She’s at her best when she not only has a guitar in her hands, but a pencil too. She’s 1/3 of Pistol Annies, 1/2 of the Cherry Sisters, 2 parts sugar, 1 part spice. She‘s an East Tennessee gal in a Middle Tennessee town with a new record out and a Grammy nomination to show for it. She’s a storyteller/truth seller/good speller. Hers is a regular name to see on the liner notes of the records you love, and it wouldn’t be a surprise if you love the records you love because her name is on the liner notes.
Ashley Monroe is the name, and she’s no stranger to the stage of the Blue Room at Third Man Records. The first time Ashley Monroe sang at Third Man, it was with Wanda Jackson for her Live at Third Man Records LP released as part of Vault Package #9. The next time Ashley Monroe sang at Third Man Records, it was with Willie Nelson for his special 80th Birthday CMT Crossroads Live at Third Man Records performance, released as Vault Package #17. The last time Ashley Monroe sang at Third Man Records, it was May 2015 to record her very own Live at Third Man Records 12″ LP, recorded direct-to-acetate in the Blue Room. The record will officially be released and available at a record store near you Friday, February 26th, but you can snag a listen to this dazzling delight right here:
