Speaker 1:                        Takin’ A Walk.

Buzz Knight:                     The Grand Ole Opry is just this classic top of the mountain type of thing. And to get asked to do it is just something that I will never forget. I remember during rehearsal, because you get a short rehearsal when you do it your first time, they’re like, “Do you want to practice in the circle?” And I was like, “No, no. I don’t want to stand in the circle until we’re doing the real thing. It feels weird. I don’t want to jump the gun.”

Speaker 1:                        Welcome to the Takin’ A Walk Podcast hosted by Buzz Knight. The podcast that runs the gamut from rising stars to Hall of Famers. On this episode, our guest is Kassi Ashton, a rising star in the country world. Kassi is a singer/songwriter part of the UMG Nashville family. She’s described as someone with a little bit of rock, a hell of a lot of soul, and a throwback R&B groove. She’s making her mark with new music, a tour, and a whole lot of passion and contagious energy. Join Buzz Knight as he hosts Kassi Ashton on this episode of Takin’ A Walk.

Buzz Knight:                     Well, Kassi, it’s so great to have you on the Takin’ A Walk Podcast, albeit virtually.

Kassi Ashton:                   Yes, yes. Thank you for having me.

Buzz Knight:                     If we were walking in person where would we be walking and would we be smoking some butts along the way?

Kassi Ashton:                   I would say in Nashville we could probably go for a walk at Centennial Park. It’s always really, really lovely. It’s kind of cloudy today, but I don’t mind the clouds. And if you want to be smoking when we’re walking, I’m down with it. Whatever, whatever.

Buzz Knight:                     Well, I just know we’d be having fun, but we’re going to have fun right now. Listen, you absolutely killed it when I saw you both times at the Ryman, at the CRS in particular this last time around, that performance of Called Crazy was just so awesome. Everybody was talking about it. I’ve told everybody about it and it was just wonderful and jaw dropping.

Kassi Ashton:                   Thank you very much. I love UMG’s CRS event at the Ryman because when else do you get to see that many country music artists and huge stars? Chris Stapleton, everybody is there that quickly and all at one time. It’s exciting and it’s nerve wracking just because you are singing on the same stage in the same hour and a half with all of your favorites, and you’re in front of a bunch of people who probably watched shows every single weekend and you just got to give them a little something extra.

Buzz Knight:                     Well, you were great last year, but I really felt with this one that you came to a moment in time that I feel it was historic for you because it was just so awesome and you seem like you were in such a good vibe for it.

Kassi Ashton:                   Thank you. I think it really stems from… Even though I’m a baby artist, I’ve been doing this career for a while now and I’ve been on stage my entire life and I just feel like I just know who I am and I know what I’m doing. This song, Called Crazy is one of the most me songs I have ever written in my life. I mean, we got the chorus done when we were writing it myself, Jared Keim and Emily Weisband. I just was giggling and kicking my feet because I was like, “This is it.” This has never been more me while also being so commercial at the same time.

                                           So I’ve got my cheetah pants on in the Ryman. I’m ready to come out and say, “No, I am ready to be taken seriously. This is who I am and I know what I’m doing.” So thank you for saying that.

Buzz Knight:                     Would you give that little introduction that you gave, which was so unbelievable for our audience?

Kassi Ashton:                   Yes. I will. I said this in the Ryman, I said, “I told myself that I was not going to give the speech that I give in bars to all the drunk woo girls, but we’re going to go ahead and do it.” I usually say, “Ladies,” and they woo, “Woo.” And if they don’t woo loud enough, you say, “Ladies,” again. And I say, “Have you ever been on a first date or a fifth date, I don’t know your business, whatever it is, and you make the mistake of asking about exes? And the person you’re on the date with starts talking about that one crazy girl. And on the outside you’ve got your wine glass in your hand. You’re thinking, ‘Wow, that’s crazy. I can’t believe that she acted like that.’ But on the inside you are thinking, ‘I’m worse.'”

                                           And everyone laughs. The woo girls woo. And I say, “And she should call me next time because what she did was amateur and I could give her some tips.” And the woo girls scream and they throw their drinks in there. And then I say, “But ladies,” and then they woo and I say, “Put it on my gravestone. Any man who has ever called me crazy has called me again.” And they scream and then we sing and it’s hilarious. I love it.

Buzz Knight:                     So tell me about that moment, I think it was, if I have it correct, March 15th, 2023 when you played this other special venue in Nashville.

Kassi Ashton:                   March? Oh, the Ryman.

Buzz Knight:                     Or the Grand Ole Opry.

Kassi Ashton:                   Oh, yeah, the Grand Ole Opry. Yes. I made my Grand Ole Opry debut, which any person you ask, they tell the truth when they say, “That is something.” As a child, if you have known since you were a child that you wanted to be a country music singer, that’s top three moments that you think of when you think, “I want to be a country music singer.” There are other goals that happen along the way or things that come along that you realize would be an honor to do farther down the line when you’re more intelligent about the industry or whatever.

                                           But the Grand Ole Opry is just this classic top of the mountain type of thing. And to get asked to do it is just something that I will never forget. I remember during rehearsal, because you get a short rehearsal when you do it your first time, they’re like, “Do you want to practice in the circle?” And I was like, “No, no. I don’t want to stand in the circle until we’re doing the real thing. It feels weird. I don’t want to jump the gun.” And it went beautifully. And it’s kind of like all a blur. You go in hoping that it feels like it lasts all day, but you’re actually, it feels like about 15 minutes, six hours of interviews and whatever and practice. And actually getting to it is a lot of hours and it feels about 15 minutes. So you just try to hold onto it as much as you can.

Buzz Knight:                     And savor the moment, right?

Kassi Ashton:                   And savor the moment. Try not to cry the whole time. I don’t even consider myself really a public crier. I went to sing because you sing two songs at the Grand Ole Opry, and I always promised some members of my family that the first time I sang at the Opry, I would do a cover, one of the old country songs that I grew up singing. So I sang Help Me Make It Through The Night by Sammy Smith, and then I sang Drive You Out of My Mind, my single at the time. And I started the intro of Help Me Make It Through The Night and started playing, and I was getting so choked up just because I guess the memory of singing that song as a little girl in the kitchen or in my bedroom or on the back of a gooseneck horse trailer, whatever it may be, it kind of felt, no pun intended, because I was standing in a circle, full circle.

Buzz Knight:                     Well stated.

Kassi Ashton:                   Thank you.

Buzz Knight:                     You have your own sound. I think you transcend genres. Sometimes I hear Amy Winehouse.

Kassi Ashton:                   Thank you.

Buzz Knight:                     Sometimes obviously I hear Reba, Bonnie Raitt, maybe.

Kassi Ashton:                   Thank you.

Buzz Knight:                     Rickie Lee Jones.

Kassi Ashton:                   That’s really cool.

Buzz Knight:                     Etta James.

Kassi Ashton:                   Thank you.

Buzz Knight:                     Tell me growing up the influences that were around a very musical household?

Kassi Ashton:                   I mean, you hit the nail on the head, all of those are compliments to me, and all of those are key artists in my upbringing. I always tell people that I grew up on classic country, but more so than that, my parents are split. So I lived at my mom’s most of the time and went to visit my dad on the weekends, and there were only females in my mom’s household, me, my mom, and my older sister. And my mom sings too. My older sister sings too. And it was strictly power females in our house. A genreless sort of if a woman had been through struggle and had some grit and was like would wave her acrylic fingernail in your face. That was what we were listening to.

                                           So it was everything from, like you said, Etta, Aretha, Loretta, Reba. I mean Fancy was like the national anthem in our house. If you got the words wrong, you were grounded. That got you in more trouble than most other things in my childhood. And so I really appreciate when people compare me to different absolute legends in different genres, because to me, they all say the same thing. No matter if it’s a guitar playing with them or the piano or if it’s solo, or if it’s country, it’s like, “No, we’re women and we’ve overcome this thing and we’ve got some stories in our voice and we’re just trying to tell them.”

Buzz Knight:                     Do you remember the first time you knew you were going to be in music for your life?

Kassi Ashton:                   I mean, I was basically told when I popped into the world that I could sing because like I said, my mom sings, my older sister sings and I was handed a microphone. We have a video of me. I was maybe four years old on the back of a gooseneck trailer in my hometown for a karaoke competition. And I sang, Mary Had a Little Lamb. And apparently I didn’t know this. There’s more than one verse to that and I couldn’t read. So I just danced around in circles on the stage and wagged my hand like my mom always did and sang the same verse to Mary Had a Little Lamb over and over and over again.

                                           That was the only option for me ever. It wasn’t even like I had to debate or consider anything. My mom would sneak me into karaoke bars and bowling alleys. My favorite song to sing was My Heart Will Go On from the Titanic and I couldn’t read yet so she would stand behind me and whisper the words into my ear. And then she tells me that if people clap too loud, the noise would scare me and we would have to leave. So this has always been it. Luckily someone told me a while back, don’t ever have a plan B because if you have a plan B, you just give up on plan A too easy. If you have one option, then you will be desperate to make that option come true.

Buzz Knight:                     Not even close in terms of not having a plan B.

Kassi Ashton:                   No.

Buzz Knight:                     Wow.

Kassi Ashton:                   Yeah.

Buzz Knight:                     Where did you get your sense of humor?

Kassi Ashton:                   I think a couple things. I’ll tell you the three things and I’m being so realistic. So this might be a little ugh. One-

Buzz Knight:                     Did you say ugh?

Kassi Ashton:                   Yeah. It might be a little ugh because one, mostly my joke if somebody’s like, “How are you so funny? I say childhood trauma, which is hilarious, but it’s also true. You don’t exactly become funny by always being the most welcomed normal kid. You become funny because you have to make jokes in order to get through bullying or uncomfortable things or insecurity or whatever. I think that played a big part of it. My dad is also hysterical. He’s just one of those people that can be best friends with strangers and make them laugh all night long. And I think I was raised around his sense of humor.

                                           And then I think the little cherry on top is I was a theater nerd all my entire childhood into my teens. President of the drama club, state speech. I was in theater my whole life. And I find the art of comedic timing to be so interesting. You can write a script all day long, but if you don’t have the timing, it just is not going to hit.

Buzz Knight:                     If we were jawboning at the bar and you were telling jokes or just jawbone and back, would I be blushing at some of the things you’d be saying?

Kassi Ashton:                   Maybe. I don’t know. I guess the blushing is subjective. My sense of humor probably is not like the cleanest. It’s a little, it’s a little, it gets in the gutter. It tiptoes. It tiptoes.

Buzz Knight:                     I’m blushing. I love it.

Kassi Ashton:                   I love that.

Buzz Knight:                     Take us inside a writing session. Give us the inside process, what you love about it, maybe the things you don’t like about it, and when you know it’s really working.

Kassi Ashton:                   So I usually do three ways. So me and two other people. If I’m not writing by myself, which I do write by myself to try to keep the skill sharpened and to really ask myself, “What do you have to say when you don’t have someone present to give feedback?” But traditionally it’s a three-way. One person is usually someone who can also build tracks so they can make a little something to go with it so that we don’t have to just do a guitar vocal on our voice memos on our phone.

                                           One of us, I consider myself just as much a lyric person as I am a melody person. I don’t consider one of those to be stronger than the other. And so usually I try to get in the room with someone who one is a melody and one is a lyric person so that it’s balanced, or two people who are both. I love writing with other people especially when your friendship is really strong and they know you because as the artist, they’re trying to write for you. So you’ve got to play this little game of I’ve got to run a line from my brain to their brain.

                                           So we can all try to think as one. And I find that to be really vulnerable and really exciting and really beautiful because if it’s done correctly and they’re trying to write a song for me, one songwriter may say something that I myself would’ve said in such an intimate way that you feel so seen as a human. There’s a therapy aspect to co-writing that you might really get to feel seen and understood, especially if you’re writing something with any kind of true sentimental value to your life, or maybe you are writing a song about pieces of their life.

                                           Or in the best case scenario, the song is a common topic that we’ve all felt vulnerable about and we’re all sharing. And it’s really gorgeous. I think what’s also amazing about Nashville is we tell our secrets in these rooms. We pull our heart out of its little cavity in our chest, and we sit it out in front of our friends and we say, “This is what I have to offer.” You hope that they do the same thing and we share ourselves and spread ourselves all over the room and hope that they’re going to be there to catch you and not take any pieces of you out of the room with them.

                                           There isn’t much about co-writing that I don’t love because it’s like we as three people get to make this little piece for the world that at least one person outside of the room probably really needs. That’s why we write songs. I started writing poems in middle school because I didn’t want to feel alone. I would write poems for just myself, so maybe I could feel like I wasn’t insane. And then as you grow into adulthood and you mature, you think, “Oh, other people need that. And they don’t have the skill that I have, so I have to give them. I have to give this to them as a gift.” So to do that with your friends is just so lovely.

Speaker 1:                        We’ll be right back with more of the Takin’ A Walk Podcast. Welcome back to the Takin’ A Walk Podcast.

Buzz Knight:                     Talk about some of your favorite collaborators that really bring the best out of you?

Kassi Ashton:                   So one of them for sure is my producer, Luke Laird. We just get each other and we both think the same thing is cool, which is one of the key parts to writing a good song with someone is you guys have to have the same subjective opinion about what you think sounds cool because if I think something sounds cool and you think it sounds awful, we’re never going to agree ever. And Luke and I are very like, we’re on the same page of this is a gift that we have and this is an art, and we are never ever going to force it or make ourselves miserable in doing it because that’s not what it’s about.

                                           So he’s taught me so many things from just like, “Hey, this is what we do. We believe in ourselves. We’re supposed to be here. If we’re having a hard time and we’re stuck, we’ll stop and we’ll start writing a song that’s completely opposite, maybe with no intent of finishing it and come back to what we were doing. This is breezy. You don’t have to be so hard on yourself. There’s an art to this and some days it’s easy and some days it’s not.” Also, another guy at Creative Nation, my publishing company signed about two years ago, Oscar Charles, he does tracks. He’s also a producer. He’s brilliant. He’s one of those people where if we are making a song in the Key of Sea and his heater is humming an E flat, he’ll go turn his heater off.

                                           I can’t hear that sort of thing. Or he’ll hear a fly buzzing in the high frequency that they make and he’ll be like, “We have to find that fly because it’s not in the key of the song that we’re doing, and I’m going to go crazy.” It’s amazing to watch him work because Luke, they’re both incredibly humble individuals who are just like, “This is an art that we do and we just work at it and we have no ego.” And they’re both brilliant. They’re so brilliant. So Luke, actually, we co-produced all my songs, and then Oscar and I do the vocals. And Oscar produces the vocals.

                                           For all the new music I’m making and songs like Called Crazy and songs like Drive You Out of My Mind, Dark Room Edition, that kind of alt version that I did of my last single, I could not have the sound and the words and the heart that I have in my music without those two.

Buzz Knight:                     Talk about violin, which I absolutely love. That’s such a-

Kassi Ashton:                   You love Violins?

Buzz Knight:                     I love Violins. Talk about that song and what that means to you.

Kassi Ashton:                   Thank you. Okay. So Violins is a song. I wrote that song probably six years ago, five years ago, six years ago. I was writing with two co-writers, Luke Dick and Natalie Hemby. Both incredibly brilliant, strange individuals in the most beautiful… I prefer the strange ones. You’ve probably heard of Natalie Hemby is one of the most gifted songwriters and vocalists that we have in all of Nashville. If she would’ve chosen the route to be an artist a long time ago before she chose Grammy award-winning songwriter, I mean, she could have taken over the world.

                                           And Luke Dick is like, he used to teach philosophy and he smokes out of his pipe and he says the most brilliant, weird, off kilter things. I was telling them a story about how… You probably heard this before. My dad used to tease me if I was whining as a kid, and he’d be like, “Oh, he’d rub his fingers together, his pointer finger to his thumb.” He’d say, “Oh, I’m playing you the world’s smallest violin. Oh, can you hear it? Oh, to accompany your wines.” And I was telling them that. And Natalie literally sang, I’m not joking. Off the jump she goes (singing).

                                           And then it was like she wrote the chorus and I was just sitting there. I had maybe been in my publishing deal a year, so I was still intimidated and she was brilliant. So I’m just sitting there gripping the chair, holding on for dear life while I watched this explosion of brilliance. We just got to be so sassy and say things that you wouldn’t usually peg as buzzwords in country music. And then when I went to the label and I said, “I want to make a music video where there’s a band and we’re in the bleachers. Can we set things on fire?” And they were like, “No.” We just had this great time. I adore that whole season of music at the time.

Buzz Knight:                     We had this other sassy musician on a previous episode of Takin’ A Walk named Amanda Shires. I could picture you guys really making some magic.

Kassi Ashton:                   Thank you. I have never met her in person, but I follow her on all social media. I think she’s brilliant, and I can tell that she’s one of those sassy figures, so I would love that.

Buzz Knight:                     She did say as far as the high women that she thinks it could become where there’s other folks who sort of float in and out of the high women. So you never know for-

Kassi Ashton:                   I would be honored.

Buzz Knight:                     Oh my God. I think it’d be amazing, Kassi.

Kassi Ashton:                   I would be honored. Thank you.

Buzz Knight:                     My God.

Kassi Ashton:                   Thank you.

Buzz Knight:                     Unbelievable. Boy, Dates In Pickup Trucks. Infectious, tell me about that song.

Kassi Ashton:                   Thank you. So I wrote Dates In Pickup Trucks with Luke Laird, who I just talked about, and a guy named David Garcia who does a bunch of Carrie Underwood stuff. He’s a brilliant track guy. We were not trying to write a single, we weren’t aiming for radio, we weren’t really aiming for anything. I had the idea, I went to Luke and I knew he was going to laugh at me. I said, “I want to write a song called Dates In Pickup Trucks, which is the most… I mean, to be honest, that title, if you saw it on a piece of paper is cringe. You’re like, “What in the country AI algorithm is this? Dates In Pickup Trucks, I always tell the joke that it sounds like my tractor is green and my cow goes moo. It just is a very cliche thing, but I was telling him and I was like, “Yeah.”

                                           Because Luke and I both love ’90s country and nineties R&B. And I was like, “Remember the burnt CDs that we used to make with both of those genres? You go driving around and go gravel roading and do things that you weren’t supposed to do in your tiny town.” I go, “Let’s make it sound like that. It belongs on this CD.” And so he started playing the guitar part that you hear on that song, and it was just this fun thing that we did. And the idea came from my grandma calling me one day and telling me… She was giggling and she does not giggle at all, ever. And I was like, “What is wrong with grandma? Why is she giggling?”

                                           And she told me how her and my grandpa who have been married since they were like 15, went on a date in a pickup truck and she made dinner and they drove around old roads in my hometown that they don’t drive on regularly. And then they ate dinner in the back of the truck. And I was like, “This is the most adorable thing I have ever heard in my life that my grandparents who have been married for a million years who live in the same town they grew up in, decided to make a date out of it like they’re teenagers.” And so it just was so touching.

                                           I used to tell a really funny kind of gutter tiptoeing story about that song, and I would always tell people, I’d be like, “If you film this, don’t let my grandma see this. She’s not going to be happy.”

Buzz Knight:                     Kassi, imagine if you took me to a Thanksgiving dinner at your California- Missouri home and you introduced me to some of the characters in your family. Who would some of those characters be?

Kassi Ashton:                   Okay. So my dad’s name is Terry. He is one of my best friends. We look alike, we act the same. We have the same mustache except I bleach mine and he leaves his alone. He is going to bring to Thanksgiving, he’s probably going to bring Wild Turkey and not the animal. It’s going to be a paper bag, brown turkey. He would absolutely talk your ear off if you would allow him to. So you just walk away if he talks too much.

                                           My Aunt Tammy is his sister. She is the boss of the family, and she’ll let you know. She’ll be wearing Crocs, but only the kind with the fur on the inside. And she’ll be sitting in her recliner telling everyone what to do without actually doing any of the things that she’s telling people to do. My grandpa is hilarious and very dry, very dry humor, kind of sarcastic, smart-ass, but only if he can hear you. Only if he can hear the conversation that you’re having.

                                           If he can’t, he’s perfectly nice because he has nothing to say. And you would meet my little brother who is six years younger than me. He has a mullet by choice. He’s like six-four and amazing, very kind. If you were like, “Hey, I need my oil changed,” he would just go outside and start changing it. My little sister who is three years younger than me and has Down syndrome would also be there drinking her wine coolers. And you would see that we have been trying to convince her for the past couple of years to flip people off, but she refuses to do it.

                                           We try to tell her, “Allie, you have Down syndrome. You have the perfect escape card. You can flip people off. Nobody is going to say anything because you have Down syndrome and she won’t do it. But she gives you the eyes, the mean eyes that say the same thing as the middle finger. And we try to explain that to her and she won’t do it. My aunts and uncles and some of my cousins would be there. And there would be a lot of home cooked food. So I hope that you would be wearing some sort of stretchy pants or maybe would be unashamed to unbutton the top of your jeans after eating. And you are not on a diet or have any heart conditions because this would not be the meal for you.

Buzz Knight:                     Oh, that is so visual. Now, what’s your favorite meal?

Kassi Ashton:                   Okay. Favorite, fried deer steak. We fry it like chicken in my family, fried deer steak, mashed potatoes and peas. I put the peas on top of the mashed potatoes. Corn on the cob and homemade bread with homemade jam and sweet tea.

Buzz Knight:                     Wow.

Kassi Ashton:                   Yeah.

Buzz Knight:                     Healthy.

Kassi Ashton:                   Yeah, that’s what I said.

Buzz Knight:                     It looks so healthy.

Kassi Ashton:                   That’s what I said. I hope you don’t have any heart conditions because it would not be the meal.

Buzz Knight:                     Speaking of health, can you confirm that Bobby Bones actually breaks a sweat when he works out?

Kassi Ashton:                   I have never worked out with Bobby, but I mean, I don’t know. Maybe I’ll have to call him and be like, “Hey, Bobby, you want to go to Orangetheory together?” We’ll see. We’ll see if he perspires. I’ll send you a picture and be like, “His skin is dry. What is happening?”

Buzz Knight:                     I know that music is very important to you in your life, and we actually produce this other podcast. It’s hosted by Lynn Hoffman, and it’s called Music Save Me. It’s about the power of music, the healing power of music. And you went through some health challenges in your life, certainly that you conquered. Do you believe music has healing power?

Kassi Ashton:                   Oh yeah, absolutely. I mean, on a spiritual level, and to me, even on a physical level, I believe in frequency healing and what it does for the body to sort of relax under certain sounds. And then on a spiritual level, like I was talking about earlier with the co-writing scenario, I think it does wonders to everything, mental, physical, to feel understood. And that’s what music is for. It’s to be a universal language and a sort of universal heart and soul that you can share with strangers.

                                           What is more healing than that than to here’s something that maybe you thought was only your issue or something that you were going through or something that no one would ever understand, so perfectly illustrated in lyrics or in music itself? And to know that, “Hey, if other people feel this, then there have been other people that have gotten through this, and that means that I have a really good chance of doing that as well.”

Buzz Knight:                     If there was someone who is not on this planet anymore that you admire and that you could just snap your fingers and collaborate with, who would it be?

Kassi Ashton:                   Before you got to the collaborate part, my grandma passed away last year, and I would snap my fingers for my grandma. She would not sing. She would not sing, she would not write, but I would give her songwriting credit if she wanted it. If she wanted to be in the room, I would bring my grandma back because she was the strongest, grittiest. I always say that she could eat nails for breakfast if she wanted to, but she chose not to. She chose to remain soft or she chose to remain caring when she could have snapped someone over her knee as easily as she snapped a chicken when I was little. I would definitely choose my grandma.

Buzz Knight:                     Kassi, in closing, what do you want to learn that you haven’t learned at this point in your career?

Kassi Ashton:                   On a funny level, I want to learn what it feels like to sell out an arena tour. I want to learn what it feels like to sell out the Ryman by myself. I want to learn what it feels like to win Grammys sitting in my arms. But I think I also want to learn what it feels like to be satisfied and whole in what I have done with my career. Do I know if I will ever be satisfied or I will just continue running up an endless mountain my entire life? I’m game for either. I’m okay. I’m all right with chasing it down till I go on to another space in time.

                                           But if I could learn what it feels like to look at the hill I have just run up and gone, oh, we did that on our own, every step, sweating, bleeding, if need be, and no one can take this incline away from me. And I feel whole when looking back at it.

Buzz Knight:                     Kassi Ashton, you are amazing. This is a moment for you. Keep getting it and-

Kassi Ashton:                   Thank you.
