Ashley Monroe in session

Ashley Monroe is Bob's session guest, recorded live on Nashville's Music Row.

You may never have heard of Ashley Monroe, but you will. At 27 she's poised to become one of country music's biggest names, with a pedigree that includes writing No 1 hits for Miranda Lambert & recording Rolling Stone magazine's 2013 country album of the year, "Like A Rose", an accolade repeated by the Hollywood Reporter, the New York Times & Billboard.

As if that wasn't enough, along with Lambert and Angaleena Presley, Monroe is one third of the Pistol Annies, and has placed a number of her songs in the TV series "Nashville", including the memorable duet "You Ain't Dolly".

Tonight she plays two songs live and discusses her career.
