Pistol Annies member Ashley Monroe is ready to venture out on her own with the release of her first solo album, Like a Rose, on March 5th through Warner Nashville. Now you can listen to the album cut "Weed Instead of Roses," an arch, tantalizing country tune about a stale relationship in desperate need of some herbal help. It finds Monroe cooing to her beau, "Go call your no-good brother/ We both know what he's been growing/ I'll be waiting with the whipped cream/ And baby, let's get going."

“Long Walk Home”

Bruce Springsteen | 2007

When the subject of this mournful song returns home, he hardly recognizes his town. Springsteen told Rolling Stone the alienation the man feels is a metaphor for life in a politically altered post-9/11 America. “Who would have ever thought we’d live in a country without habeas corpus?” he said. “That’s Orwellian. That’s what political hysteria is about and how effective it is. I felt it in myself. You get frightened for your family, for your home. And you realize how countries can move way off course, very far from democratic ideals.”
