Independent singer/songwriter and Texas native Ashliegh Lisset has always had a love for music. As a young girl, she would roam around the house with her iPod, singing along to her favorite artists.
By the age of fifteen, Ashliegh knew she wanted to pursue a career in the entertainment industry. Determined to follow her dream, she began making trips to write and record in Nashville, Tennessee. “I found so much comfort in music,” she explains. “It definitely helped me heal during some of the darkest moments of my life. When I’m feeling down, I can write about it and get all of my emotions out.”
In 2014, Ashliegh released her first single called “Kill the Headlights.” Not only was the song co-written by songwriting superstars Luke Laird and Hillary Lindsey, but also by Ashliegh’s idol – Carrie Underwood. The song spent eight weeks on The Highway’s “Top 30” chart and was featured on Billboard’s “Top 100” chart. “Kill the Headlights” sparked a talent deal with the William Morris Agency, crossing yet another career milestone off Ashliegh’s bucket list.
In 2016, Ashliegh released her next single, “Goodbye,” co-written by country music sensation Kelsea Ballerini. The song gained recognition by CMT’s Cody Allen, which prompted Kelsea to tweet how happy she was that the song found a good home.
Ashliegh went on to release “Daughter of an American Hero” in 2019, honoring her late father. When Ashliegh was just eleven years old, her father, who was serving his second tour for Operation Iraqi Freedom, was killed in the line of duty. The song received positive reviews from several news outlets and Ford featured Ashliegh in its Military Truck Month commercial. Ashliegh is currently an ambassador for the Folds of Honor organization and shares her story to help encourage others.
To date, Ashliegh’s music has garnered over 500,000 streams. She has opened for the likes of Sam Hunt, Tyler Farr, Brett Young, Joe Diffie and Jerrod Niemann, just to name a few. She’s performed at Nashville’s famous CMA Festival, including the Riverfront Stage, Highway Stage and AT&T Stage. She has also partnered with notable brands like Bud Light, St. Ives, National Geographic, Just Fab, 310 Nutrition and more.
Through all of her triumphs thus far, Ashliegh still maintains her humble, passionate and kind-hearted nature. “I hope my story will help people overcome obstacles and inspire them to pursue a dream.”
