With a cream pantsuit jacket contrasting the steel and mahogany strapped around her shoulder last night (June 9), Ashley Monroe broke a few hearts at Nashville’s 3rd and Lindsley.
Her wedding diamond sparkled on her hand, cautioning too affectionate admirers, while her songs told a similar story of heartache and desire.
With an easy saunter in snakeskin ankle boots, she took the mic and introduced “I Buried Your Love Alive,” a song from her forthcoming Vince Gill and Justin Niebank produced sophomore effort, available July 24 via Warner Bros.
“I love sad songs,” proclaimed Monroe. “Makes you feel stuff, don’t it?”
She toured through her Pistol Annies days, performing “Unhappily Married” and the No. 1 “Heart Like Mine,” co-written with best friend Miranda Lambert.
A five-member band, complete with stand-up bass, backed her on new material including “If The Devil Don’t Want Me,” “Bombshell,” “Winning Streak,” and “Mayflowers.”
“Here’s a fast song, get ready,” teased the 28-year-old talent, introducing her upbeat single “On To Something Good.” She continued with outstanding new titles, including the easy ride of “If Love Was Fair,” and “The Blade,” a freshly-written perspective on a broken heart.
Longtime manager John Grady ushered Monroe back to the stage for an encore of “Weed Instead of Roses” and an acoustic finale of “Hickory Wind.”
The evening was professionally recorded, and broadcast live by Yahoo!
