Liz Rose to be inducted into Songwriters Hall of Fame
The woman who co-wrote "You Belong With Me" belongs with Sade, Snoop Dogg and Gloria Estefan.
Nashville songwriter Liz Rose will be inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame later this year, as part of a class that includes those stars as well as Glen Ballard, Jeff Lynne and Teddy Riley.
Rose is best known for being one of Taylor Swift's closest collaborators in the star's early years. Together, the pair also wrote "Teardrops on My Guitar," "White Horse" and "All Too Well" (nominated for Song of the Year at next month's Grammys).
Her other co-compositions include Little Big Town’s “Girl Crush," Eli Young Band’s “Crazy Girl” and Carrie Underwood’s “Cry Pretty.”
Rose's induction arrives in her very first year of eligibility. The ceremony is set for June 15 at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York City.
She's also the founder of Nashville publishing company Liz Rose Music, which now has 13 writers on its roster. Rose's recent work includes cuts with Parker McCollum, Lauren Alaina and Alana Springsteen.
“Every time I think I'm washed up, something amazing pops up,” she told The Tennessean last month. “And that's why I still write every day, because you just never know.”
