Liz Rose (born in Dallas, Texas) is an American country music songwriter best known for her work with Taylor Swift. She has co-written twenty of Swift's officially-released songs and singles, including "White Horse," "Teardrops on My Guitar," and "You Belong with Me," which won her and Swift a Grammy Award in 2010.

Biography[edit]

Liz Rose was born in Dallas, Texas and raised in Irving, Texas.[1] Rose moved to Nashville, Tennessee with her then-husband, Johnny Rose, and began writing songs through the suggestion of a friend. One of her first cuts was "Elisabeth," which was recorded by Billy Gilman.[1] In 2003, Gary Allan took Rose's "Songs About Rain" (co-written with Pat McLaughlin) into the country top 20.[1]

Rose began writing songs with Taylor Swift on Swift's 2006 self-titled debut album, on which Rose has seven co-writer's credits.[2] Among those cuts were the album's first two singles, "Tim McGraw" and "Teardrops on My Guitar," which helped Rose win a Songwriter of the Year award from SESAC in 2007.[3]

Rose continued to collaborate with Swift on her second album, 2008's Fearless, collaborating on the singles "White Horse" and "You Belong with Me"[4] as well as the title track. "White Horse" won both of them the Grammy Award for Best Country Song in 2010,[5] and "You Belong with Me" was nominated for Song of the Year.[6]

On Swift's fourth album, 2012's Red, Rose co-wrote one song, entitled "All Too Well."[7]

She has also worked with songwriting for Swedish country singer Jill Johnson[8] and Nashville-based band Mockingbird Sun, co-writing their second single "Lucky Guy."[9]

She was nominated for Song Of The Year and Best Country Song again in 2016 for her work on the song Girl Crush performed by Little Big Town. She won Best Country Song.

She also contributed to Carrie Underwood's Storyteller album with the song "Like I'll Never Love You Again."

Her daughter is country/Americana artist Caitlin Rose.[10]
