Ashley Monroe Cuts Live Recordings At Third Man Records

(Radio.com) A few days ago country star Ashley Monroe performed a very special show at Jack White's Third Man Records--the set was recorded live, and many of the songs will be on her forthcoming album, The Blade, due July 24.

"It's very crucial we get this right, obviously," Monroe said to the crowd, according to Rolling Stone. Once she rehearsed a song to get her levels right, Monroe launched into her set. It was recorded live, mixed in real-time and cut to acetate.

Once she'd played five songs Monroe took a break so that recording technicians could replace the acetate for the second side of the LP. Monroe took the opportunity to tell a joke: "What do you call a dead blonde in a closet? 1982 hide-and-seek champion." Then she dove into the next song, "On to Something Good." Read more here.
