Hi! I'm Ash, and I have discovered my passion. I feel really lucky because it has given my life purpose. I think it can be tough to be a teenager. There's so much pressure from parents, teachers, and society in general; but when you feel passionate about something, it gives you a sense of direction and something positive to focus on. I decided I wanted to share my passion - and even wear it! I named my company "Fiercely Burning" because my passion for country music is fiercely burning.
I can remember going fishing with my Dad when I was 3 or 4. We'd be waiting on something to bite while listening to Toby Keith and Alan Jackson. Later, I found a connection with the lyrics of artists like Jason Aldean, Kacey Musgraves, and Eric Church. My parents exposed me to the legends of country music, and I introduced them to the "up-and-comers" of the industry.
Like anything else there are always life lessons to be learned, but I think "follow your arrow" and "the world's wide open" are pretty great ones. At the end of the day country music feels like family to me. It brings us together and takes us to a feel-good place. I want to be a part of this family, and hopefully this is just the beginning.....
