Caitlin Rose schedules March CD debut

Thursday, November 11, 2010 – Nashville singer Caitlin Rose's full-length debut, "Own Side Now," will be released on March 15, 2011 on Theory 8 Records.

Rose co-produced the record with Mark Nevers (Lambchop, Will Oldham & Andrew Bird) and Skylar Wilson (Justin Townes Earle). Thirty Tigers/RED will distribute the disc in the U.S.

"Own Side Now" was released in Europe in August. Rose, 23, has spent the most of time since the release touring in Europe. She'll do 13 dates with Justin Townes Earle later this year and will have a full U.S. tour around the release of the record.

Rose draws on her love for the female greats such as Linda Ronstadt and Stevie Nicks (covering Fleetwood Mac's That's Alright) as well as those from a pure country lineage such as Patsy Cline. Her "Dead Flowers" EP was self-released several years ago.

Rose comes from musical genes. Her mother is songwriter Liz Rose, who has written many songs with Taylor Swift. Her father, Johnny, has been in the music business for decades, including with Show Dog Records, Toby Keith's label.

Songs on the CD are:
1. Learnin' To Ride
2. Own Side
3. For The Rabbits
4. Shanghai Cigarettes
5. New York
6. Spare Me
7. Things Change
8. That's Alright
9. Sinful Wishing Well
10. Comin' Up
