Product Description

Like a Rose was a long time coming. Monroe has been creating music for more than half of her life attracting along the way kudos from such music world giants as Dolly Parton, Guy Clark, Vince Gill and Jack White. Her 2013 full-length album release 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 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 over five years ago with another totem of the American song-crafting community, Texan legend Guy Clark.

And fresh it all is. 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.

Review

"Nashville's lovers of traditional country have raved about the Pistol Annies member's staggering talent for years. With this Vince Gill-produced album, by turns hilarious and heartbreaking, everyone can hear what the fuss is about." --USA Today (4/4 stars)

"Ashley Monroe s Like A Rose is the first great album of the year." --Washington Post

"…Like A Rose has the audacious sound of a newcomer whose talent is already in full bloom." --Associated Press

There's something undeniably charming about Ashley Monroe's LIKE A ROSE. And that's an odd thing to say, because with songs like "Weed Instead of Roses" ("Let's put up the teddy bears and pull out the whips and chains"), there's a noticeable lack of charm in the album's content. In fact, the title track is the only truly optimistic tune here, and chugs along at an appropriately addictive pace.

Perhaps the charm comes from hearing some real country music for once--fiddle, steel, and lyrics that cut to the core. On "The Morning After," she bares her soul: "This world can cut a heart so deeply/And we both gave 'til we gave up." "Monroe Suede" is a jaunty "bad girl" ballad; "Two Weeks Late" is a fun, uptempo anti-small town anthem (in the same vein as Kacey Musgraves's "Mary Go 'Round"; and "She's Driving Me Out of Your Mind" is a classic tear-in-your-beer ballad.

The only real misstep here is the closer, "You Ain't Dolly (And You Ain't Porter)," a duet with Blake Shelton. Why Monroe didn't sing with her producer/cowriter Vince Gill is a bit of a mystery (and no, referencing Shelton's gig on "The Voice" isn't a good enough justification for his presence); Shelton is a little too mainstream for this album, and the tune feels almost like an afterthought to the album (it's a good song, but out of place here). Still, for most of its length, LIKE A ROSE is like a postcard from the past; traditional country themes set to traditional country melodies. But there's still a modern backbone, with Monroe unafraid to break down cliches and sneak a peak at the dirt under the carpet. LIKE A ROSE probably won't spawn any hits (she's getting that through her membership in Pistol Annies, at least), but for anyone who likes their country music real and gritty, this album is a winner.

This is country music. It's the equivalent of sipping on fine bourbon. Vince Gill is all over this record. This album should win the Grammy for Best Country Album.

And I'm thrilled that Ashley has finally released a new album. It is as expected, excellent. The songs are well crafted and her voice, well, amazing. I'm a big fan and have been waiting a long time for this release. My only disappointment is the length of the set. 9 songs after such a long wait seems odd to me. I hope this is just the beginning of many great records from Ashley.

I really like this album because I love the "real" country music. Like Patsy Cline.
I heard about this album on NPR and the samples made me want to get it.
I love "You Got Me" "The Morning After" and "Driving Me Out Of Your Mind"
If you like country music by a girl with a beautiful voice, then get this.

I've followed Ashley Monroe's career ever since Itunes featured Satisfied as the free single of the week. I recognized the talent then, but it pales to what she has shown on this album. Those familiar with her previous Satisfied album, will notice the re-recorded track Used. Normally I would criticise a re-hash of previously recorded material, but the maturity and production make what had been a good song, a great song and a highlight of the album. The heart breaking ballads are Monroes strength, but there is fun on this album too. Weed Instead of Roses is sure to bring a smile to your face and You Ain't Dolly (And you Ain't Porter) featuring Blake Shelton is as light hearted as it gets. At this price point, for any country music fan, this album is a no brainer, but once you give it a listen, I think you'll agree it's worth twice that much.

Recently purchased this cd after hearing Ashley with The Pistol Annie's and live in Miami, Ok with Miranda Lambert. Her voice is wonderful and its great to hear some real sounding country music. Defiantly worth your money to purchase this cd; You will love it! I do wish it had " A Life that's Good" on there that was featured on Nashville. -Also a beautiful song!!

About time some one is keeping it pure country with a twang. Do not let Nashville change you Ashley.
Keep it country. I am 61 years old and I remember when the music ran the business out of Nashville, now the business runs the music. Stick to your roots it sounds like you grew up around traditional country music.

Thank God for Miranda Lambert. I've been a fan since Day One, when, after her third place finish on the first season of "Nashville Star", I turned to my friends and predicted that, not only would Sony sign her and nurture and groom her, they would make her a HUGE star!
Now, ten years later, Lambert is unstoppable, with pretty much everything she touches turning to gold (or platinum!).
Case in point...the debut effort from her side group Pistol Annies. I gotta be honest here...I wasn't too thrilled initially about the prospect of said project. I thought it might dilute Lambert's work (And, to tell you the truth, I still think her best material ended up on HELL ON HEELS, thus causing her fourth solo release ~ FOUR THE RECORD ~ to be her weakest overall to date).
However, there's no denying HELL ON HEELS was a whole lot of fun. Better yet, it introduced most of us to two ladies ~ Angaleena Presley and Ashley Monroe ~ who could hold their own with the formidable Lambert, no small feat in itself! Monroe, in particular, impressed me...at times, there was just something about her that reminded me of a young Dolly Parton.
In light of the success of HELL ON HEELS, it was only a matter of time before we saw solo albums pop up. Monroe's LIKE A ROSE is an absolute gem. Yes, the Lambert influence is there (particularly in the lyrics!), but Monroe is definitely her own woman...where Lambert is as much rock as she is country, Monroe is pure country with a dash of pop thrown in. The result? An artist already in full bloom!
Things kick off with the disc's sublime title track.
