Creative Nation has signed songwriter Kassi Ashton to its roster. Ashton is a senior at Belmont University in Nashville, and is slated to graduate in December.

Creative Nation is an independent music publishing and management company owned by songwriter Luke Laird and CEO Beth Laird, and includes writers Barry Dean, Lori McKenna, Luke Laird, Maggie Chapman, Natalie Hemby, Native Run, Steve Moakler and Tyler Johnson.

“After I met with Creative Nation, it immediately felt like home,” Ashton says. “I couldn’t ask for bigger badasses for my first publishing deal!”

Beth Laird adds, “The first time Luke and I heard Kassi’s voice, we were blown away. Her authentic artistry and unique ability to connect emotionally makes her a force to be reckoned with.”
