Monroe may be best-known as one third of the country trio Pistol Annies (along with Miranda Lambert and Angaleena Presley), but she has released an exceptional solo studio album "Like a Rose" via her record label, Warner Music Nashville. She also sings with Pat Monahan from the rock band Train on their duet "Bruises."
She co-wrote her new single with Sally Barris and Jon McElroy. The video for "Weed Instead of Roses" is well-crafted and it has a 60s traditional country vibe to it, where Monroe's crystalline vocals are sassy and reminiscent to those of country songstress Lee Ann Womack.
The Verdict
Overall, Ashley Monroe is one of country music's most underrated talents. Her vocals are fresh and hopefully, this will be the song that will help propel her popularity into the mainstream audience. Her album "Like A Rose" is flawless in its entirety and she puts on great live shows.
