Caitlin Rose stood at the alter last night in Kilkenny and converted me; I love country. Like Homer discovering Lurleen, I was completely mesmerized by this wee Tennessee marvel. Her voice, personality, strumming and lyrics captivated me throughout her 70 minute set and has started me on a path into the unknown abyss of country music. Her album received album of the week in The Sunday Times a fortnight ago, coupled with a very very rare and much coveted, but thoroughly deserved, 5 stars - I've had it on repeat since 10am this morning. Buy it and you too will see the light - unfortunately 'Will You Bunk With Me' didn't make the cut!
Catch her in the next two days in Ireland:
Crawdaddy, Dublin - Tonight (23rd Aug)
Cypress Avenue, Cork - Tomorrow (24th Aug)
