"I really love Ashton Shepherd. I think that she's a girl that we need in country music because she's so raw and real and just hardcore country. She's the real deal."
- Miranda Lambert
"She has one of those lived-in country voices: hard and bright, weary but hopeful, perfect for her wise, witty, tough-minded songs"
Hailed as a new Loretta Lynn by The Wall Street Journal, and compared to Taylor Swift by Entertainment Weekly, Ashton Shepherd stormed the country music world with her sass and southern charm in her songs "Takin' Off This Pain," "Look It Up," and "Sounds So Good." In similar style to Miranda Lambert, the former MCA recording artist lets her genuine Alabama twang and no-nonsense attitude take it's course in her clever lyricism. The Billboard chart-topping artist secured a nomination for Top New Female Vocalist in the 2009 Academy of Country Music Awards, as well as a Female Music Video nomination in the 2011 American Country Awards.
