Ash Bowers signs with Stoney Creek
Monday, June 29, 2009
– Singer/songwriter Ash Bowers signed with the new Stoney Creek Record label. Bowers' new single, Stuck,
will arrive at radio in July.
"The first time I saw Ash perform live I was completely blown away. His passion for performing was extremely apparent in his stage presence," said CEO/President Benny Brown.
In 2003, Bowers gave up his day job as a John Deere tractor mechanic to hit the road and follow his dream of music. His CD was produced by Buddy Cannon, Kenny Chesney's producer. Bowers wrote seven songs. Struck was written by Billy Montana and Frank Myers and is going for radio adds Aug. 17.
Megan Mullin also is on the label founded by Brown, who started Broken Bow Records as well.
