Ashley Baker’s new single, Cigarette Smokin, has been smokin’ up the airwaves since it’s release to worldwide radio promotion by Musik and Film.
Ashley started her career at 16 years old with the lead female role in the feature film “The Old Livingston House” in which her first single “Summer Daze” was featured.
“Summer Daze” got picked up by IRCountry Radio Network out of Dallas and went straight to #1 on their request chart. It has since gone on to be the 3rd most requested song of all time on the network. Ashley then went to Nashville and met Peter Young, a young amazing producer, he helped her pick “Bye Bye” and “What a Day to Shake a Heartache” and put her with some of the best known musicians in Nashville. She cut those records and they caught the attention of Al Shiltz and Mike Martinovich with The Consortium Group in Nashville who have worked with such names as Billy Joel, The Judd’s, Bruce Springsteen, Jason Aldean, Thompson Square and Band Perry and were instrumental in founding Broken Bow Records. She then heard from Randy Guidry and Debbie Holley of Holley-Guidry a well known management and consulting firm in Nashville who guided the career of Tracy Lawrence. These people have been very instrumental in guiding her career thus far and she owes them a great deal of gratitude.
Ashley went back into the studio and cut “Country Girls Rock” which went to #1 on Hot Country 102.9 in North Carolina and 76 Country in Branson and entered the top 50 on Real Country Radio in Tokyo. Ashley’s “Country Girls Rock” was the only independent picked by All Country 99.9 Radio in France along with 15 other United States country songs for the launch show when they changed their format to country, all of the other songs were artists signed on major labels. “Country Girls Rock” hit the TOP 5 in sales in Modern Country on CDBABY, one of the largest online distributors of music.
Ashley went back to Nashville this past summer and recorded “Might Be Today” which went to #6 on 102.9 Hot Country the same week “Country Girls Rock” entered the TOP 50 on Real Country Radio in Tokyo, Japan.
She is currently playing on the road with her band The Neon Truckers and has a new single scheduled for September release.
