DEBUT SINGLE “TAKIN’ OFF THIS PAIN” TOPPING CHARTS

NASHVILLE, TN – MCA Nashville will release Ashton Shepherd’s debut record Sounds So Good, produced by Buddy Cannon (Kenny Chesney, Reba McEntire), March 4.  Shepherd co-wrote 10 songs for the 11-track album, 7 of which she single-handedly penned, including the debut single “Takin’ Off This Pain”.

Wise beyond her years, the Alabama native began performing at an early age.  She taught herself guitar and won a contest that awarded her an opening spot for Lorrie Morgan, which drew attention from Nashville.

“Right after I got the record deal, I was asked how many original songs I had,” Shepherd recalls.  “I said, ‘About 150.’”

“I started singing as soon as I could talk,” commented Shepherd.  “I entered my first country showdown when I was eight years old.  As soon as I was big enough to write on paper, I was coming up with stuff.  I’ve got notebooks where I was writing down songs when I couldn’t even spell correctly, from the time I was five, six, seven years old.  A pinch before I turned 15, I started playing.  When I picked up the guitar, the songs just started pouring out, just one after the other.”
