I don’t think I’ve posted anything on the Dolly-end of the country spectrum over the past 5 months, so let’s rectify that today.
This is awesome Tennessee songstress Ashley Monroe with an ode to getting wasted and having kinky loving with your significant squeeze – the glorious Weed Instead Of Roses. Now I know there’s nothing super-original about the style/genre or even the subject matter here, but it’s done with such panache that I think I’m actually incapable of disliking it.
If you like it too, her 2013 album Like A Rose is well worth a listen to, as is her band work in the ace all-female country trio Pistol Annies. Oh, and what a voice – crystal clear, razor sharp and brimming with sassy southern attitude.
Nice work on the retro style video too
