Free MP3 Of The Day: Ashton Shepherd “Where Country Grows”
Our friends at MP3.com recently relaunched their website, and to help them celebrate, we’re giving away some of today’s hottest country music for free, everyday! Today, we’re proud to be featuring [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Ashton Shepherd[/lastfm] and the title track off her upcoming album, “Where Country Grows.”
Sometimes it’s hard to say exactly what “country” is, but one thing’s for sure, you know it when you hear it, and [lastfm]Ashton Shepherd[/lastfm] is country to the bone. If you need more proof, just take one listen to “Where Country Grows.”
“Where Country Grows” is the lead single off Ashton’s upcoming album by the same name. The album comes out next week, on July 12th, and has already gotten rave reviews from pretty much every corner of the internet.
So, what does Ashton know about “Where Country Grows?” Well, that’s a good question with an even better answer. Ashton spends some time writing and working up in Nashville, but she still lives in her little hometown in Northern Alabama. Not only is she raising her son in Alabama, but when she’s not out on the road touring, Ashton works the land there too, growing vegetables and selling them out of the back of her truck.
24 years-old may sound young for such an accomplished and gifted songwriter, but Ashton is wise beyond her years. After all, she’s not just making stories up, she’s telling you about things she knows.
“Have you ever seen a young boy open up a door for an old lady walkin’ in slow?/ or a shoe polish heart on a second hand car saying “Shelly loves Billy” on the window?/ Have you ever heard a mama cry saying goodbye but she knows her soldiers gotta go?/ Oh, that’s where country grows.”
Where else does country grow? Pretty much anywhere Ashton Shepherd goes. You can grab a free mp3 of “Where Country Grows” below before the album comes out July 12th.
