The Lonely One (2018)
Growing up the daughter of a country music icon, her father is the late Glen Campbell, Ashley was surrounded by music at all times. Her parents encouraged her to sing and play the piano from an early age, not only did Ashley succeed at both but during her high school years she added an acoustic guitar to the arsenal of instruments she conquered. Catching a bite from the acting bug, Ashley pursued theater and would major in theater during her college years. When cast in a role that required Campbell to play the banjo, she fell in love with the instrument and even received help from her godfather/famous banjo player, Carl Jackson.
Ashley Campbell’s pursuit of music led her to tour with her father Glen Campbell on his farewell tour shortly after she graduated college. The years spent traveling the globe with her father would prove crucial as Ashely was able to hone her musical talents even further while on the road. This led to an appearance on Rascal Flatts’ 2012 hit “Banjo” where she played on the track and even appeared in the video, inspiring Campbell to pursuit a solo career even further. Campbell had two songs featured in the 2012 Glen Campbell documentary, I’ll Be Me. At this time, she had scored a solo deal with Dot Records, a division of Nashville’s Big Machine Label Group. Ashley Campbell’s debut album The Lonely One was released on May 11, 2018.
