Born in Alabama into a musical family, Allison Veltz Cruz grew up moving around frequently. However, the one constant in her life was music. “My biggest musical inspiration is the FM radio,” she says. Her passion for songs ultimately led her to Music City in 2011, where she quickly notched her first #1 platinum song “Mr. Taxi” recorded by K-pop group, Girls’ Generation.
Since then, she’s topped the Billboard Country charts with Matt Stell’s platinum, two-week no. 1 “Prayed For You” and Tenille Arts’ platinum hit “Somebody Like That,” which made country music history as the first country no. 1 to be written, performed and produced by all females. Additional cuts include Jason Aldean, Maddie and Tae, Lady A, Carly Pearce, High Valley, Megan Patrick, Michael Ray, Sacha, Drake White, Tanner Adell, and many more.
Allison’s impressive catalog has earned her national recognition, including the 2020 AIMP (Association of Independent Music Publishers) Rising Songwriter of the Year Award. Most recently, she signed with Universal Music Publishing Group for an exclusive global publishing deal.
