Prior to achieving massive success with her album, Title, and its smash singles “All About That Bass” and “Lips Are Movin,” Trainor was a high school prodigy who came to Nashville after scoring a publishing deal at the age of 17. While there, she co-wrote tracks for major acts such as Rascal Flatts and Hunter Hayes before breaking through on her own after deciding to record “All About That Bass” herself.
Many people think Meghan was an overnight success, but she has actually been working in the music business for several years, a lot of that time in Nashville, now, we’re thrilled to recognize her incredible talent in the city where her songwriting kicked into high gear.
Meghan had this to say: “I’d like to thank the Music Business Association for this great honor,” said Trainor. “When I first wrote ‘All About That Bass,’ I had no idea that it would completely change my life, but I’m glad that the song’s message of self-empowerment has caught on. I’m excited to accept this Award.”
