Ashlie Amber’s My Kind of Country Journey
Ashlie first realized her talent in music at six, thanks to her father, who complimented her regarding the same. With his demise shortly after, the artist took up music to pay homage to her father and his love for music. Inspired by various artists of color within the field of music, Ashlie hopes to become one of the shining beacons of the industry. Whenever anyone tries to tell her that her music is not “authentic,” she chooses to perceive it as a compliment, as it lets her know that she is different from everyone else.
Entering the Apple TV+ series, Ashlie was a find of Mickey Guyton, who had been aware of the aspiring artist’s work for some time. In turn, she admitted that she was an avid social media follower of Mickey and considered her someone to look up to. Surrounded by so much talent, Ashlie buckled up and was ready to ace the performance that would soon take place in front of Jimmie Allen and Orville Peck, along with Mickey.
To showcase her talent and represent her emotions best, Ashlie sang “Crazy for You,” a popular song by Madonna. While the three listeners enjoyed her performance, they did feel like she was holding herself back and not letting herself shine fully. Though it was hard for Mickey, she ultimately had to let Ashlie go, who admitted that she could have shown more but would not let the elimination bring her down.

An avid music creator and listener, the artist decided to start her headliner show called ‘I Will Always Love You’ in honor of Whitney Houston.
Thanks to her breathtaking voice, Ashlie soon became recognized by many.

Due to her work, Ashlie often gets to travel all across Europe and the Caribbean, garnering fans everywhere she goes.
