Ashley Monroe Puts Intimate Spin on 'Weed Instead of Roses' – Premiere
Singer performs an acoustic version of song from her recent LP

Pistol Annies member Ashley Monroe recently struck out on her own with the release of her solo album Like a Rose, which included the the raucous stomper "Weed Instead of Roses." Now you can take an exclusive look at Monroe putting an intimate, but plenty cheeky and sweet, spin on a live acoustic rendition of the song. The coquettish hook came to the then 19-year-old singer while she was on her way to a co-writing session with Sally Barris and Jon McElroy.

Ashley Monroe Shows Her Wild Side on 'Like a Rose' – Album Premiere

"I went in and was like, 'Guys, it's the craziest thing. I just heard this title in my head. "Give Me Weed Instead of Roses,'" Monroe recalls. "Jon was like, 'I love it!' and Sally was like, 'Oh, that's funny.' I was like, 'Oh Sally, let's just write it and see what happens.' We wrote this song and somehow it got on one of the compilations to Vince [Gill]! Vince said he wouldn't do the record unless we cut it. I was like 'What are you and Amy [Grant] doing?'"
