MCA Nashville artist Kassi Ashton made her Grand Ole Opry debut on March 15, paying homage to those who have stood in the historic circle before her with a special opening song.
The Missouri native started her Opry set with a rendition of the Sammi Smith classic, “Help Me Make It Through the Night,” explaining to the audience the promise she made to herself when she was young that when she got the chance to stand in that spot, she would sing one of the tunes from her Queens of Country songbook. Ashton also performed her brand new single “Drive You Out of My Mind,” which is at radio now.
“I tried to soak up as much of the history, talent and magic of the circle my boots could hold,” says Ashton. “It went straight to my heart. My roots are still singing with joy.”
The soulful singer is currently on the road with Old Dominion for the band’s “No Bad Vibes Tour” and will also play the 50th Annual CMA Fest in Nashville in June.
