    Like A Rose Named Rolling Stone's Best Country Album of 2013

    NASHVILLE, TN – (January 8, 2014) – Reflecting on her highly acclaimed breakout year, Ashley Monroe made this 2013 wrap-up video, shot while on the road with Hunter Hayes. Monroe begins 2014 with three shows in Tennessee beginning tonight, January 8th for the season opener of Music City Roots, the weekly concert and radio show, which fans can stream LIVE at 7pm CST or tune-in to listen on Hippie Radio, 94.5FM. The performance, which will be held in the Loveless Barn at the Loveless Café, will be followed by a performance tomorrow, January 9th for Scenic City Roots in Chattanooga, followed by a performance January 10th at Nashville’s Grand Ole Opry on the infamous Ryman Auditorium stage.

    Ashley Monroe’s Like A Rose was recently named Rolling Stone’s Best Country Album of the Year, capping off a stellar 2013. With the Washington Post calling it “The first great album of the year” upon its release and USA Today raving about her “staggering talent,” noting “With this Vince Gill-produced album…everyone can hear what the fuss is about,” it’s no wonder her solo release, Like A Rose, made the cut on so many “Best Of” lists by top tier tastemaker outlets, included below.
