From her earliest singles in the mid-2000s, Ashley Monroe bent country music to her will. Whether she was singing about grief over her father's death, the complicated joy of motherhood, or just a simple crush, she took old, familiar sounds and gussied them up to express something particular and deeply personal. As a result, her music often feels as meaningful and as confessional as her lyrics.

Ashley Monroe is a twice Grammy nominated country artist (both solo and as a member of Pistol Annies), but on Rosegold she gives up a steady backbeat in favor of breakbeats and drops. Monroe is noted for her vocal prowess, and that no doubt carries over to Rosegold, but the migration from honky-tonk dancehall to bedroom pop to the nightclub floor yields a mixed bag of results. Part of the issue stems from working with six different producers across 10 tracks, most of whom are cited for their country music pedigrees.
