Like Eaglesmith, Monroe proclaims "I Like Trains"

Friday, March 29, 2024 – Ashley Monroe released a reinvented version of Fred Eaglesmith's "I Like Trains," her first release of new music this year.

This is Monroe's follow-up to her late 2023 single "Over Everything."

Monroe has also announced her first Nashville headlining show since 2015 at Eastside Bowl on April 23 alongside her close friends and collaborators Shelby Lynne, Brendan Benson, Meg McCree and Ben Chapman. Monroe will also head to the UK this September to support Little Big Town on their "Friends of Mine" tour.

Monroe said, "From the time I heard Fred Eaglesmith's songs years ago, I was hooked. This has always been one of my favorite songs of his. Something deep inside of me feels haunted when I sing it. I recorded this sitting on the front porch of a cabin in the Smokies, and let all the critters sing it with me."

Over the past two years, Monroe has been writing and collaborating, most recently appearing on Ben Chapman's single "Is It Ever Really Gone" and co-writing Miranda Lambert and Leon Bridges' "If You Were Mine." Her last full-length release was her 2021 album Rosegold."

April 23 – Nashville, TN – Eastside Bowl – Ashley Monroe & Friends

She received praise for her first proper solo album (her ill-fated Satisfied" was released three years after its completion by her former label, Sony), "Like a Rose," in 2013, although that was a release that stood on the strength of the songs because three singles produced zero hits. ...
CD review - Like A Rose From the time the needle lands on the first groove of this album, with its plucky guitar and whirling accordion, until the raucous nod-and-a-wink of the roaring honky-tonk call-and-response of the final song, You Ain't Dolly (And You Ain't Porter), Ashley Monroe's pure country voice, reminiscent of Elizabeth Cook and Dolly Parton, grabs you. Gilded in soft beauty of Vince Gill's and Michael Rhodes' thumping guitars and Paul Franklin's luscious steel licks, the ...
