With the release of this single, Shepherd is one of the critical ‘ones to watch for 2008. Possessing a strong traditional country mentality, Shepherd seems to have fans and the industry abuzz. With a voice like hers, and a song like “pain,” it’s easy to see why. The vocal is strong,t he production is crisp and a lyric that’s Gretchen Wilson-like without the trailer trash mentality.  In the end, this a fine debut single that leaves you waiting with baited breath for Ashton Shepherd’s debut album to drop.

 Grade: B+
