Nashville-based country singer Caitlin Rose is set to release her second album, The Stand-In, March 5th on ATO Records. Blending pedal steel guitar with jumpy pop beats and rich instrumentation, the album produces a much different sound from Rose's previous albums. Through her indie-leaning yet twanging vocals, Rose reveals a talent for conveying her emotions through opaque narratives instead of straightforward confessionals.

The more dramatic elements of The Stand-In have led Rose to previously describe the album as her "first attempt at a high kick." The rollicking, rock-leaning opener "No One to Call" is certainly a diversion from past modesty; the swooning, lovestruck ballad "Pink Champagne" holds a retro, sweet roots simplicity in vein of Loretta Lynn. It's a touching yet audacious effort throughout.
