Will she be the first black female country singer with a #1 hit?
Ashlie Amber is a country vogue singer who is breaking out of the norms of country music. Ashlie is infusing her own brand of country, pop and R&B into her new music. She spent years working on cruise ships as a headliner for various ship lines after being on the singing show American Idol. We spoke about her days traveling the world to different countries and how she handled being away from friends and family for long periods. She shares a great story how she met her manager reaffirming the idea that you never know who you will meet and what impact they will have on your life.
She has a new song being released this week, Those Nights, so she is excited to share the song and start touring as soon as possible. The lockdown affected her ability to earn income, like so many of us, but it also gave her time to reflect and focus where she wants to go with her career.
