Caitlin Rose (born June 23, 1987) is a country singer from Nashville, Tennessee.[1][2]

Career[edit]

Rose was previously the lead singer of Nashville indie band Save Macaulay,[3] on local label Theory 8 until 2007.[4] As a solo artist, she signed to BMI in 2008.[5] The title track of her seven-track 2008 EP, Dead Flowers, is a cover of a Rolling Stones song.

Her first album, Own Side Now, was released by Names Records in August 2010.[2] Her vocal performance and lyrics have led to comparisons to Loretta Lynn, Patsy Cline,[1] and Iris DeMent.[6] Claire Suddath of Time magazine named Own Side Now one of the Top 10 Albums of 2011, ranking it at No. 7.[7]

Her studio album, The Stand-In, was released on February 25, 2013.
