This new single, which will be off her upcoming album set to be released late July, is something she is very proud of. “There’s also a special 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.
