Country singer-songwriter Ashley Monroe unveiled her soft and swoon-worthy ballad “Has Anybody Ever Told You” at the Grand Ole Opry on April 29th. With earnest lyrics and a Dolly Parton-style vocal, “Has Anybody Ever Told You” heralds a lot of promise for her new album, which will follow on the heels of 2013’s critically-acclaimed Like a Rose.
“Has Anybody Ever Told you” is a mellow and heartfelt melody reminiscent of country ballads of yore, but Monroe delivers the song with a refreshing and honest performance that makes the tune feel entirely fresh.
The winner of our bi-monthly lyric contest will have the opportunity to co-write a song with Monroe, record a demo at Omni Sound Studios, and will be profiled in an upcoming issue of American Songwriter. To learn more about the Lyric Contest, head here.
