Liz Rose To Appear In Country Music Hall Of Fame’s Poets And Prophets Series

Liz Rose will be the next featured writer in the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum’s Poets and Prophets series, which explores the careers of notable songwriters. Set for 2 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 19, in the museum’s Ford Theater, the program will feature an in-depth interview with Rose along with a performance. Following the program, she will sign commemorative posters from Hatch Show Print, available for purchase in the Museum Store.

A native of Irving, Texas, Rose moved to Nashville in her mid-thirties as a mother of three. Working in Nashville as a song publisher in the late 1990s, she began getting her own songs recorded. Rose penned hits for Gary Allan (“Songs About Rain”) and Lee Ann Womack (“The Wrong Girl”) before becoming a writing partner to Taylor Swift, and the two collaborated frequently during Swift’s rise to stardom. Rose was SESAC Songwriter of the Year in 2007 after co-writing seven songs on Swift’s self-titled debut, including “Tim McGraw,” “Teardrops on My Guitar,” and “Picture to Burn.” She won the Academy of Country Music’s 2012 Song of the Year award for “Crazy Girl,” recorded by the Eli Young Band, and also co-wrote Little Big Town’s “Girl Crush,” which spent 13 weeks at No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart in 2015 and captured a Grammy for Best Country Song.

Admission to Poets and Prophets is included with museum admission and free to museum members. Seating is limited and program passes are required for admittance. The program will be streamed live.
