Live on the Levee

Headliner: Ashton Shepherd A gifted country songwriter and singer, Ashton Shepherd was born August 16, 1986, in Coffeeville, Alabama. She reportedly began singing as soon as she could talk and began writing song lyrics in notebooks when she was only five or six years old. Shepherd entered her first country showdown when she was eight, singing Patsy Cline songs, and was soon performing regularly at local fairs, benefits, and community events. She picked up the guitar when she was 15 and that same year her parents helped finance a self-released CD, which Shepherd sold at her shows. In 2006 she won a talent contest in Gilbertown, Alabama, for which the prize was an opening slot at a Lorrie Morgan concert. Spotted by a Nashville producer at the Morgan show, Shepherd was invited to Nashville to record, and soon signed with MCA Nashville, beginning work on an album, Sounds So Good, with veteran producer Buddy Cannon later that same year. A debut single from the project, the impressive "Takin' Off This Pain," hit the airwaves in September of 2007, and the Sounds So Good album was released in 2008. Sounds So Good peaked at a reputable 16 on the country charts and for her next album, 2011's Where Country Grows, she streamlined her Americana sound slightly and the record peaked at 11 on the country charts. ~ Steve Leggett, Rovi Opener: Seth Bunting At a young age, Seth Bunting found a passion for singing. He was raised in Boone County, West Virginia where he was surrounded by gospel, country, and pop. Throughout the years Seth sang as often as possible, finding a stage and an audience for anyone who would listen. He was first involved in musicals with his local theater groups, then grew to actively singing in churches, performing in dance classes and competitions. It was at one of these competitions that Seth was discovered by a talent scout for BCE (Bobby Cyrus Entertainment). It was then Seth was able to continue his passion further by writing, recording, and performing his upcoming album. His latest single, “That's What I'm Talking' 'Bout” marks his debut to the country music world. The song is an up-tempo melodic country song that displays Seth’s vocal talent. The song was born when he was connected with Corey Barker and Anita Cox to co-write. After months on months of atrist development and over 20 songs written together, they realized through all the new material that an album would be born. The team headed to the Kent Wells Studio in Franklin, Tennessee and began recording. “That's What I'm Talkin' 'Bout” stood out among all of the other songs and caught on with his fans. The single debuted on August 19, 2016. Seth has since relocated from West Virginia to Nashville, Tennessee where he is busy co-writing, traveling, and collaborating with local musicians while we wait the release of his newest tracks.
