Chelle Rose Unveils Blue Ridge Blood For Summer Release

Artist: Chelle Rose
Album: Blue Ridge Blood
Release date: Summer 2016

After taking more than a decade between her debut Nanahally River album (2000) and her critically acclaimed and Ray Wylie Hubbard-produced Ghost of Browder Holler album (2012), Chelle Rose wanted to waste no time getting back into the studio to keep the momentum going in her music career. Spin Magazine had named Ghostone of the top country album releases as had No Depression, Engine 145, Country California, Twang Nation and several other publications. Google called her one of the very best unsigned artists. Heavy on regional storytelling, the gritty gospel-laden album was triumphed almost-universally for its personal tales of the people that she encountered growing up in the Appalachian hills she calls home. As fate will have it, however, life had other plans. The health that Rose had taken for granted went sideways. A diagnosis of hypothyroidism pulled her from both stage and studio and derailed all of her musical objectives.
That musical muse might have been knocked down, but not out. Rose is back on the road to recovery and is happy to announce that she’ll be headed back down to Austin this spring to record her follow-up album that she hopes to release in summer 2016.
