Sign up For Lauren Ashley and the Trainwreckers email updates!
Twenty-Five year old Lauren Ashley is not your mother’s country artist, even though she is inarguably influenced by legends like Dolly Parton and Loretta Lynn. She’s not your sister’s country artist, either, even if she has the same fire as some of the young modern genre superstars. Nor is she your brother’s country artist, even though she can hang with the boys, fronting her own band The Trainwreckers.
She’s actually all of theirs, since her music is so universal and broad in its appeal. She writes her own songs and tells her own stories. Her music has moments of sass and spark, but it’s also soft and sweet. The tunes are equal parts heft and heart. She can throw down with the dudes, all the while being relatable to the ladies.
Lauren Ashley isn’t cashing in her chips or compromising who she is for anyone. She is just being true to herself.
She is, in fact, a refined rebel, whose spirit cannot be tamed or broken and who is almost possessed by the desire to speak to her listeners through her songs. “I have stuff to say, so I’m gonna say it,” says the girl from small-town Georgia.
