From the moment Ashland Craft’s voice starts coming through your speakers, you’ll gravitate to the lyrics she’s singing. The South Carolina native is currently signed to Big Loud Records and already has a host of spirited country songs in her catalog: for example, her current single, “Two Wildflowers and a Box of Wine,” and the powerful “Trainwreck.”
