Description:
Roselea Maddox (August 15, 1925 - April 15, 1998), better known as Rose Maddox, was an American country singer-songwriter and fiddle player.

Born in Boaz, Alabama, Maddox was the singer in the Maddox Brothers and Rose.

In 1996 she was nominated for a Grammy award for her Arhoolie recording $35 and a Dream. Her life story and that of the band were told in the biography, Ramblin' Rose: The Life and Career of Rose Maddox by Jonny Whiteside. ISBN 0-8265-1269-0.

Laura Cantrell's song "California Rose" was written in memory of Maddox. Emmylou Harris believes Maddox has never received the recognition she deserves, in part because of what Harris calls a reluctance in American society to celebrate the value of white country and roots music.
