On this week’s episode of The OTT Podcast, I interviewed Ashley Gorley, four-time ASCAP Songwriter of the Year, who received his latest award from John Calipari last week. Ashley is also a Danville native and a huge Kentucky basketball fan, so he invited me to his studio outside Nashville to talk some songwriting and hoops. Highlights include…
— How a kid from Danville, Kentucky became one of the top songwriters in country music
— How he got his start and what it’s like to work with the likes of Carrie Underwood, Brad Paisley, and Luke Bryan
— How Calipari surprised him by presenting him with the award at the ASCAPs last week
— His favorite UK Basketball memory
— How he’s training for Calipari Fantasy Camp 2017
WKYT’s Jennifer Palumbo also came on to tease her big interview with John and Ellen Calipari, which will debut tomorrow night on WKYT.
