Liz Rose Renews Publishing Deal With Warner Chappell Music
Renowned songwriter Liz Rose has renewed her global publishing deal with Warner Chappell Music.
The Grammy, CMA, ACM, and SESAC Songwriter of the Year recipient is one of the first two songwriters to be inducted into the National Music Publishers’ Association, and was recently nominated for the Songwriters Hall of Fame. Rose also received the 2012 ACM Award for Song of the Year for Eli Young Band’s “Crazy Girl,” and in 2015, won Song Of The Year at the CMA Awards and the Grammy for Best Country Song for writing “Girl Crush” by Little Big Town.
“I hope everyone understands that Liz is a modern-day legend in our business,” explains Ben Vaughn, President & CEO, Warner Chappell Music, Nashville. “She’s a world-renowned lyricist, successful business owner, noted advocate for songwriter rights at the highest level of government, engaged board member, and a fiercely loyal friend to all in her world. I’ve been fortunate enough to partner with her for over a decade and I cannot understate how passionate and dedicated she is to her craft. Our entire Warner Chappell team is so proud to be a part of the next chapter in her historic body of work.”
Rose moved to Nashville in the mid ’90s and began writing songs at the age of 37. One of her first cuts was for Gary Allan, “Songs About Rain,” which became a top 20 country hit. She soon became a frequent collaborator to Taylor Swift, co-writing 16 songs with the superstar, including the No. 1 crossover hits “Teardrops on My Guitar;” “You Belong With Me,” which won the 2010 BMI Award for Song of the Year; “Tim McGraw;” “White Horse,” which won the 2010 Grammy Award for Best Country Song; and “All Too Well,” among others.
She also co-wrote the 10 minute version of Swift’s “All Too Well,” from the iconic Red (Taylor’s Version) album, which landed at No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot 100 and just received a nomination for Song of the Year at the upcoming 65th Grammy Awards. Rose also recently collaborated with Miranda Lambert on her album Wildcard, with five cuts including “It All Comes Out In The Wash,” which was nominated for a Grammy for Best Country Song in 2020.
Other recent credits include “Hummingbird” by Maren Morris, “No Choice” by Ingrid Andress, “Three Whiskeys And The Truth” and “Something Strong” by Little Big Town, “Better Strangers” by Karley Scott Collins, and a sync placement with “The Card You Gamble”–the theme song for the new Fox series Monarch. Rose also has two cuts on Parker McCollum’s upcoming project, and has also penned songs for Tim McGraw, Dan + Shay, Allison Krauss, Blake Shelton, Lee Ann Womack, Chris Young, Bonnie Raitt, and more.
In the midst of a career telling other people’s stories, Rose debuted an album of her own life story, Swimming Alone, in 2016. She serves on the board of directors for the CMA and Nashville Songwriters Association International. A successful publisher, she launched Liz Rose Music with her son, Scott Ponce, in 2010 as a home for burgeoning songwriters.
“I can’t think of a better partner and champion than Warner Chappell to continue this crazy songwriter journey with,” notes Rose. “I look forward to the future with Ben Vaughn and the entire team!”
