Chelle Rose w/Elizabeth Cook 

When: Thu., June 7, 8 p.m. 2012
Price: $15
An East Tennessee native who moved to Nashville in 1996 and promptly made a full-length that went nowhere, Chelle Rose sings in an avenging-hick voice that features some of the broadest vowels known to woman. On her new full-length release, Ghost of Browder Holler, Rose has teamed up with Texas blues-rocker Ray Wylie Hubbard to make one of the year’s finest Americana records. I’m always suspicious when folks compare an artist such as Rose to a combination of Tony Joe White and Maybelle Carter (as I’ve read somewhere), but Rose specializes in hard-driving tracks that rock whatever is left of country music. “Alimony” mentions Dottie West and Range Rovers, while  “Rufus Morgan (Preacher Man)” sits in the tradition of such funk-country records as Larry Jon Wilson’s New Beginnings. Also appearing is country singer-songwriter Elizabeth Cook, whose work updates the tradition as effectively as Rose’s.
