Whitney Rose's July trip to Montana included a Colter Wall set, hang time with Emmylou Harris and ... drinks with mermaids?! The singer-songwriter really made the most of her time at the 2021 Under the Big Sky Festival.

Rose was one of more than three dozen artists who played the Whitefish, Mont.-based festival on July 16-18. Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit headlined on Saturday (July 17) — the day Rose performed — but in addition to Isbell, Rose, Wall and Harris, the event also included sets from Billy Strings, Jade Bird, Orville Peck, Brothers Osborne and Tyler Childers, among others.
