As a young girl growing up on a farm just outside Lawrence, Ashley Ray recalls being exposed to music that made a lasting impression. Ray was in fifth grade when she began playing acoustic guitar, a cheapie her mother had purchased from a pawn shop.
By the time she graduated from Lawrence High School in 2002, Ray had determined to pursue a career in music. She headed to Nashville to get a music business degree at Belmont University, the quintessential training ground for country industry professionals. This 20 something singer-songwriter has a lot going for her these days. Her self-titled EP was released in May on Show Dog-Universal, a mighty Nashville label that boasts a 10-artist roster featuring such heavyweights as Toby Keith and Trace Adkins.
It’s taken eight years toiling in the Nashville scene, but Ray has finally begun to see the work pay off. After years writing material for other artists without a proper recording of her own, she’s witnessed two albums released within the span of a few months that showcase her own sincere, twangy voice.
