Texas native Ashliegh Lisset has always had a love for music. By the age of fifteen, she knew she wanted to pursue a career in the entertainment industry. She began making trips to write and record in Nashville, Tennessee, determined to follow her dream. “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.
The country superstar released her current single "Stop the Bullet" (written by Phil Barton, Emily Shackleton, Adam Argyle and Victoria Banks) in November 2021 - and this tune may just be our favorite one yet.
Hold on heart, don't speak yet, if you do you might say something you regret...
Lisset's powerful, yet delightfully sweet, vocals lend the perfect pairing to a song that delivers a punch. With an important message about how hurtful words can be, "Stop the Bullet" directly hits the target when it comes to being a fan favorite.
