Pistol Annies' Ashley Monroe And Train's Pat Monahan Duet
"'Weed Instead of Roses' I wrote when I was 19 or 20 with two great co-writers and I had that idea. I just went in writing all these raunchy lyrics and I was laughing the whole time," she said. "When it came time to record this album Vince [Gill] heard 'Weed Instead of Roses' and he goes, 'I'm not doing the album unless you record that.' And I was like, 'Oh my gosh, Vince! What will my Papi think?' We did it and I think it's just how it should be."
Monroe went on to explain that she wanted to showcase her funny side on her album and "Weed Instead of Roses" was the perfect example of this. "I think that it's cool to show that you have a sense of humor. I tend to write when I'm sad and I definitely wanted to show that I have a sense of humor and I can also write songs that are funny and fast," she said. "Things that aren't so dark and depressing. It fit the record well."
