Danville's Gorley piling up hits

April 16, 2008

Ashley Gorley, son of Glenn and Sandy Gorley of Danville, is experiencing significant success both professionally and personally these days.

As a songwriter, he's had three songs in the top 10 for the last month. After 35 weeks on the country charts, Jason Aldean's "Laughed Until We Cried" is currently at No. 5 and still climbing.

Also earlier this week, Gorley earned his third No. 1 hit with Trace Adkins' "You're Gonna Miss This" - the fastest-rising song of Adkins' career. It has been in the No. 1 spot for three weeks.

In March, Gorley held the No. 1 spot for two weeks with Carrie Underwood's "All-American Girl," a song Gorley co-wrote with Underwood. This is Gorley's second No. 1 song from Carrie Underwood. "Don't Forget To Remember Me" topped the charts in the summer of 2006.

On March 14, during "All-American Girl's" second week atop the charts, Gorley and his wife Mandy welcomed their third child into the world. It was an all-American boy, Kyler Lewis Gorley, weighing 8 pounds, 3 ounces, and measuring 19 inches long. Kyler joins big sister Sadie, 3, and big brother Caleb, 5.

Gorley is a 1995 graduate of Danville High School and a 1999 graduate of Belmont University in Nashville.
