MCA Nashville singer/songwriter Kassi Ashton made her long-awaited debut on the Grand Ole Opry Wed. night, March 15. The widely acclaimed Missouri-native known for her free spirit and her rich, soulful voice, opened her Opry set with a stunning rendition of the Sammi Smith hit, “Help Me Make It Through the Night.” Kassi explained to the audience the promise she made to herself when she was young that when she gets the chance to stand in the famed Opry circle, that she would sing one of the tunes from her Queens of Country songbook. Kassi next dove into a song she wrote Travis Wood and Todd Clark, her brand-new release “Drive You Out of My Mind,” playing on country radio now.
“I tried to soak up as much of the history, talent, and magic of the circle my boots could hold,” says Kassi. “It went straight to my heart. My roots are still singing with joy.”
Kassi is also currently on the road with Old Dominion for the No Bad Vibes Tour plus, fans can find her this summer playing the 50th Annual CMA Fest in Nashville this summer. Upcoming dates include a three-night run in Key West before heading up to Penn., Maine, and N.Y. For more information, visit www.KassiAshton.com.
