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, noting one of the poignant lyrics ["Guess I'm stressed in life, says the bags under my eyes"].
