Commented ASCAP EVP Membership John Titta: “Meghan has made incomparable strides in her career in the time that I’ve known her, but it has always been clear that her talent would take her above and beyond the pop charts. Whether she’s writing chart-topping songs for herself or someone else, we can’t wait to hear what Meghan does next.”

Aside from her own hits, including “All About That Bass,” “Lips Are Movin’,” “Dear Future Husband,” “Like I’m Gonna Lose You,” “NO” and “Me Too,” Trainor, who is managed by Jeffrey Azoff and Tommy Bruce at Full Stop Management, has written or co-written hit country songs for Rascal Flatts (“I Like the Sound of That”) and Lauren Alaina (“Road Less Traveled”), as well as Jennifer Lopez, and Fifth Harmony.
