Singer-Songwriter Caitlin Rose’s First Musical Love Certainly Wasn’t Country


Air Date: Tuesday, April 9 @2:00pm EST.

Caitlin Rose is rightfully the current darling of the new young Nashville. She has just released The Stand-In her second album. Caitlin may have moved to Nashville when she was 7 but she resisted country music at first mostly because her parents worked in the industry. Indie rock was more her music. In fact she discovered Merle Haggard through a Mountain Goats record. It was through a contact in England that she got to make her first album Own Side Now. Her deft personal lyrics and her melodic sense drive these songs.

In this session we’ll talk with Caitlin about how the city has changed and hear a live set with her band. Don’t forget our web extra track “Pink Champagne.” You can pick it up over at NPR.org/music We also have two videos below. One is a solo acoustic version of “Like A Peach” and the other is a sordid account of our afternoon into evening bar crawl. Caitlin definitely knows where Nashville best drinking establishments are!
