Ashley Puckett Interview Part 5

by Christian Lamitschka for Country Music News International


Lamitschka:  Many music fans today get their information about artists online. Do you have your own website and what will fans find there?


Puckett:  www.AshleyPuckett.com  i‘m also really into Facebook so you can find my artist page there Ashley Puckett Music, and on instagram and Twitter as well.


Lamitschka:  Tell us about the fan club and how people can join it.


Puckett: It‘s really easy.  Right now it‘s and Email list and i also have a fan club address it‘s all on the fan page on my website


Lamitschka:  What’s the best compliment a fan has ever given you?



Puckett: i‘ve had a few.  The ones that really get me is when i bring someone to tears or they have a memory that a song of mine has brought back and they share that story with me.  That is a huge compliment even though some may not think so.  That is letting me know that i‘m doing the best job i possibly can as a performer and as a person.


Lamitschka:  What’s your favorite song that you wish you could have recorded?



Puckett: hmm.  Theres a few.  Jo Dee Messina‘s Even God Must Get the Blues or Becasue You Love Me …. or Carol King‘s Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow … or Tin Man from Miranda Lambert.  I just love her and her writing and everything about her.


Lamitschka:  What message would you like to send your European fans?


Puckett: i‘m thankful for your support and i‘m glad you have taken the time to read this and learn a little about me!  I do what i do for me but i do it more for all of you, and i‘m glad you are enjoying my music and i hope somehow it makes a difference in your life to have heard even just one of my songs.


Lamitschka:  How do you feel about winning the New Music Weekly number one spot on the AM/FM country chart?  What has it done for your career?


Puckett: This was a huge deal for me.  It‘s kind of shown fans that i‘m just getting started and there‘s alot of me waiting to shine.  It‘s given me alot of recognition i didn‘t have before.  And it showed me personally that if i can have something like this happen with just our second single, there‘s alot of hope for me to achieve my goals if i keep going at it.


Lamitschka:  You have a new love in your life? Can you tell us something about it?


Puckett: New love? …. haha…. Love in Ashley‘s life is an intersting subject.  Just wait for album number two, you‘ll learn alot haha.


Lamitschka:  Fans are always hungry for good road stories. Do you have one you can share with us (come on don’t be shy)?


Puckett: haha i‘m better at writing songs than story telling, but there was this one time i was running late for a show, i worked a 12 hour day at my day job and even though i seem to always be on the go, i hate being in a rush, but i‘m really good at being late.  I showed up to a packed club walked inside, was angry about soemthing or another on top of that so i took a shot of fireball, grabbed my guitar and hit the stage.  That turned out to be one of the best performances i‘ve ever given.  I give all the credit to the fireball.  To this day if i‘m a little nervouse or anxious i‘ll tend to think back on that day and take a shot of fireball before i hit the stage.  I guess you can say that day had a lasting impact on me.


Lamitschka:  Describe what a perfect day is like for you.


Puckett: A perfect day for me is sleeping in a little, not having to rush while curling my hair, getting my four shot of espresso white mocha…. Its sunny outside but a little breezy, dress weather.  Having some type of fun thing planned, a new adventure, or even something casual and then a good night cap with a drink to talk about the day or just to wind down if i did something like skydiving haha.


Lamitschka:  Most careers don’t last as long as yours.  What’s given your career the staying power?


Puckett: I think alot of it is just me knowing that i have to just keep going becasue i‘m not where i want to be yet.  But i owe alot of this to alot of good people standing beside me, too.  Its all of that together.
