Ashton Shepherd Dropped From MCA Nashville

Ashton Shepherd.

Talented singer-songwriter Ashton Shepherd has been quietly dropped from her label MCA Nashville and Universal Music Group. She’s released two albums on MCA Nashville – her 2008 record “Sounds So Good,” and 2011’s “Where Country Grows.” She’s the second artist this month to part ways with the label, who also called it quits with LeAnn Womack.

Ashton is reportedly looking for songs for a brand new album, but has not yet announced a new label home. We here at Keepin’ it Country wish her luck and can’t wait to hear what she has next in store!

2012 has seen quite a bit of change in country music – Ronnie Dunn, Kellie Pickler, LeAnn Womack, and Josh Thompson are just some of country music’s stars who have left their label homes.

Album Review: Ashton Shepherd – “Where Country Grows”

After listening to Ashton Shepherd’s sophomore effort, “Where Country Grows”, a few times on repeat yesterday, I’m not quite understanding why I never bought her debut album that came out a few years ago. I was and am a huge fan of her single “Sounds So Good”, but never picked up the album itself. After typing up this review, I’m making a B-line over to iTunes and picking it up. Being an Alabama native myself, we’re always very proud of the folks who make it big from the Heart of Dixie. And Ashton is no exception.
