If you grew up in the middle of nowhere, this one’s for you.
Inspired by a young girl kicking rocks on the side of the road, “Hang In There Girl” is a song for anybody feeling trapped in their little town, an encouraging word from someone that’s been there too.
“After seeing a girl on the side of the road kicking the rocks at the end of her driveway, and I knew exactly how she felt. I’m proud of the way I grew up, I grew up in the middle of nowhere too, but I know how frustrating it can be when you feel like you’re trapped.”
And once again, Ashley delivered another impeccable acoustic performance.
Her new album Never Will is available now, and if you haven’t already, I go get your hands on that. It’s fantastic.
