BIG LOUD RECORDS continues its big, loud, discovery of powerhouse talent, signing ASHLAND CRAFT to their unrivaled roster. Upping the ante, her brand-new song “Trainwreck” is available now at all streaming platforms and digital retailers.

Offering a gutsy, woman’s take on lyrical territory typically only tread by male artists, Craft warns a potential bar-crossed-lover with gritty vocals: “Baby I'm a trainwreck, a trainwreck / I'm coming off the line / It's a sure bet, you'll get your heart broke every time." The tell-it-like-it-is ballad was penned by Randy Montana and Channing Wilson, and Craft first heard it when opening for Wilson in 2018. Resonating with the material and knowing that she had to cut it, she took a chance and sent a work tape of herself singing it to Wilson. Last April, he gave Craft his blessing on her birthday, and she in turn asked him to sing background vocals on her version produced by Jonathan Singleton.

“To be able to debut ‘Trainwreck,’ written by two songwriters that I admire – Randy Montana and Channing Wilson – and a song that I've wanted to release for a few years now, on the same day that I get to announce my record deal, is honestly surreal,” shares Craft. “Signing a record deal is always something that I dreamed about and I honestly can’t believe the day is finally here. This is the biggest milestone I've hit so far in my life, hands down. Everyone that I’m surrounded by – Big Loud Records, Make Wake Artists, and 50 Egg Music – they honestly are my dream team. It just makes me want to work even harder to honor all of the opportunity that I’ve been given.”

Seth England, Partner/CEO of Big Loud, echoes Craft’s excitement, adding, “We couldn’t be more thankful Ashland Craft chose to make Big Loud her label home. She is a career artist with a huge voice, and has built an amazing team already. The future is very, very bright for Ashland."
Ashland Craft - "Trainwreck"
Emerging as one of the most exciting new voices in the genre, Craft is set to introduce her own brand of edgy Country music with a fresh batch of tunes this year, after a Top 10 stint on NBC’s The Voice and opening tour slots for major artists like Luke Combs, Morgan Wallen, and more. Since relocating to Nashville last year, she has won fans with her no B.S. stamp on independent releases like Country girl anthem "Good Ol' Girls," the cleverly-constructed ode to loneliness "Your Place or Mine," and clear-eyed ballad "They Always Do." A true, lifelong music lover, Craft discovered her honky-tonk spirit and cut her teeth singing Country and Rock covers at a hometown bar in South Carolina, and counts Def Leppard, Gretchen Wilson, Chris Stapleton, Bonnie Raitt, and John Mayer, among her eclectic musical influences. She is signed to Make Wake Artists for management and 50 Egg Music for publishing.





Big Loud Records’ head-turning success story continues to unfold since first launching in 2015, as an expansion of innovative music company Big Loud. With multiple GOLD and PLATINUM certifications and six #1 hits, the Big Loud Records artist family includes Morgan Wallen, Jake Owen, Chris Lane, HARDY, Mason Ramsey, MacKenzie Porter, ERNEST, Ashland Craft, Larry Fleet, and Sean Stemaly. Further establishing its cutting-edge reputation, Big Loud Records partnered with ACM award-winning songwriter Nicolle Galyon to create female-focused label Songs & Daughters with flagship artist Madison Kozak. Big Loud’s growing roster has accounted for more than 5 BILLION global streams to date. As of July 2019, the label was the #1 streaming market shareholder among true independent Country labels and #6 overall (country currents YTD, Nielsen Music). Garnering industry recognition, VP of Promotion, Stacy Blythe, was awarded the top honor for SVP/VP at the 2019 CRS/Country Aircheck Awards.
