A Virginia native, Rose moved to Los Angeles during the early 2010s. There, she found herself gravitating toward the sounds, stories, and swagger of country music, a genre that had been so prevalent back home. When an opportunity arose to open for LeAnn Rimes, Rose accepted the gig, performing in front of thousands of new fans and, in the process, laying the brickwork for the formation of her own country band.
You won’t find Honey County on any map. Launched in 2014, the group takes its name from a fictional place, a move that allows Rose and her two bandmates — Devon Jane and Katie Stump — to create their own landscape of story-driven country; modern, melodic pop; and punchy, guitar-fueled rock (an influence that’s strengthened by Jane, the trio’s lead guitarist, whose fretwork has landed her gigs with everyone from Keith Urban to Ceelo Green). The band wasted little time developing its audience in California and beyond, earning a spot on the HBO series True Blood with Honey County’s very first single, “Blood From a Stone,” and appearing as semi-finalists on VH1’s Make a Band Famous competition. Meanwhile, shows with artists like Chase Rice, Easton Corbin, David Nail, Clare Dunn, and Dylan Scott kept Honey County busy, adding history and heft to the band’s sound.
