Rachel Brooke eats tomatoes every day.

She's loved them since she was young and now considers them part of who she is. That’s why the singer from Lovells featured them so prominently on the cover of “The Loneliness in Me” ― because she says this album is the most authentic record she’s released.

Today on Stateside, only eight days remain until Election Day. We take a look at the race for the 3rd congressional district currently held by U.S. Representative Justin Amash (L-MI 3). And what auto workers are listening for from presidential candidates.  Also, a new country album offers a wistful twang for these trying times.
