Country singer Maggie Rose hails from Potomac, MD made an impressive list at the end of last year.
Rolling Stone Magazine ranked her most recent album, Change the Whole Thing , as one of the top 40 Best Country and Americana albums of 2018 . They said:
Maggie Rose has always had the pipes, but she’d never quite had the freedom. In the hands of various labels, her previous projects, like 2013’s Cut to Impress , felt like there was so much left in the stable of the D.C.-born Rose than was actually allowed to run. For Change the Whole Thing , Rose took to the studio with her touring band and Nashville collective Them Vibes to record the album live, tracking a couple of takes and picking the best one, flaws and all. But you’d be hard-pressed to find anything that doesn’t sound perfectly intentional — Change the Whole Thing sees Rose flirting with R&B and soul, pushing those pipes to Kelly Clarkson proportions (with whom she’ll tour in the new year) and embracing a rootsy, organic vibe. M.M.
Other artists featured on this list included Dierks Bentley, Brothers Osborne, Kenny Chesney and Kacey Musgraves.
Maggie Rose is returning to the area with a performance at the Baltimore Sound Stage on March 21 with Them Vibes presented by 93.1 WPOC and tickets are available here .
