ASHLEY HERTZOG EMBRY
Like the soulful singers she adores, Ashley has a smooth touch she uses to keep a deal flowing from solicitation to closing. Our EVP of Creative and Acquisitions spent seven years managing catalogs of Combustion Music and My Good Girl Music before joining Hearts Bluff in 2013. When she isn’t swooning over old Otis Redding, you might find her promoting her 2016 memoir “Letters To My Papa.”
FAVORITE LYRIC FROM THE CATALOG:
I’m Movin’ On (Phillip White and D. Vincent Williams)
“I’ve lived in this place and I know all the faces…But I never dreamed home would end up where I don’t belong. I’m Movin’ on.”
I grew up in a small Pennsylvania town, where virtually no one moves away. At 18 I moved to Nashville to attend Belmont University, and stopped at a Rascal Flatts concert in Saltville, VA on the way. They sang this song for their encore. My mama and I stood in the crowd, arms around one another, swaying, crying, and singing along to every word.
