ole Wins Two SESAC Awards For Liz Rose/Taylor Swift Hits
Nashville, TN: ole is proud to be the recipient of two SESAC Nashville Music Awards for the chart-topping Taylor Swift hits "Picture To Burn" and "Teardrops On My Guitar."
Co-written with Swift by 2007 SESAC Songwriter of the Year Liz Rose, ole was awarded a Country Performance Activity Award for "Picture To Burn" and a Recurrent Country Performance Activity Award for "Teardrops On My Guitar."
"Teardrops" was also named BMI Country Song of the Year at the 2008 BMI Country Awards.
The Liz Rose publishing share of both Swift hits was recently purchased by ole as part of the Jody Williams Music catalogue.
Rose co-wrote four songs on Fearless, which topped both The Billboard 200 and Top Country Albums charts this past week with U.S. sales of 597,000 copies.
Three of Rose's four contributions are published by ole through their recent purchase of the Jody Williams Music catalogue: "Fearless" (co-written with Taylor Swift and Hillary Lindsey); "Tell Me Why" and "White Horse," (both co-written with Swift).
Over 18 million fans of the hit ABC series Grey's Anatomy recently enjoyed an advance preview of "White Horse" when the song debuted on the show's fifth season premiere on September 25, 2008.
Taylor Swift's Fearless success comes hot on the heels of her 2006 self-titled debut Big Machine album - which featured seven ole-published Rose co-writes, including the chart-topping hits "Tim McGraw," "Picture To Burn" and "Teardrops On My Guitar" - has sold more almost 4 million copies in the U.S. alone and topped the Billboard Top Country Albums chart for 25 weeks earlier this year.
Rose also contributed material to Swift's million-selling, chart-topping Beautiful Eyes EP released earlier this year.
Originally from Irving, Texas, Rose has called Franklin, Tennessee home for the past 15 years, shifting from song plugger to songwriter when she joined Jody Williams Music Publishing several years ago.
Swift was an aspiring 14-year-old recording artist when Rose began their collaboration.
Since then, Rose's songs have been covered by Tim McGraw, Trisha Yearwood, Bonnie Raitt, Terri Clark, Lee Ann Womack and Billy Gilman.
Rose also co-wrote the Top 20 Gary Allan hit "Songs About Rain" and is currently climbing the charts with the ole-published Jewel single "Till It Feels Like Cheating."
ole is proud to be associated with a songwriter like Liz Rose and great songs like BMI Country Song of the Year "Teardrops On My Guitar, "White Horse," and "Picture To Burn."
