The all-female singer-songwriter collective Song Suffragettes celebrated its fifth anniversary on Monday (March 11), with two songwriter rounds featuring 11 talented writers, as well as a special presentation for songwriter and publisher Liz Rose.

Rose accepted the inaugural “Yellow Rose of Inspiration Award,” for her work in supporting, writing and publishing many of the songs that inspired the more than 200 females who have performed on the Song Suffragettes stage over the years.

During a sold-out show at Nashville’s The Listening Room, NPR’s Jewly Hight moderated a Q&A with Rose, discussing her journey as a publisher and songwriter.

Additionally, songwriters including Kalie Shorr, Candi Carpenter, Tiera, Sarah DeFors, Kasey Tyndall, Savannah Keyes, Livy Jeanne, Michelle Pereira, Stevie Woodward, Caroline Watkins and 14-year-old prodigy Mia Morris on cajon.

In 2018, the group released the original track and video for “Time’s Up,” in support of the female empowerment movement by the same name. The song’s sales and streaming raised $10,000 for the Time’s Up Legal Defense Fund.
