Ashland Craft has released her long-awaited debut album “Travelin Kind”, you can check it out here. Ashland grew up singing in Piedmont, South Carolina. While Craft does not come from a musical family, “music is all I knew growing up, I sang in church, around town, and did any and every competition”. Ashland was eventually led to season 13 of The Voice where she made it to the top 10 with coach Miley Cyrus. “I have learnt so much in each faze and stage as a musician, from playing local bars to The Voice, and now touring stadiums, I have learnt how to be confident on stage and believe in myself”.
Craft has been waiting her whole life to create and release a full album. She has writing credits on all but one song and collaborated with some of the best songwriters in Nashville like Erik Dylan (Luke Combs and Brent Cobb), Jessi Alexander (Miranda Lambert and Miley Cyrus), and Jonathan Singleton (Tim McGraw and Maddie & Tae) among many others! Her favorite song on the record is “Leaving You Again” because “it’s empowering, it’s traditional country, and it embodies everything I love”. Craft reflects on the overall album by saying “I wanted the album to be relatable on all fronts for everyone, it really takes people on a journey”.
Craft has toured with Luke Combs, is among CMT’s Next Women of Country Class of 2021, and is currently on tour with Zac Brown Band on their “Comeback Tour” with Adam Doleac, Devin Dawson, Gabby Barrett and Teddy Swims. The Piedmont born singer just had what she believes is the highlight of her career so far. While on the “Comeback Tour”, she got to play Fenway Park in Boston, Massachusetts. “The Fenway show was absolutely the highlight of my career so far. Moments like seeing Fenway (Park) and signing the Green Monster in the park has been the ultimate feeling for me”. Craft wants aspiring artists to know that you should “be yourself. This is what the (music) business is all about. Live your own truth because that makes the best music”.
