Ashley Monroe makes her Warner Nashville debut with her first solo album Like A Rose, available on iTunes today.
Like A Rose has been 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 new, 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.
Ashley Monroe, of the critically acclaimed trio Pistol Annies, will perform the title track, “Like A Rose,” from her forthcoming March 5th Warner Bros. Records release on NBC’s The Tonight Show with Jay Leno on March 11.

Most folks, as soon as they hear Ashley Monroe, instantly recognize one thing: she’s the real deal. Her songs resonate so profoundly because they reflect the experiences of an artist who, although she is just 26, has already seen both the best and worst that life has to offer.
