Album: Caitlin Rose, The Stand-In (Names)

If you're watching Nashville, you'll be familiar with the three female leads/country archetypes: the seasoned pro; the mouthy upstart; the ingénue waitress.

Caitlin Rose, 25-years-old and just two albums in, still manages to embody all three. And though some of the good-girl-gone-bad shtick has been sacrificed on the altar of go-for-it jangly pop, she's still as good as it gets when she finally opens her pipes on "Dallas".
