Ashley Monroe got some good news earlier this week. Her duet with Blake Shelton, Lonely Tonight, reached the number one spot on the Billboard country radio chart. That’s a big accomplish for any artists although Blake has done it about 20 times in a row now.
And Ashley has a new single out and it’s her catchiest one yet. I think this could be the first one of her solo songs to reach the top ten on the charts.
On To Something Good – Ashley Monroe
There is just nobody out there in country music with a voice like Ashley. You could always tell in the Pistol Annies and on the single with Blake that she had a unique country voice. It’s something that’s kind of wispy yet strong. And you just feel like you want to hang out with her for a while.
I’ve tried to listen to lyrics a few times. It seems to be about something good that’s going on in the person’s life. But the catch is she’s wondering how long it will last. She’s wondering if maybe the train will run out of track so she’s going to enjoy it all while she can.
Maybe that’s not what’s going on in the song. You’ll have to let me know what’s going on. It could be about love. It could be about life.
Things are going pretty good right now for Ashley Monroe and this song has a killer melody that I think people at radio are going to love.
