Ashley Ryan’s Newest Twangy and Sassy Single “One Tractor Mind” (Review)
Corona, California native Ashley Ryan is a country songstress who grew up writing poetry and playing her guitar, which turned into her love for songwriting.
The singer + songwriter’s newest single “One Tractor Mind” joins a slew of tractor songs including Kenny Chesney’s “She Thinks My Tractor’s Sexy” and “Big Green Tractor.” Add this one to your playlist.
“One Tractor Mind,” written by Ryan, Frank Stopak, and Larry McCoy, is brimming with twang showcasing Ryan’s glossy vocal tastings overtop an unconventional fiddle-banjo melody. She sings, “Might be a little early for quittin’ time / But he knows what’s waitin’ on him when he gets inside / I know, he knows, I’m only thinking one thing / Somethin’ ‘bout his diesel’s got me comin’ undone / I’m always asking him for a ride / I got a one tractor mind.”
Ryan told The Boot, “I grew up singing ‘Before He Cheats’ and ‘Gunpowder and Lead.’ I really love fiddle in a song — I love that old traditional country, the grungy female country with the sassy drop D guitar and rolling banjo. One Tractor Mind’ was such a fun song to write, because you don’t often hear a lot of love songs from the farmer’s daughter’s perspective. I’m especially excited to release this one, since it pulls on that 90’s country sound we all love and grew up on. Whether you’re on a boat, cracking a cold one at the honkytonk or watching your man on the tractor, you’re gonna wanna crank this baby up!“
