Ashley Campbell's debut album THE LONELY ONE out 9 March 2018

Ashley Campbell (daughter of the late Glen Campbell), releases her first album THE LONELY ONE on March 9, on HumpHead Records (HUMP210) to coincide with her appearances at Country to Country on Friday March 9 at SSE Hydro Glasgow and Country To Country on Saturday March 10 at the O2 London.
She co-wrote every song on it including the title track, "The Lonely One."
"This is the theme of the album and the songs reflect the different kinds of loneliness that a person can go through"
On the difficulty of separating her own musical story/journey with her famous father, Glen Campbell.
"You can’t really hide the fact that I’m Glen Campbell’s daughter. I hope that people don’t think that it’s the only thing that I am. I would hope that my music and my musicianship would speak for itself. Hopefully, they can connect with my music separately. On the other hand, it has helped a lot. It helps a lot because people have a lot of love for my dad so they seem a little more open to hearing my music and hearing what I have to say."
That Nashville Sound On the album: "I want people to be able to listen to it years from now and not identify it with a specific time or era."
Former Maverick Magazine creator and Editor Alan Cackett writes:
Ashley Campbell is a multi-talented entertainer. A newcomer with years of heavy touring under her belt. There’s no denying her iconic country pedigree, but Ashley is attracting the spotlight these days with her style, talent and unique sound all her own. I was delighted to be invited to write the liner notes for this outstanding debut album by Ashley Campbell. The album is full of songs intended to make listeners question everything they’ve ever known, and to remind them, to think, smile, laugh and even cry. It’s a mixed bag of sounds and styles presented in a unique and distinctive way, with a range of emotions that connect both instantly and universally. Flawlessly talented and using her voice to tell the stories of her life, Ashley Campbell has found and claimed something she loves and is now poised as heir to that Campbell lineage, pushing into new territory with a skill and acumen that represents everything happening in today’s music.

Big Machine Label Group introduced the multi-talented Ashley Campbell with her debut Dot Records single, "Remembering" (written with Kai Welch). She joined the now shuttered Dot Records (a division of Big Machine Label Group) roster that included Steven Tyler, Maddie & Tae, Drake White and 20-year-old newcomer Tucker Beathard and more.
The daughter of the late Country Music Hall of Fame member Glen Campbell and the goddaughter of Grammy award winning musician Carl Jackson, there’s no denying her iconic Country pedigree. 
Her music is a mix of her wide-ranging influences, combining the old-school country sound popularized by her father during the ’60s and ’70s with contemporary Americana, rootsy folk, and country-pop.
