Rose signs with Six Shooter
Thursday, January 14, 2016
– Traditional country singer Whitney Rose signed a deal with Six Shooter Records, she announced today.
Rose released "Heartbreaker of the Year" last year to much praise. Raul Malo of The Mavericks produced the disc and sang duets with Rose as well. She was discovered five years ago by Blue Rodeo's Bob Egan at a party where she sang a few songs a capella.
Rose plays Austin's Continental Club every Thursday at 6:30 p.m. with her ongoing artist residency. A debut gig in Los Angeles is confirmed for Thursday, February 18 at Hotel Café.
The label, which is based in Toronto and Nashville, is also home to Sam Outlaw, whose CD also was given much praise.
