You know a musician is good when she's asked to open for both Tim McGraw-Faith Hill and Martina McBride’s tours, respectively. That's why, when we heard this feat was true for triple threat Maggie Rose—writer, performer, and producer—we knew we had to pay attention. The Maryland-born, Nashville-based artist is currently out on the road with the "Valentine" icon for the CMT Next Women of Country tour until March 11. Taking a few moments behind-the-scenes to capture some exclusive photos for us, Rose's tour diary below gives a glimpse into what it's like to tour as a modern country musician.
