Country music newest songstress, Ashland Craft has been making waves as the opening act on tours with the likes of Luke Combs and Morgan Wallen. Between her gritty vocals and her honesty, Craft fits right in with the boys. Her debut single “Trainwreck” premiered today.
With her first release, Craft proves that she is not afraid to approach subjects normally sung by male country artists. The vocalist sings about being a heartbreaker in the sentimental, yet edgy slow jam. She admits to not having it all together calling herself a “trainwreck,” and revealing, “It’s a sure bet, you’ll get your heart broke every time.” Her first release will tug at your heartstrings, but it is her vulnerable delivery that will make you root for her success. Along with her debut release, Craft announced that she signed a record deal with Big Loud, the record label home of Chris Lane, HARDY, and Morgan Wallen, amongst other powerhouse rising talent.
“Signing a record deal is always something that I dreamed about and I honestly can’t believe the day is finally here. This is the biggest milestone I’ve hit so far in my life, hands down. Everyone that I’m surrounded by – Big Loud Records, Make Wake Artists, and 50 Egg Music – they honestly are my dream team. It just makes me want to work even harder to honor all of the opportunity that I’ve been given.”
Since moving to Nashville, the singer has both branded herself and toured with some of the most popular names in country music right now like Blake Shelton, and one of our favorites, HARDY. We can’t wait to see how her debut and her country-rock sound resonates with fans, but we think female country fans especially will relate to her authenticity. As always, we will keep you posted on this country music newcomer’s journey.
