Lonely side

Caitlin Rose with her song "Own Side", off her new album "Own Side Now". Which you'll have to go to the UK to buy.

Caitlin is 23 years old, sings just fine without autotune (seen her live in venues so shabby that they were lucky to have a PA system, nevermind autotune), drinks like a fish and smokes like a chimney, and writes her own songs. Her mom writes Taylor Swift's songs and nobody knows her mom's name. Taylor Swift makes gazillions of dollars per year and Caitlin mostly performs and sells in Europe when she isn't playing honkey-tonks in front of a dozen drunks who are ignoring her. Crazy industry, eh?
