The Blade

Album: The Blade (2015)

Songfacts®:

  • The title track of Ashley Monroe's third studio album, this was penned by Marc Beeson, Jamie Floyd and Allen Shamblinis. It was the only song on the record that Monroe didn't write, but she told People it's the one that resonated with her the most. "'The Blade' is such a special song to me," she said. "I have been on the receiving end of that pain. It actually makes me physically hurt when I sing it... but in a good way."

    "I'm so thankful to the writers of that song," Monroe added. "They talked about my heartbreak in a way that I've never heard. That's hard to do."
