Today I am literally blown away to have Ashlyne Huff Revelette on the blog. Ashlyne's book FALLING STARS has been praised by country legends Reba McEntire and Matrina McBride – two of my favorite singers. Yes, I like country music. I like all music in fact! Seriously, if you saw my iTunes, your head would spin! Ashlyne is not just a writer, she was also a singer and opened for New kids On The Block and Jordin Sparks…read on my friend!

FALLING STARS is about Lily Black, who was the biggest name in country music at 12 years old, hobnobbing with Faith Hill and opening for the Dixie Chicks.  But fame is fickle, and Lily finds herself going from superstar to total nobody in just a few short months.

What I find super amazing is that because of Ashlyne's upbringing numerous details from the book are drawn straight from Ashlyne’s own life and her experiences growing up around some of Nashville’s biggest acts.

Guest Post

if you’d asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up, I would have had like three answers, depending on the day. A dancer (which I gave up the professional dream for when I broke the top of my foot doing a double back flip at gymnastics…I didn’t want to rely on my body for work if it broke that easily!), a singer (which, if you grew up with Faith Hill and LeAnn Rimes, etc. coming in and out of your house all the time, was a little daunting), and/or a writer (because of music and dance, it seemed clear I should write songs). In the entertainment world, my dreams turned into a so-called “Triple Threat”. And I went with it.

So, after years of watching the country artists my dad worked with and being a fly on the wall upstairs in his Nashville studio (I mentioned Faith and Leann already, but also, Keith Urban, Rascal Flatts were a couple from back then), I got my own chance. After three and a half years, I graduated from Belmont University–finish college, please!–with a business degree, emphasis in music…and I got a record deal.  A pop one at that. I wanted to work outside my own backyard, not just be known to all as Dann Huff’s daughter, even if I was honored to have that title. 

It never even occurred to me that I wasn’t writing nearly enough while I was on the road, touring with Honor Society, Jordin Sparks, New Kids on the Block, and Backstreet Boys. I recorded two albums, did two music videos (see ashlyne.co) and got to do awesome things like perform on Ellen, sing the national anthem at MLB, NFL, and NHL games, and go to award shows. Don’t get me wrong, I did write. I wrote in my journal like a mad woman–I have 27 now–and I constantly thought of ideas for new songs, only to realize they weren’t micro enough to be condensed into three minutes. They needed time. 

After being on the road for a few years, my heart churned. I was missing something. And then, it hit me: those ideas that I kept skipping over needed to be written. The stories needed to be told. So…a novel. 

Seeing as though I hated writing formal papers, I thought there was no possible way I could write more than a chapter without giving up. But it turned out, I’d found my purpose. To tell stories…oh, and I decided to write songs to go with it. Can’t give up on music completely, now!

Falling Stars
Author: Ashlyne Huff Revelette
Release Date: May 1st, 2015
Publisher: Clovercroft Publishing

At 12 years old, Lily Black was the biggest name in country music. She hobnobbed with country stars and opened for the Dixie Chicks while riding around in her own custom tour bus. But tastes are fickle, and she soon found herself going from epically famous to a total nobody in a few short months.
Fast forward five years: while Lily was once the star (and the stage name), real life Lilah Carson was content to leave the music industry behind forever and live life as a dutiful preacher’s daughter in Mobile, Alabama, until a second chance made her realize her love of performing wasn’t dead, just dormant.
Determined to make it in Nashville again, Lilah sets off to find her old manager. Armed with only her Bible, innate talent, and trusty best friend, what seems like the perfect plan suddenly begins to crumble. It turns out some people are not who you think they are. Backstabbing, cheating, and a tragic illness all stand in her way as she strives for success. This is certainly not the Nashville she left behind. Does Lilah have what it takes to make it again? Or was she really just a one hit wonder?
