surprise duet that I can’t wait for everyone to hear,” says Ashton.
This Is America was
solely written by Ashton and portrays the same genuine country style
that the audience expects when they think of Ashton Shepherd. “I wrote This is America when
I was tired of seeing the negative things in the news, people bickering
back and forth, and everyone seeming to be in turmoil and at the same
time, knowing that people are in this chaos because the money’s runnin’ low, though we been workin’ real hard.
I’ve been there before. As I wrote this song, the more I realized times
are hard and America needs to stick together,” says Ashton.
will also be joining the ranks of other professional country foodies
such as Trisha Yearwood, Little Big Town’s Kimberly Schlapman, etc by
having her own cooking show, “Cookin’ Country” on the Foodie Network
Online EWave TV. EWave TV is America’s first multi-channel online
television network and will air her first episode July 4th at http://foodies.ewave.tv/.
