If you crave some good old fashioned storytelling, then Whitney Rose has got you covered. Her latest album features the throwback country soul the Canadian singer-songwriter is known for, with songs about heartache, divorce and one very fateful funeral. Rose's latest album is called Rule 62, and the name was inspired by an Alcoholics Anonymous commandment. 

Today, Rose will perform songs from her new album and discuss the inspiration behind it all.
