Miranda Lambert‘s Pistol Annies bandmate Ashley Monroe is branching out on her own with her solo effort ‘Like a Rose,’ out on March 5. But she is doing so with a little help. Monroe made use Lambert’s husband Blake Shelton for a duet on the throwback song ‘You Ain’t Dolly (And You Ain’t Porter.)’
The song is a “he said, she said,” back and forth track — a classic country duet that sounds like it was birthed in a barn four decades ago. But it is modernized with humor. It should generate more than a few chuckles, since the sassy Monroe and the always quippy Shelton trade barbs and play with self-deprecation while lyrically throwing sand at one another in the musical sandbox.
