While she may be new to the solo artist life, Ashley Campbell is no stranger to traveling. After all, she did spend a good chunk of time touring in a band with her dad, Glen Campbell

Recently signed to the revived Dot Records, Ashley admits that she wasn't fully prepared for the solo radio tour she's currently on. In an interview with Billboard, she talks about what it's like doing a tour for her debut single. 

"It's been very fun...I'm having a good time. When I started the tour, everyone prepared me for much worse, but it's been a great experience. Either I have a positive outlook on life, or it's not as bad as they say," she joked.

Doing a radio circuit promoting her single "Remembering", Ashley Campbell reveals that she's been genuinely touched by the songs impact on people. 

"It's been great to see the reaction that my single has had on people when I play it live. It's very rewarding to have people tell me they enjoy my song and it made them feel something in their own personal lives."

"I feel a lot of different things when I play the song. It just depends. I like to think that it makes me feel like I'm giving my dad a hug."

The song had taken a while to write and she actually had stopped working on it for a while. Her and a friend worked on completing it once she moved to Nashville and when she sent her demo out, the filmmakers for the documentary about her father decided it was perfect for the film. 

Ashley says that she's cut about five songs for her upcoming album and she's thrilled with her new record label and executives.  

"I don't think I've ever seen a record executive with as much passion who is as hands-on as Scott. He really cares about the artists and the music and has his hand on every single thing that he does. You just think, 'OK, fearless leader. Lead me into the deep,'" she says with a smile."

Her tribute to her father and fight to end Alzheimer's disease is apparent in the emotional song of a daughter who will do the "remembering".

LYRICS BELOW

Four years old running up the stairs to your bed
Thunder rolls and I pull the covers over my head
You say it's just a storm, enjoy the show
You take me to the window, show me that it's beautiful
Never had to ask you to sing for me, it's just the way to put me at ease

Bone for bone we are the same
Bones get tired and they can't carry all the weight
We can talk until you can't even remember my name
Daddy don't you worry, I'll do the remembering

First guitar and I just wasn't getting it right
You showed me how to play it, said it doesn't happen overnight
In a couple years I come home and show you how I play "Blackbird"
Though I miss a couple notes you still say it was the best you ever heard

Never had to ask you to smile for me, it's just the way you put me at ease
Bone for bone we are the same
Bones get tired and they can't carry all the weight
We can talk until you can't even remember my name
Daddy don't you worry, I'll do the remembering
Daddy don't you worry, I'll do the remembering

Now I have to ask you to sing for me
And I have to show you the worlds to see
You're standing right in front of me and slipping away

Dad, I'd ask you to smile for me, it's just the way you put me at ease

Bone for bone we are the same
Bones get tired and they can't carry all the weight
We can talk until you can't even remember my name
Daddy don't you worry, I'll do the remembering
Daddy don't you worry, I'll do the remembering
