Liz Rose Writers Night
The Listening Room Cafe
Wed, Apr 17 8:30 pm


A native of Irving, Texas, Liz Rose moved to Nashville in 1994, and once her children enrolled in school, she pursued a career in songwriting. Rose wrote hits for Gary Allan and Lee Ann Womack before she became a writing partner to Taylor Swift, collaborating frequently with her during the singer’s rise to stardom. Rose was named SESAC Songwriter of the Year in 2007 after co-writing seven songs on Swift’s debut album, including “Tim McGraw,” “Teardrops on My Guitar,” and “Picture to Burn.” Rose and Swift also wrote the #1 song “You Belong to Me” and the Grammy-winning “White Horse.” Rose’s profile as a songwriter rose further when she won the 2012 ACM trophy for Song of Year for “Crazy Girl,” recorded by the Eli Young Band. She co-wrote Little Big Town’s “Girl Crush,” which spent thirteen weeks at #1 on a Billboard country chart in 2015. “Girl Crush” won a Grammy for Best Country Song and a CMA nod for Song of the Year. In 2018, Rose supplied Carrie Underwood with “Cry Pretty” and Kenny Chesney with “Better Boat.”
