Biography

Ash Bowers was eight-years-old when he saw his future. The crystal ball was the family television set, and the vision came in the form of a movie his mother had rented—Great Balls of Fire, the film biography of Jerry Lee Lewis.

He was growing up in a working-class family in Jackson, Tennessee, and he would need a lot more than dreams to make it to the country music capital 130 miles east on I-40. Determination came with his sometimes-tough upbringing. He played open mic nights until, at 20, he put together his first band. Just a year later, he was offered a Pacific tour through Armed Forces Entertainment that had listened to a three-song demo he and his band had cut in Jackson.

Ash was encouraged to come to Nashville and soon after, was restricting his playing to weekends and spending his weeks commuting daily to Nashville. The kind of commitment it took to drive 260 miles a day, five days a week—it quickly paid off. Just a year and a half after he began commuting to Nashville, a CD of his material reached Broken Bow/Stoney Creek Records president Benny Brown, the result, a record and publishing deal.

Ash Bowers has currently been writing for his album while working in the studio with legendary producer Buddy Cannon, known for his work with Kenny Chesney. Reba McIntire, George Jones and Willie Nelson, among many others, producing his forthcoming Stoney Creek Records debut album.
