In the face of pop-country, Ashton Shepherd remains stalwart in her traditional-leanings, blazing her own path on This Is America. With 10 perfectly thoughtful tracks, the album is one of the finest solo female releases in recent years, and the singer-songwriter couldn't be happier. One of the standout tunes is her current single "Seventeen Again," a mature perspective on what it means to be grown. "I’m 27. I have two children, and I’ve been married since I was 18 years old. I find myself thinking, ‘who made these rules I live by?’" Shepherd shares in an exclusive interview with NashvilleGab,... Read more

Country music absolutely thrived this year, and that doesn't include what the mainstream regurgitated out to the masses. No, there will be no Bro-Country records in this "Best Of" piece.

Ashton Shepherd announced on Facebook that she's getting a new cooking show on eWave TV. Other happy news!!!!... Read more

Okay, so this is sort of part 2 of this post about the JaneDear Girls breaking up -- something that turns out might have been a surprise to more people than just me. Funny, I don't think I've ever read one short story and got more out of it than this single piece on MSN. So it appears that the MSN piece sort of broke the news that the JaneDear Girls had broken up a few months ago, but then it also said that at the same time Lee Ann Womack parted ways with her record label (something I was...
