Ashley Monroe Debuts ‘Weed Instead of Roses’ Video

Ashley Monroe has released the video for her song ‘Weed Instead of Roses,’ from the Vince Gill-produced album, ‘Like a Rose.’

The song proposes a racy solution for a couple whose romance has become routine: “Give me weed instead of roses / Bring me whiskey instead of wine / Every puff, every shot, you’re looking better all the time.”

Much like the overall feel of Monroe’s album, the new clip has a retro cool vibe, featuring the singer decked out in heavy green eye shadow and clothes that are reminiscent of a mid-’70s appearance on a variety show. The band, set and even the way the video is shot all reinforce the throwback theme — throw in a few hay bales, and the performance wouldn’t have been out of place on ‘Hee Haw.’

Monroe took time away from Pistol Annies to release ‘Like a Rose,’ which is one of the most critically acclaimed albums of the year. Rolling Stone included the disc in their Best Albums of 2013 Mid-Year Report this June, calling the album “Traditionalist, countrypolitan and honky-tonk all at once … Nine songs, 32 minutes, no false moves.”
