If you were to take just the number 1 country songs Ashley Gorley has written and, supposing their average length is, say, 3:30... played them back to back to back... you’re gonna be listening for just over 3 hours.

With his current tally of #1 songs at a ridiculous 51, Gorley seems to have a gear nobody else has. The awards he’s won and honors he’s received alone take up 16 lines on his Wikipedia page.

Even more remarkable, Ashley didn’t really grow up singing or even playing instruments much. He’s never been in a band. He never sought stardom as an artist. He WAS into music though- MTV, DJ-ing, and studying how songs, melodies and beats are put together. And maybe even more remarkable than all of that..? He’s still humble- still quick to deflect credit to co-writers and artists. And he still loves what he does.
