With a little bit of rock, a hell of a lot of soul, and a throwback R&B groove, Kassi Ashton has crash landed on country radio. “Dates In Pickup Trucks,” her irresistible debut radio single dropped in February, on the eve of her own 28th birthday. “It feels powerful,” she says of the moment’s alignment. Speaking about the song’s playfulness, she adds, “I want it to show that there are many sides to me.”

The release marks the critical next step for the buzzy young singer. Named to Ones to Watch lists by publications like Huffington Post and The Tennessean as well as juggernaut radio personality Bobby Bones, Ashton spent 2019 as one of the openers on Maren Morris’s GIRL World Tour. In 2018, she was featured on Keith Urban’s CMA Album of the Year-nominated LP, Graffiti U.

The simmering new song, it turns out, has a surprising origin story: an uncharacteristically giddy phone call between Ashton and her grandmother. One of nine children and known for her take-no-prisoners attitude, the singer was shocked when, one day, her elder fell into a fit of giggles on the other end of the line. “She’s like, ‘Me and your grandpa went on a date last night,’” Ashton recalls. “‘I made dinner, we packed it up in the truck, and we drove around all the roads we hadn’t seen in a long time.’”

Ashton got to thinking about the nights she stepped out under the stars in her own pickup, back in her one-stoplight hometown of California, Missouri. (“You can gravel road for hours, where I come from” she quips.) Ashton brought the idea into a co-writing session with Luke Laird, who, while having served as the pen behind massive hits by Thomas Rhett, Eric Church, and Carrie Underwood, is also, as Ashton explains affectionately, the “other half of my creative brain,” and David Garcia. Initially, her collaborators both balked at what they considered a kitschy title. “They’re like, ‘This is not the girl I know!’” Ashton says, laughing.


Hailed by Rolling Stone as “country music’s most convincing young star since Stapleton,” Dillon Carmichael isn’t just an artist; he’s a force of nature. Born and raised in Burgin, Kentucky, the 6’4” troubadour first rose to fame in 2018 on the strength of his critically acclaimed Riser House debut, the Dave Cobb-produced Hell On An Angel, which prompted NPR to praise his “deep holler” and the New York Times to declare that his voice moves “with the heft and certainty of a tractor-trailer.” Dates with everyone from Lynyrd Skynyrd and Trace Adkins to Dwight Yoakam and Justin Moore followed, as did festival appearances from Faster Horses to Tortuga and Artist To Watch nods from the likes of Billboard, Rolling Stone, Pandora, and more. Carmichael followed it up in 2021 with Son Of A, another neo-traditional gem that’s racked up more than 13 million streams across platforms (Carmichael’s catalog boasts more than 140 million streams collectively) and yielded similarly glowing reviews for its feel-good mix of wry humor and raw heart. After debuting as the #1 most-added single at country radio, the album’s title track is already well on its way to a million plays on YouTube as it continues to climb the singles charts. Carmichael remains busy as ever on the road in 2022, headlining his ‘Son Of A’ Tour and opening for the likes of Brooks & Dunn, Cody Johnson, Brothers Osborne, and more.


Neotraditional country artist Wynn Williams has all the credentials any country artist would be proud to possess. The former rodeo cowboy combines the honky-tonk attitude of Brooks & Dunn and the crooning style of Strait, with the excitement of Garth. Upon graduation from Texas A&M University in 2016, the young man from Weatherford, TX rode straight into a career as a full-time artist in small bars and restaurants across Texas, at the time promoting his six song “Words Fly” EP while developing himself creatively and artistically, at the same time soaking up everything he needed to know to be successful in a quickly changing, tough music business. His sophomore project, a self-titled fourteen track album released in 2020, busted the doors open for Wynn as he toured the region, crossing state-lines and time zones playing his breakout song “Tornado” for fans begging for the traditional sound.

All while touring from show-to-show, Wynn spent the weeks in-between writing new songs and preparing for the next studio session. Garnering traction over the next two years with the release of several singles, he prepared for the release of the Your Love EP including single ‘All Over Me” earning him a tip of the hat from Billboard in 2023, as well as a music video debut on CMT for lead single from the project, “Like the Wind.” Reminiscent of late 90s, early 00s country, Wynn’s style leans into the fans that have been yearning for the sound of steel and fiddle to play the music again. While amassing over 12M global streams, Wynn has gone on to headline across the U.S. and Europe where he continues to grow and gear up for more exciting projects to come in 2024. Country music is back, and Wynn Williams is an artist riding hard and fast towards the leading edge to earn his place in arenas around the world.
