Ashley Monroe, 'Weed Instead of Roses'
Never did getting nasty sound so sweet. In this tune, the Pistol Annie is just a gal looking for a little spice in her relationship — by way of some leather, lace and a pair of nice, strong weed goggles. "Every puff, every shot, you're looking better all the time," she sings in crystal-clear twang, contrasting the edgy lyrics with a classic hillbilly boogie. The song was a cut off her 2013 solo record, Like a Rose, and wilted on conservative country radio. But it showed strong songwriting chops and that maybe Monroe, not bandmate Miranda Lambert, just might be the raciest Annie of them all.
