Ashton Celebrates Album Release With Near Capacity Crowd in Knoxville
MCA Nashville’s rising singer/songwriter Ashton Shepherd is on the road this week hitting six cities in 5 days to celebrate the release of her new album Where Country Grows. She played in front of a near capacity crowd of almost 1,500 screaming fans at Cotton Eyed Joe in Knoxville Thursday night, Thursday, July 14. The show was sponsored by Knoxville’s WIVK.
“Ashton Shepherd’s show was close to capacity at Cotton Eyed Joe and was one of the best female shows we’ve had in a long time. She’s welcome back any time,” said Gingi Bakri, Owner, Cotton Eyed Joe.
“The girl from Alabama definitely has a lot of Tennessee fans,” claimed Mike Hammond, OM/WIVK. “Ashton rocked the Cotton Eyed Joe with almost 1,500 fans last night. It’s no wonder Rolling Stone magazine has her on their ‘Artists To Watch’ list. She’s been on our list for quite awhile.”
