  • Singer Rosie Soul and her band were voted best local rock band in Style Weekly's annual Best Of poll for three years straight.

Rosie Soul, the lead singer of the Rock and Roll Cowboys, has announced via YouTube that she's undergoing breast cancer treatment and will retire from live performance after her July 11 show at the Marks and Harrison pavilion at Richmond Harley Davidson.

She explains that the two things were just strange coincidences and that she already wanted to stop performing to spend more time with her loved ones. You can watch the video below.

The band is known for its devoted fans, who voted Rosie Soul and the Rock and Roll Cowboys as "Best Local Rock Band" for three years in Style's annual Best of Richmond poll -- until the musicians asked that fans not vote for them this year.
