NASHVILLE, Tenn., Feb. 20 /PRNewswire/ - MCA Nashville will release Ashton Shepherd's debut record "Sounds So Good," produced by Buddy Cannon (Kenny Chesney, Reba McEntire), March 4. Shepherd co-wrote 10 songs for the 11-track album, 7 of which she single-handedly penned, including the debut single "Takin' Off This Pain." Wise beyond her years, the Alabama native began performing at an early age. She taught herself guitar and won a contest that awarded her an opening spot for Lorrie Morgan, which drew attention from Nashville. "Right after I got the record deal, I was asked how many original songs I had," Shepherd recalls. "I said, 'About 150.'" "I started singing as soon as I could talk," commented Shepherd. "I entered my first country showdown when I was eight years old. As soon as I was big enough to write on paper, I was coming up with stuff. I've got notebooks where I was writing down songs when I couldn't even spell correctly, from the time I was five, six, seven years old. A pinch before I turned 15, I started playing. When I picked up the guitar, the songs just started pouring out, just one after the other."
