An Evening with Liz Rose

moderated by Scott Goldman

Liz Rose is a GRAMMY-winning songwriter, 2007 SESAC Nashville Songwriter of the Year, and founder of music publishing company Liz Rose Music. In 2015, Rose’s song “Girl Crush,” performed by Little Big Town, won Song Of The Year at the Country Music Association Awards and won the 2016 GRAMMY for Best Country Song.

Rose was a frequent collaborator of Taylor Swift’s, having co-penned 16 songs together, 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" and “White Horse” (which won the 2010 GRAMMY for Best Country Song). Rose was also the recipient of the 2012 ACM Award for “Song of the Year” in honor of Eli Young Band’s “Crazy Girl.” Rose has also penned songs for many other artists including Tim McGraw, Dan and Shay, Allison Krauss, Blake Shelton, LeeAnn Womack, Chris Young, and more.  She has the current Tyler Farr single “Our Town.”

Liz Rose is not only a songwriter, but a successful publisher. She began as a publisher before signing her first songwriting deal with Jody Williams Music. Soon after she had three simultaneous songs on the country charts, one of which was Gary Allan’s hit “Songs About Rain.” In 2010, Rose launched Liz Rose Music with her son Scott Ponce as a home for burgeoning songwriters. The company’s roster now includes Alyssa Bagley, Phil Barton, Corey Crowder, Seth Ennis, Emily Shackelton, and her daughter, Caitlin Rose.

GRAMMY Museum Mississippi is pleased to welcome Liz Rose to the Sanders Soundstage on Friday, March 3 for an intimate conversation and performance moderated by Scott Goldman, Vice President of the GRAMMY Foundation and MusiCares.
