Name: Ashley Brooke Parker…. aka Ashe 😉
Location: Currently Lexington, Ky, but my blood belongs to Harlan County
Age: 32, yes, I’m THAT old…. lol
Piercings/Tattoos (How many? Where?): Several… Piercings, Belly button, & ears of course. I use to have my tragus pierced (little inner ear flap) but it ripped in my sleep and now it looks like I have a tiny pac man ear LOL,… as for tattoos, I have one on the inside of my foot that says “wake your dreams”, one on my shoulder blade “nothing is permanent”– oh the irony… two butterflies and a hibiscus flower on my lower back… On my right side, I have a hummingbird with the nose facing down looking as if it’s writing the word “inspire”, and on my left side I have a hummingbird that I designed myself, with the quote “she flies with her own wings”…

How do you like to say “hello”?
What were you doing five minutes before this interview?
Eating pizza, & submitting for a music video
What are some things you never leave home without?
My cell phone, and my cocoa butter stick (much better than chap stick)
What does your last outgoing text message say?
“How was your party”
What part of your personality gets you into trouble the most?
Outspoken & extremely honest. Sometimes people just don’t want to hear the truth.
What makes you laugh?
My daughter & some of the things she says — she’s hilarious. Also my life long friend, Beth. No matter what either of us are going through, we can call each other & crack up over just anything. It feels good having someone to do that with. Laughter just makes ya feel better.
Are you ticklish?
I don’t do ticklish. I despise being tickled. I will punch someone if they try to tickle me.
Let’s say I’m gonna give you $1,000 dollars. Where do you go to spend it? What would you buy?
I would pay off my student loan. Exciting, I know. Anything left over would go to whatever my daughter wanted.
What are some things guys do that get on your nerves?
When they lie over stupid stuff. Just tell the truth, it’s not that hard! Or when they leave the toilet lid up (I know it’s a man thing but it’s kind of gross). And if they don’t have manners. I’m old fashioned and would still like someone to open the door for me. If you get out of the truck and just walk into the restaurant without even seeing if I’m behind you, yeah, that’s not gonna work. Lol
Describe your worst date ever.
Hmmm… probably when everyone else at the table, along with the waitress, was getting hit on more than me, BY MY DATE. One of those moments, where I wanted to say “hello, remember me??” I was treated like one of the guys while he stayed busy showing everyone else his attention…. Lovely huh.
What music have you been listening to lately?
Lately, I’ve been listening to Sundy Best’s new album, Salvation City. I really like their songs “Southern Boy” & “Piece Of Work”
The musician you would most like to meet is…
James Hetfield. No question. I was so so close to meeting him once. I even got to tour the Metallica headquarters in San Fran, but none of the guys were there. Talk about exciting but disappointing all at the same time! It was still awesome though..
What was your first concert?
My very first concert, was George Jones. My Dad took me when I was maybe 12, 13… He played at Lincoln Memorial University, which is where I graduated college. Rest in Peace ole Possum.
What was the last concert you attended?
The Outside Lands Festival, in San Francisco a few years back. It was AMAZING to say the least. That was the closest I had ever been to Metallica at a concert, even had VIP passes but never saw any of them in the VIP room 🙁
Who are some of your favorite bands?
Metallica (of course), Alice In Chains, Pearl Jam, Stone Temple Pilots.. those have always been all time favorites. I can’t leave out some ole Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash. I have a variety of music that I appreciate.
What is your favorite line from a song?
“I hurt myself today
Just to see if I still feel”
— Johnny Cash/Nine Inch Nails… ya see? My variety again… I love that song by both artists. Just depends on my mood which version I listen to.
What do you do to relax?
Put on some comfy sweats, lay on the couch, watch movies or pick around on the guitar.
Name some things in your life you’re most proud of.
My daughter first & foremost. She is so intelligent. My family– we are small, but we are strong. My mother– she makes me very proud. She is the definition of strength… I’m proud of my Dad, who is no longer on this earth. No matter what all pain he endured, I never heard him complain… I’m proud of my “other Dad” (Greg) who came into my life when I was 5 yrs old. He’s one of the hardest working men I’ve ever known. My roots–I’m proud of being raised in a small town, coal mining community. And I guess I can say I’m proud of myself — I’m a single mom, who works hard to try to give my child a decent life. I know what it’s like to struggle which makes me appreciate any little thing… Being a single mom is the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do & even if I feel like I’m “barely getting by” at times, I know that at least I AM getting by, and that my daughter and I are blessed with what we do have. I’m also proud of my acting. I feel like I’ve been part of some really cool projects, being on television, as well as the big screen. I only hope that I will continue to soar & better things come my way.
How do you like to say “goodbye”?
See Ya’ll !!
