Nashville, TN—MCA Nashville singer/songwriter Ashton Shepherd will kick off her album launch week with a performance of “Where Country Grows” on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno on Friday, July 8. The performance is in celebration of her sophomore release, Where Country Grows, out July 12.
In addition to this special performance, Shepherd will release the album’s title track to radio on Monday, July 11. “Where Country Grows” was co-written by Shepherd and Bobby Pinson and is the follow-up single to her sassy Top 20 hit “Look It Up.”
Already receiving critical acclaim, Rolling Stone recently gave Where Country Grows four stars and named Shepherd as an “Artist To Watch” saying, “her debut, Sounds So Good, was one of the best country releases of 2008. Where Country Grows is even better …Alabama spitfire matches killer voice to immaculate tunes…She can be as rugged as Miranda Lambert and Jamey Johnson, and sings better than each.” Moreover, Entertainment Weekly gave the album an impressive A- and in addition has chosen Where Country Grows for its coveted “Must List” saying, “Among strong, young hardcore-country women, Miranda Lambert is Ashton’s only real competition,” while Vanity Fair picked it as a Hot Track in their latest issue. Additional critical praise was given by the Washington Post, who selected her as one of their five top new artists to watch in 2011 (all genres).
The new album follows Shepherd’s highly acclaimed debut album Sounds So Good, which earned tremendous reviews and made numerous year-end lists when it was released in 2008. The Washington Post named it their “Album of the Year” (all genres), while The Wall Street Journal asserted, “the most promising debut of 2008 came from this young woman from Alabama…a potential Loretta Lynn for a new generation.” Moreover, Entertainment Weekly included “Sounds So Good” on its all-genre list of 10 Best Singles of 2008 and Shepherd earned the No. 1 spot on the Nashville Scene’s Country Music Critic’s Poll in the New Acts category, which was voted on by top music journalists from all over the country.

Text messages and tweets by three fugitive siblings who shot at a police officer and robbed a bank reveal a dangerous mindset and a firm bond between the siblings, "We've certainly seen their mindset when... They shot at a law enforcement officer outside of Tampa Bay, Fla., and when they fired inside that bank in Valdosta, Ga. But these additional texts and tweets have given us additional insight," FBI Special Agent Stephen Emmett told "Good Morning America" today. " We are concerned and feel that they are going to continue and cause problems to say the least for law enforcement." Ryan Dougherty, 21; his sister Lee Grace E.
