With super-sized vocals and genre-spanning songwriting chops that blur the lines between country, pop and rock, Maggie Rose has earned a loyal audience, both in her adopted hometown of Nashville and beyond. It’s an audience that’s grown with her for nearly a decade, spending days as a songwriter and nights sharing the stage with artists like Lee Brice and Sheryl Crow. Throughout it all, Rose has established herself as a rare triple threat: a multi-faceted artist who can write, perform, and produce a hit song.
Raised in Maryland, Rose cut her teeth as the leader of a Bruce Springsteen cover band before beginning to write her own songs, drawing on her unique background — including a move to Nashville as a 19 year old — for inspiration. Since then, she’s filled her resume with accolades, awards, and chart hits, including more than 30 appearances at the Grand Ole Opry, an Emmy Award, multiple performances on the nationally-syndicated Bobby Bones Show, and praise from outlets like The New York Times and Vogue.
The buzz has reached a fever pitch with her newer songs, many of which were debuted on Rose’s website during the summer of 2015, that combine the exhilaration of hip-hop with the impact of ’80s rock and the rootsy, story-based stomp of country music. It’s a sound that’s as varied and energetic as Rose herself, pointing to a star who continues to carve out a space for herself in the country world, even as she challenges its boundaries.
