ASHLEY MONROE performed her song “The Blade” during a recent appearance at The Grand Ole Opry. Here is a great video of it. Her husband, John Danks, plays for the White Sox… btw. She is 28 years old, and doing great…we first heard of her when she was with the Pistol Annies along with Miranda Lambert. She actually has been at this music thing for some time though… As a young girl growing up in Knoxville, Tenn., Ashley studied piano, sang in church and even won a talent competition at the mountain resort town of Pigeon Forge, Tenn., where her parents performed five nights a week. Music had always been a force in her life, but when she lost her father to cancer as a 13-year-old, it became her salvation. After 13 years in Music City, Ashley has carved out a place for herself as one of Nashville’s true talents, not to mention team players.

She is a true talent.
