Exclusive: Maggie Rose on the murderous “Preacher’s Daughter,” shedding her girl-next-door image and singing the National Anthem

Maggie Rose
Country-blues singer Maggie Rose wants you to know that she's not your typical girl-next-door type, as evidenced by her song "Mostly Bad," on her debut record Cut to Impress. Released earlier this year, the record has already created quite a bit of buzz for the blonde belter around Nashville, even becoming an integral part of the new generation of females.

Nashville Gab recently spoke with Rose about her current single "Better" and what a blessing the song has turned out to be, as well as the dark story behind the murderous "Preacher's Daughter" and what she did to shed the good girl image on her album (and much more).

Rachele Lynae grew up in Alaska, an unlikely place for an aspiring Country singer, but she owes her life to the off-beat upbringing. Early on, she performed in church and even pursued Christian music a few years ago. Country music, however, beckoned her to Nashville, and she hasn't looked back since.

Nashville Gab recently chatted with Lynae about working with O'Neal and what her fans can expect from her debut album, as well as her major influences growing up and the inspiration for her new single (and much more).

Jared Ashley

Jared Ashley received his first guitar when he was five years old. So, it isn't any wonder that the singer-songwriter has found himself as a steady musician in Music City. With the recent announcement that he's signed with Buddy Lee Attractions for booking representation, Ashley (who is signed to Blaster Records) is poised to usher in the new generation of leading men.

Nashville Gab had the chance to sit down with the rising star about his debut single, as well as his Nashville Star past and what current artists he's impressed with (and much more).
