Ashland Craft embodies everything country music was built on. She’s authentic, she tells stories about real life and she isn’t afraid to say what’s on her mind.
On Friday, the singer/songwriter, who hails from South Carolina, unveiled her new single, “Two Wildflowers and a Box of Wine” and it’s destined to be her breakout hit. Penned by Craft, Rob Snyder, and Jonathan Singleton, the captivating country/Southern rock-infused tune finds Craft plotting her escape with a lover.
Determined to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, Craft plans their getaway.
“You bring the blanket and the Dixie cups/ I’ll be waiting outside/ You drive and I’ll draw hearts on the window / ‘Til we find what money can’t buy/ I’ll be all yours and you can be all mine/ Just two wildflowers and a box of wine,” she sings on the chorus.
Along with the release of the song, Craft makes her music video debut in the accompanying Justin Clough-directed clip.
“I felt like I could see the music video in my head before we even began writing it,” shares Craft. “‘Two Wildflowers and a Box of Wine’ is a song about slowing down and getting away. We wanted to paint a picture of two people who need nothing more than a star-littered sky, a couple of Dixie cups, a cheap box of wine, and time alone together to make everything in the world feel right.”
The music video features Craft and her fictional other half getting their revenge on a no-good boss and later riding off into the sunset together.
