Whether she is singing and performing, raising money to help veterans, or donating her time to animal welfare organizations, Official CMT artist ASHLEY WINELAND is leaving an impression on everyone whose path she crosses. The country artist from Glendale, Arizona, became fascinated by storytelling through music after her father gifted her studio recording time for her 13th birthday. This was the beginning of what would develop into a full-fledged, full time music career. In short order, Ashley has made her mark in the business of musical entertainment, bringing a high-energy performance peppered with both her original compositions and covers of some popular favorites, mixing her “old school” country roots with today’s modern sounds—which explains her appeal to audiences of all ages and musical tastes.
Her critically-acclaimed debut CD, “Family Business”, featuring original compositions, garnered significant airplay on radio stations worldwide. However, it was her live performances and engaging stage presence that caught the attention of the music industry…and some significant endorsements--Ashley was named the very first “Alvarez Breakthrough Artist”, with Corral Boots soon following, signing Ashley as one of their celebrity spokespeople.
Ashley quickly became a frequent guest on television and radio shows and often is the subject of print media. She graced cover of the global music publication ION Indie Magazine in December 2014 and appeared inside in a feature article, and in September of 2016, again commanded the cover of another prestigious publication, City to Country Magazine, along with a feature interview—and has been the subject of numerous other newspaper articles and music blogs. A favorite on the festival circuit, Ashley has appeared at Ostrich Festival (supporting Parmalee), West Valley Fair and Music Fest (supporting John Michael Montgomery), Road to Country Thunder and Country Thunder. She also headlined at the legendary country venue Reo Palm Isle in Longview, Texas, on whose stages have performed icons such as Elvis Presley, Willie Nelson, and a plethora of other music icons.
As Ashley looks to the future, she envisions having her music reach an even larger audience and taking the next exciting steps in her journey!
