Fashion is Ashley Monroe’s co-star in this exclusive behind-the-scenes look at her new single, “On to Something Good.” (Watch above.) In fact, if you make a drinking game out of her wardrobe changes, you might be seeing double by the end of the clip. The chic country star goes from old Hollywood glamour to bohemian goddess to modern-day disco queen during the Los Angeles-area shoot, matching her songwriting prowess with some serious catwalk skills.
“On to Something Good” is the first single from the Tennessee’s native’s next album, tentatively due this spring. Monroe tells Rolling Stone Country that the song’s title is simply how she felt during its writing session with Barry Dean and Luke Laird.
“I like that the song is hopeful and it’s saying, ‘Hey, we’ve all been there,'” she relates. “We all know what it’s like to be down and out, but there’s hope if you keep on going. And if you do, you will be on to something good.”
Monroe is a co-writer on every track of the upcoming album, with Justin Niebank and Vince Gill as its co-producers. Gill was also at the helm of Monroe’s breakout Like a Rose LP, Rolling Stone’s pick for the best country album of 2013.
“That’s who gets me completely,” the singer tells Radio.com of Gill, whom she met when she was just 15 years old. “He gets exactly what my soul is, he gets exactly what my voice is.”
Gill’s youngest daughter, Corrina, lends her vocals to another song on the project, “I Buried Your Love Alive,” which Monroe co-wrote with Matraca Berg (“Strawberry Wine,” “You and Tequila”).
The official video for “On to Something Good” will be out in the coming weeks.
