Among her many credits, Rose has landed No.1 hits for artists like Taylor Swift (You Belong with Me), Little Big Town (Girl Crush), and Eli Young Band (Crazy Girl).
A veteran songwriter, Rose has taken home the Song of the Year prize at the 2010 BMI Country Awards for You Belong With Me (Taylor Swift), the 2011 ACM Awards for Crazy Girl (Eli Young Band), and the 2015 CMA’s for Girl Crush (Little Big Town).

The roster currently 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.
