The New Father Was Recently Recognized Among Pandora’s
Country Artists to Watch 2023 List
NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Rising singer-songwrighter Chase Wright and girlfriend Brittany Norris announce the birth of their first son together, Ashur Lee Wright. Ashur was born on Monday, Nov. 21 at 5:20am. At the time of his birth, Ashur weighed 7 lbs, 13.5 oz and measured 21 1/4 inches long. Both mother and son are doing well.
“I knew when I met Brittany that she was special, and I couldn’t imagine living life with anyone else. We both knew shortly after officially dating that one day we wanted to grow the family we were building. Neither of us knew exactly when that would be, but God had a plan for us the entire time,” Wright shared with People. “Brittany had already had her first child, Eden, when we first met. Initially, she thought that already having a child would scare me away, but it really only excited me to get to know her more. Being a father is something I’ve looked forward to for a very long time, and I was excited to fit into that parental role with her as our relationship grew.”
“Meeting Eden almost two years ago and becoming a parental figure to her gave me a crash course on what it meant to be a father. Even though I’ve had some practice, having a child of your own is a bit different,” he shared with a laugh. “When I met Eden, she was about a year and a half old, so I missed her entire infant stage. I learned a lot from her, but I feel like parenting a toddler can only prepare me so much for what adding Ashur to our family will be like.”
“In our first weeks home it's been quite a change of pace, and time management has taken on a new meaning. However, the love and excitement of a new baby brother and son has been something that has truly changed our perspective on life,” added the new father. “We are so excited to welcome Ashur Lee to the world and introduce him to our country music family.”
Last week the new father was recognized among Pandora’s Country Artists to Watch 2023 list. Of the honor, Wright remarked, “2022 has been such an amazing and pivotal year for me both personally and professionally. To have it capped off by being named a 2023 country artist to watch by Pandora is such an honor. I am so grateful to be included in a group with such talented artists, and having the overwhelming support of Pandora moving into the new year only inspires and motivates me to keep working hard toward my dreams.”
The artist Billboard noted “continues to impress with original material” released debut album Intertwined last year. Produced by Jared Keim and Zach Abend, tracks like “Lying With You,” which has been getting airplay on SiriusXM The Highway, “Hangin’ On” and “What She Sees In Me” join fan-favorites on the album, including “Why Should We,” Wright’s debut single “My Kinda Morning” which MusicRow celebrated for its “melodies wrapped in spacious production, and rap-inspired cadences,” “Wish You’d Miss Me” that Country Now called “the quintessential heartbreak ballad” and “Drive” which led Sounds Like Nashville to implore listeners to “get in early with…this promising young artist.”
Most recently, Wright released his single “Hurt No More,” penned by Kane Brown, Jeremy Bussey, Ben Johnson, Taylor Philips and Wright. The song details the inner turmoil of longing for a past love, while simultaneously acknowledging its toxic effects, and is available to stream everywhere now.

ABOUT CHASE WRIGHT:
Chase Wright is doing more than make his childhood dreams come true: he’s introducing himself as a bold new Nashville artist with a freewheeling approach to genre, firm footing in relatable storytelling and soft spot for big choruses. Respect for country music’s way around a story without feeling beholden to it defines the Indiana native’s energetic songs, which rely on electric loops and pop-rock chords alongside more traditional sounds made from steel strings and wood. It’s a confident blend that belies the fact that Wright first picked up a guitar as a freshman track star at DePauw University. After graduating with a degree in economics, Wright packed his bags for Nashville, where he has since earned a publishing deal with Toby & Molly Music and signed with Morris Higham for management. 2022 was a breakout year for the rising star who was recognized by Spotify as a Hot Country Artist to Watch and named among SiriusXM’s Highway Finds class. Most recently, Wright was recognized among Pandora’s Artists to Watch 2023: Country list. Following the 2021 release of his debut album Intertwined, Wright continues to roll out new music with his current hit “Hurt No More” available to stream everywhere now. In total, fans have streamed his music to the tune of 135 million times.
