Rose Lady’s Top 10

January 5, 2016

cowboybootsRose Lady is the host of Rosie’s Rhythm Room (Tuesday evenings from 8 till 10 p.m.). Her show focuses on a great mix of swing-billy, honky tonk-twang, roots rock n’ blues and her Top 10 for 2015 reflects her seasoned tastes:

Ashley Monroe, The Blade

“She is the gal who launched the powerhouse girl group, The Pistol Annie’s. This is her third album with some serious work on her songwriting skills. She includes sharp emotions and smooth phrasings; it’s hardcore country with some pop and-country and a little bit of Dolly!”

Sarah Gayle Meech, TN Love Song

“This Nashville girl is winner of the Ameripolitan Music Award for Best Outlaw Female! Great country vocals with themes of love, heartache, and loneliness–and it’s good all the way through.”

Hailey Whitters, Black Sheep

“A debut by this Iowa lady with a little bit of Lucinda Williams in her. There’s darkness and deep self-exploration going on, as she spins her lyrics with strong vocals and honesty. I think we are going to be hearing more from her after this gets heard.”

Rodney Crowell and Emmylou Harris, The Traveling Kind

“A great collaboration between two great artists. This is a follow-up to 2013’s Old Yellow Moon, and it’s great to see them re-joined. Old Yellow Moon was the first time they recorded since 1975 when Crowell joined Emmylou’s Hot band. They still have the connection and harmonies.”

Steve Earle and The Dukes, Terraplane

“He continues to be a master storyteller. This album is #16 and a full-on blues album inspired by Texas blues artists Freddy King and Lightnin’ Hopkins. All these styles show up here; some heavy, some light, some electric, some acoustic…always good when the Dukes back him up. This kicks butt all the way! It’s no secret I’m a huge fan of this guy.”

Daniel Romano, If I’ve Only One Time Askin’

“A Canadian hipster with a fairly country album full of pedal steel (my favorite instrument) and strings. Weary, lovelorn, with lots of sway and effective vocals to match. He is quirky, but intoxicating enough to keep ya there.”

Willie Nelson and Merle Haggard, Django and Jimmy

“American country icons with a dual tribute to two heroes: Django, a gypsy jazz guitarist and Jimmy Rodgers, a country-blues singing breakman. They even pay tribute to each other at the same time, covering each other’s tunes. They are both so lovable!”

Pokey LaFarge, Something in the Water

“Singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist with a retro sound, including elements of jazz, ragtime, western swing, and vivid lyrics. This is so much fun! It’s spunky and entertaining. I have a listener who calls me from Chicago regularly who is a big fan and loves that I play Pokey’s music on my show. I’m happy to oblige, but it’s easy to do since I am a Pokey fan.”

Dale Watson, Call Me Insane

“What’s not to love? This is TRUE country here. He continues to keep it real country on all his recordings. His baritone-beltin’, honky-tonkin’, hell-raisin’ has some outlaw country, rockabilly, and Texas swing in it. He can do no wrong in my book; I love everything he’s recorded and his live shows are will and country-crazy fun!”

Malpass Brothers, Malpass Brothers

“This is a traditional country duo endorsed by Merle Haggard. This has some classics and some new material. It’s pure, lonesome harmonies with a bit of Hank Williams and The Louvin Brothers. Just love the purity of their twangy sound.”
