Ashley Monroe Like A Rose on LP
One-Third of the Pistol Annies Alongside Miranda Lambert & Angeleena Presley!
Like a Rose has been a long time coming. Ashley Monroe has been creating music for more than half of her life - attracting along the way kudos from such music world luminaries as Dolly Parton, Guy Clark, Vince Gill and Jack White. Her new, full-length album serves both to fill in the back-story and impart to us who she is today. At times her songs are dead serious, at others utterly hilarious, but always Monroe is an original with a compelling story to share.
Some of the songs were newly written for the album; others date back several years and felt right to revisit. The semi-autobiographical title track, one of the uncontestable highlights of the set, was co-written about six years ago with another totem of the American song-crafting community, Texan legend Guy Clark. Blake Shelton also makes an appearance here on a duet with Monroe on "You Ain’t Dolly (And You Ain’t Porter)."
Produced by Vince Gill and Justin Niebank, Like a Rose avoids the trappings of too much contemporary music by sticking to the basics: memorable songs, incredible musicians, a superb voice, all of it captured honestly and without frills. As the saying goes, sometimes we need to stop and smell the roses. Take a whiff of Like a Rose and you’ll find it smells pretty darn sweet!
