She developed a passion for writing songs, discovering that she could easily communicate her thoughts and sentiments through a six-string and her dynamic, exceptional voice.Shortly thereafter tragedy struck, upending the young girl’s world."Every track will cut you in a different way," Monroe says, nodding to the album's title.Due July 24th, The Blade is the follow-up to 2013's critically acclaimed Like a Rose, which included the sublime — and alternatingly bawdy and poignant — singles "Weed Instead of Roses," "You Got Me" and the title track.“It came to me when I was about 17 and my manager at the time had just bought me this old 1950s Gibson guitar,” she says.It came into my mind that things are worth more used, and I thought about my mom, who had lost my dad when she was 38.Says Ashley, “It’s about an addiction to something—one thing or another, whether you’re stuck in a bad relationship or alcohol or whatever it is—and you try to hide it and fight it but you’re kind of saying, ‘Alright, you got me.’ On a more light-hearted note is “Monroe Suede,” based on “a slick character that tries to get away all the time.” Another is the self-explanatory “Dolly & Porter,” a duet featuring Lambert’s husband, CMA Entertainer of the Year Blake Shelton.“Morning After” confronts that uneasy feeling that often follows a too-good time and “She’s Driving Me Out Of Your Mind,” written with Jon Randall Stewart, comes straight from one of Ashley’s many journals.

Monroe spent her childhood in Knoxville, Tennessee, where she immersed herself in all varieties of music ranging from country—she’s not-too-distantly related to members of the legendary Carter Family—to rock, pop, rap and even opera.
When she was 11, Monroe won a talent contest singing “I Want To Be a Cowboy’s Sweetheart” and two years later her father gave Ashley her first guitar.
“Two Weeks Late” was suggested by singer-songwriter Shane Mc Anally, who co-wrote it with Monroe.
