October 16, 2018: Today, Ashley Monroe announced that she will perform at the 2019 Stagecoach Festival. The festival will take place on Friday, April, 26 through Sunday, April 28 at Empire Polo Fields in Indio, CA. Tickets go on sale this Friday, October 19 at 11:00 am PT.
Earlier this year Monroe released her critically-acclaimed, Dave Cobb-produced album Sparrow via Warner Music Nashville. Recently, American Songwriter premiered a live acoustic video of the song “Keys To The Kingdom” that was recorded at YouTube’s Nashville Sessions.
Tomorrow, Monroe will perform with Pistol Annies, her band with Miranda Lambert and Angaleena Presley, at the “2018 CMT Artists of the Year” special. The 9th annual special premieres live from Nashville on Wednesday, October 17 at 8:00 pm ET/PT, only on CMT. Pistol Annies will release their anxiously-awaited third album Interstate Gospel on November 2 via RCA Records Nashville and will make tour stops in Nashville, New York, and Los Angeles in the coming weeks. Tickets are now on sale via their website.
Sparrow, called “her most ambitious, startling and first-to-last engrossing album yet” by the Wall Street Journal, was recorded in Nashville’s historic RCA Studio A. Arriving #1 on iTunes Singer / Songwriter charts, Pitchfork said, “The Nashville singer-songwriter looks backwards to move forward on an album that filters contemporary desires and sorrows through the timeless vernacular of country.” NPR Music said, “What Monroe’s accomplished with Sparrow is both subtle and breathtaking: She’s bent her fluency in the communal languages of folk, country, gospel and pop toward powerfully personal expression. Be prepared to be swept up.”
