“I believe with God anything is possible, and any mountain can be climbed! God gave me a dream & I’m going to use it to the best of my ability to serve my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! My song belongs to Him!”
Ashley was raised by her loving grandparents in the small town of Lashmeet, WV. She was always singing in church. She use to make up songs off the top of her head when she was only five and sing them during the service. From that moment on, she knew someway, somehow, God was going to use her for something. She started playing guitar at age seven, and wrote her first real song at age eleven. “My grandparents and mother knew that I should be doing something besides singing the songs I wrote in my bedroom, so they said I needed to make a cd.. and I did!” Ashley recorded her first album at fourteen titled “Let It Rain” at a musician’s studio in Sevierville, TN. “It was fun! I got to meet and work with a few musicians that had cuts on Dolly Parton’s past albums.” Ashley started singing at local talent shows, ball games, government meetings, and doing writing sessions at Curb music in Nashville, TN with a couple artists. “I was always doing something musical” she says. Ashley’s style can best be described as Contemporary Christian with Country Roots. Ashley fell in love with country music at the age of 12. She would sing along to Shania Twain, Sara Evans, and the Dixie Chicks. That's why you find so many country sounds in her new contemporary music, because she grew up with it. Nowadays Ashley is attending Into The Light Prayer and Worship Center where she sings and plays guitar for the worship team. Music has took on a new meaning for her as she pours out lyrics to her Heavenly Father. The closeness of her relationship with God has brought on new sounds, new lyrics, and truth. "Everything I write, I have either experienced it or have been inspired by it" Ashley says. "I'm excited about this new chapter in my life. It feels fresh, it feels exciting, and I'm ready to do whatever God tells me to do!"
