LIZ ROSE


Liz Rose SESAC's 2007 Writer of the Year, began her music industry career by opening an independent music publishing and song plugging company in 1996. A few years later, Liz signed to Jody Williams Music as a writer, and also as a song plugger.

In 2004 Liz scored with 3 songs on the country charts simultaneously. Gary Allan's "Songs About Rain" co-written with Pat McLaughlin, Lee Ann Womack's "The Wrong Girl" also with McLaughlin, and Chely Wright's "Back of the Bottom Drawer" co-written with Chely Wright.

Liz has had cuts by Trisha Yearwood, Bonnie Raitt, Tim McGraw, Terri Clark, Rebecca Lynn Howard, Josh Turner, Steve Holy, Walt Wilkins, Dean Miller, Lisa Brokop, Jypsi, Kellie Pickler, Billy Gilman, Lori McKenna, Jason Michael Carroll and many others. One of Liz's specialties is working with newer artists who write, focusing on what the artist wants to say while having a keen idea of what works at radio.

Liz hit a home run by working with then unknown Taylor Swift and co-writing 7 of the 11 songs on her unbelievable debut 4x Multi Platinum album for Big Machine Records, scoring a number one with "Teardrops on My Guitar". Other hits co-written by Liz from Swift's debut set include "Tim McGraw" and "Picture To Burn", the latter earning a BMI award for most performed song in November 2009.

Liz also co-wrote 4 songs on Swift's current 6x Multi Platinum album Fearless, including "White Horse", "You Belong With Me", "Tell Me Why" and the title track "Fearless". "White Horse" hit the number one spot on MediaBase's country airplay chart in 2009, while going on to win the Grammy for Best Country Song during the January 31, 2010 Grammy Awards telecast. "White Horse" also received a most performed song award at the SESAC Awards in November 2009. "You Belong with Me" became a multi-genre, multi-chart smash, which introduced Liz to the rest of the world as a writing force to be reckoned with.

In October 2009 Big Machine Records released the "Deluxe Platinum Edition" of Fearless, which featured two new Liz Rose co-writes with Taylor, "Come In With The Rain" and "Superstar".
