Her music is a mix of wide-ranging influences: old-school country, contemporary Americana, rootsy folk, and country-pop. Ashley's melodies embrace a familiar "high lonesome" yet are unmistakably her own.

Sponsorship Information

Why Become a Sponsor for Change the Tune?

The Family Center is breaking multi-generational cycles of child abuse, neglect, and trauma by empowering parents to raise children who can then reach their highest potential.

We have a vision that all children will grow up in safe, stable, nurturing relationships and environments.  Child abuse and neglect is recognized as a serious public health concern that causes lifetime physical, psychological, and behavioral problems for children and impacts communities for generations. 

TFC  works alongside parents to build connection, trust, and empathy with their children. Parents learn about the impact of trauma on early brain development, how to build resiliency in their children, and how to better engage with and support them as they grow. Over 2,700 middle Tennessee children are living with more supportive, nurturing parents this year because of The Family Center's parenting programs.

Change the Tune is an annual event which provides critical funding for The Family Center. Your sponsorship matters...become a change maker today.
