She's at her best when she not only has a guitar in her hands, but a pencil too. She's 1/3 of Pistol Annies and 1/2 of the "Cherry Sisters." She's a Tennessee gal in a Tennessee town. She's a storyteller / truth seller / good speller. Hers is a regular name to see on the liner notes of the records you love. The first time Ashley Monroe sang at Third Man Records, it was with Wanda Jackson for her "Live at Third Man Records," released at Vault Package #9. The last time Ashley Monroe sang at Third Man Records, it was with Willie Nelson for his special 80th Birthday CMT Crossroads Live at Third Man Records performance, released as Vault Package #17. The next time Ashley Monroe will sing at Third Man Records, it will be to record her very own Live at Third Man Records 12" LP, recorded direct-to-acetate in the Blue Room. And girl, oh girl, it's going to be beautiful.
This performance is part of Music Biz 2015's conference, taking place May 12-14 in Nashville.
