Presenting Ashley Forrest at Rams Head On Stage – Sunday May 19th!

Crofton native Ashley Forrest has traveled every bit of the distance that her debut album is named for.

“Seven Hundred Miles” represents a lifetime to Forrest. The 2006 Arundel High School graduate named her CD after the exact distance between her home and the Nashville recording studio where she and Grammy-nominated producer Mark Moffatt created a set of 10 songs that range from pop-country to country-pop to pure country.

Forrest and her band will have their coming-out party Sunday at Rams Head On Stage. The 1:30 p.m. all-ages performance will feature opener Meredith Holliday, who is also a member of Forrest’s back-up band, Detour. Tickets are $15 and available here.

At 24 years old, Forrest has visions of the CMAs dancing in her head and maybe even a career similar to that of country pop divas Carrie Underwood, Taylor Swift and Faith Hill. The Country Music Association named Forrest to its annual “Artists to Watch in 2013” list.

She has already played many private and corporate events, as well as well-received performances at the Anne Arundel County Fair, the Naptown barBAYq festival and Dover International Speedway – “The Monster Mile” – where she sang “The Star-Spangled Banner.”

Forrest has also been a featured artist on local country music radio stations WMZQ (98.7-FM) and WPOC (93.1-FM).

Among the songs featured on “Seven Hundred Miles” are four written by Forrest and six written by major Nashville songwriters. If Forrest dipped her big toe in the water with her first regional single “Eyes Wide Open,” which was released as a pre-album teaser, she dove in the deep end with the release of her first worldwide single, “Pourin’ Over Me,” which beat out several established country artists on the Music Row Breakout Chart.

Ashley Forrest and her band will meet fans and sign autographs following Sunday’s matinee show at Rams Head On Stage. For more information on Forrest, visit and follow her on Twitter and Facebook.
