Country-pop singer/songwriter Logan Ashley releases her debut single “God Save The Drama Queen”
by Christopher Smith
Knoxville born, Nashville based, country pop singer/songwriter Logan Ashley has released her debut single “God Save The Drama Queen”. The track is the first release from her upcoming EP.
“God Save The Drama Queen” is a pop-inflected enveloping slice of Americana, perfect for an end of summer backyard barbecue. Logan’s inspiration to write this track was fueled by the motivation to prove wrong the people in her life trying to knock her down. The track was written by Logan, along with Claire Douglas and Danielle Blakey (who also produced the track), and mastered by Sterling Sound (Meghan Trainor, Carrie Underwood, Shawn Mendes, Lady Gaga).
Logan Ashley has been playing guitar and piano from memory since she was only 8 years old. She started busking at the young age of 10, playing guitar and singing for crowds at the famous Market Square in Knoxville. It is this experience that made her fall in love with the art of performance. She realized then she had the incredible ability to connect with an audience of all ages. “I played for older people who loved classic country, I played for younger kids who loved Taylor Swift, and I played for the crowd in between who loved James Taylor, Fleetwood Mac, and Chicago. I was connecting with a 7-year-old and someone who was 70 – and everyone in between,” says Logan about the experience.
Logan Ashley has dubbed her sound ‘Southern Blue-Eyed Soul’ due largely to the influential female singers she emulated growing up from Dolly Parton and Patsy Cline to Karen Carpenter, Bonnie Raitt, and Stevie Nicks.
Even her nickname is an homage to her musical leanings, LALA. Nothing trite, it is an acronym for Logan Ashley and she has it tattooed on her left arm above her wrist as a reminder of the power of music to move people. Her mission is to influence people to be kind and not be afraid to be their true self – no matter where they start or where that leads.
