“Ashley has been like a member of my family for many years,” The Voice coach says. “She’s been one of my favorite artists since before that. I challenge anyone to spend a little time with her and NOT fall in love. It’s time she gets her due as a solo recording artist and I’m so damn proud and excited to watch her star rise!!!”
