GAC-TV To Cover Ashton Shepherd's Roots In New Special
September 14, 2011 at 12:55 PM (PT)
GREAT AMERICAN COUNTRY (GAC-TV) is presenting a special on MCA artist ASHTON SHEPHERD, called “ASHTON SHEPHERD-WHERE COUNTRY GROWS,” premiering on MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 19th at 9p (ET). The special takes a closer look at ASHTON’s new music and debuts the music video for “Where Country Grows,” the title track of her second album and her current single.
ASHTON’s home town of LEROY, ALABAMA, has a population of less than 1000 people but it’s where SHEPHERD feels most at home. “My life in LEROY is of course very different from the NASHVILLE scene,” said ASHTON “It’s very Country and very laid back.”
“It’s still surreal when you hear her on the radio or see her on the Internet,” says SHEPHERD’s sister, TARA. “You can type her name in GOOGLE and there she is but to me she’s just sis.” Viewers will be treated to family photos and videos that date back to SHEPHERD’s first talent contest at age eight and a half when she performed two PATSY CLINE songs and received her first standing ovation.
