have Liz join the Given team,” VP/GM, Given Music Publishing Michael Hollandsworth said. “During her tenure as one of Nashville’s elite songwriters, Liz has managed to sustain a cutting edge approach to her songwriting while maintaining an old school integrity to the lyrics she writes. Her ability to have continued success in multiple musical genres is a testament to the talent she brings to the company.”

“Songwriters do best in an atmosphere of dreamers and believers, and that’s exactly the kind of company that Cindy Owen and Jim Kacmarcik have created,” Hengber said. “I am looking forward to working alongside Mike Hollandsworth, Jenny Hall and all the amazingly talented writers at Given Music Publishing.”

Hengber is the recipient of seven ASCAP Awards, a Canadian Gospel Award and a Grammy Certificate for her two-song contribution to the SteelDrivers’ Grammy-award winning bluegrass album, The Muscle Shoals Recordings.
