Liz Rose has extended her publishing agreement with Warner Chappell Music and her publishing company, Liz Rose Music. The Grammy-winning songwriter is the co-writer of countless hit songs including Taylor Swift’s “You Belong with Me,” Little Big Town’s “Girl Crush” and Eli Young Band’s “Crazy Girl,” among others.

“Words matter and the words that Liz Rose has put into the musical songbook have really mattered,” said Ben Vaughn, president & CEO, WCM Nashville, in a statement. “She is the force behind so many songs that have won the coveted song of the year award at all of the major music award shows. She is unstoppable, unflappable, and we are so happy to continue our partnership.”

Rose launched her publishing company in 2010 with her son Scott Ponce. The current roster includes Joe Fox, Phil Barton, Emily Shackelton, Seth Ennis, Cameron Bedell, Alyssa Micaela, Nick Boyd, Cassidy Daniels, and Caitlin Rose, with writer catalogs from Corey Crowder, Jesse Walker, Jeff Middleton, Chuck Wicks, and Stephony Smith.

“Over the past six years, Ben and everyone at Warner Chappell have been the best partners I could have asked for,” Rose said in a statement. “I look forward to exploring even more opportunities for my music and for the music from all of our wonderful songwriters at Liz Rose Music."
