Lewis Bailey predicts another future country star

A year ago this month, brand new granddaddy Lewis Bailey warned us of the trajectory of up-and-coming country singer Elizabeth Cook. And hot damn, wouldn't you know it that nine months later he was he was sitting a Gold Circle seat watching her perform at the Grand Ole Opry.

Lewis knows his C&W. He doesn't go for the Taylor Swifts (though we think she's a cutie and is getting the kids into country, Disneyfied as it is). This afternoon, Lewis alerts us to the talents of Ashton Shepherd.

He writes:

"She's from Aladamnbama--
Sounds a lot like Patty Loveless--
Going to be big"

We believe it. Stay tuned.
