Ashley Gorley Scores 50th No. 1 Single as a Songwriter in Less Than 15 Years

Ashley Gorley scored his 50th No. 1 single as a songwriter as Locash’s “One Big Country Song” ascended to the top of the Mediabase chart this week.

Ashley is the first songwriter—in any genre—to tally 50 No. 1 singles on the Billboard Country Airplay chart or Mediabase chart. Remarkably, Ashley, 43, achieved the feat in less than 15 years by writing such hits as Carrie Underwood’s “Don’t Forget to Remember Me,” Luke Bryan’s “That’s My Kind of Night,” Cole Swindell’s “You Should Be Here,” Thomas Rhett’s “T-Shirt,” Blake Shelton’s “A Guy With a Girl” and many more.

“I love what I do,” says Ashley. “I love writing songs—the challenge, the process, and the way that each day brings something different. Fifty number ones is an achievement I’m proud of and grateful for, but I’m even more grateful for the friendships these fifth number ones have granted me—friendships with the artists that have given these songs life and success, my co-writers who motivate me to dig deeper each day, and mentors and early believers who continue to cheer me on. I stay inspired by my Tape Room family who I try to provide with those same beliefs, friendships, and mentorships. Thank you to everyone who made this possible, especially the radio teams who work tirelessly for these songs to be heard.”
