Ashland Craft is ranked among CMT’s Next Women of Country Class of 2021 and I guess that’s impressive. Every time I turn on CMT, “Mama’s Family” is on so I can’t really expound on what their accolades truly mean.
— Hailed a “‘can’t miss’ country star on the rise” by CMT, Big Loud Records’ Ashland Craft is rattling Country music with her headline-making debut album, TRAVELIN’ KIND. As reviews are stacking up immediately after launch, critics are all-in for a hell of a ride as “Craft cuts to the chase (and to the heart) as she blazes through 11 tracks of barroom ready, soulful, heart-on-her-sleeve songs,” praises Billboard.
Notching high-profile looks with ET Canada,PEOPLE, CMT, Holler, The Boot, and more, Entertainment Tonight featured album tracks “Make It Past Georgia” and “That’s The Kinda Place” as well on its New Music Releases list. Wide Open Country named her its Act to Watch for September, while Country Aircheck spotlighted Craft in an Off The Record conversation, and Billboard called out “Travelin’ Kind” in First Country. Last Tuesday (9/7), she also launched American Songwriter’s brand-new original broadcast series, Off The Record Live, as their first-ever guest on Twitch.
