Warner/Chappell Music has signed a worldwide co-publishing agreement with songwriter Liz Rose and publishing company Liz Rose Music.
Rose was the recipient of the 2012 ACM Award for Song of the Year in honor of Eli Young Band’s “Crazy Girl,” and was a SESAC Nashville Songwriter of the Year. Additionally, Rose is 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), and “White Horse” (which won the 2010 Grammy Award for Best Country Song).
“Our lineup of songwriters at Liz Rose Music will benefit greatly from Warner/Chappell’s expertise and massive network of industry contacts,” said Rose. “This is a fantastic partnership and we’re ecstatic to join forces with such a highly-regarded company.”
“Liz Rose is a highly-sought after name in the global songwriting community, and rightly so,” said Ben Vaughn, Executive Vice President, Warner/Chappell Nashville. “Liz has been a part of so many hits. Her co-writers value her insight and absolutely appreciate the dedication she brings to every room she is in. We are proud to partner with her, Scott Ponce, Natalie Harker and the songwriters that she has so smartly brought into her family. Liz Rose Music and Warner/Chappell complement each other well, and together we’ll continue to create impactful music and meaningful careers for our songwriters.”
Rose has also penned songs for many other artists including Tim McGraw, Alison Krauss, Hunter Hayes, Little Big Town, LeAnn Rimes, Jewel, and more. In 2010, Rose launched Liz Rose Music with her son Scott Ponce. The company’s roster includes songwriters Emily Shackelton, Jeff Middleton, Jesse Walker, Chuck Wicks and Stephony Smith.
Rose has three children and splits time between her home state of Texas, and Nashville, where her company is headquartered.
