Here's How Much Ashley Gorley Is Actually Worth

Kentucky native Ashley Gorley is widely praised for his songwriting skills in the realm of country music. Gorley's songs tend to find themselves at the top of the charts including, "Why Me," "Rewind," and "Wake Me Up." Whether he is writing for legends like Carrie Underwood and Luke Bryan, or newcomers such as Sean Stemaly, Gorley knows how to write a hit.

Gorley has been writing songs for almost twenty years and over 300 of his songs have been recorded and released (Via Tape Room Music). In an interview with CMT News Gorley shared his songwriting process. "I'm very all over the place, and I have to have two or three things happening at the same time to have anything happen at all," he explains. "So when I write, the melody and the lyrics come out at the same time. I love when somebody has some type of concept, and I can take it and take it to another place."

Gorley has recently set a new record that will surely increase his demand and his pockets.
