Ashley Monroe Gets Downright Sultry With ‘Hands On You’
Country music is a wide genre and that’s OK I don’t even know what genre this record is but I know it’s me
There is something about the way Ashley Monroe delivers a song that makes you fall head first into every note. Her television debut of “Hands on You” on Late Night with Seth Meyers on Monday (May 14) sucked viewers in. The seductive and sensual masterpiece is off Monroe’s brand new album Sparrow, which perfectly serves as a representation of the woman Monroe has grown into being both personally and professionally. “Country music is a wide genre, and that’s OK,” Monroe says of her new project. “I don’t even know what genre this record is, but I know it’s me.”
Monroe heads to the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum on June 9 to participate as part of their popular Songwriter Session series. During the appearance, Monroe will not only sing songs from the new album, including “Hands on You,” but also be interviewed about her songwriting philosophies. The other thing that has Monroe on everyone’s radar is the likely possibility of her joining forces again with her Pistol Annies bandmates Miranda Lambert and Angaleena Presley. In March,the trio whet fans’ appetites with a mini-reunion at a Kentucky stop on Lambert’s Livin’ Like Hippies Tour. The group — radio songs include “Hell on Heels” and “Takin’ Pills” — have been dropping many a hint that they just might be about to release new music.
