A fan of rhinestones and bling, Ashley Forrest, 25, is a rising country singer from Crofton.

This Ravens fan's latest album, Seven Hundred Miles, was released April 16 and she will be performing at Rams Head On Stage in Annapolis on Sunday. Before heading to the show, we caught up with the singer to find out some of her OMG-worthy loves.


Worst pet peeve?

I don't let the little things get to me, and I am really bubbly, so I don't really have one.


What song are you hating/loving right now?

Bruno Mars' new song; I heard him live and I thought, "OMG, I just love his voice."

Last concert/gig you went to?

Carrie Underwood at 1st Mariner Arena.

How did you get your Southern accent living in Maryland?

I can't explain it. I love country music so much that I just feel it when I sing.

Your worst habit?

When I get excited, I tend to talk and talk and talk about whatever it is. I talk a mile a minute.


Trend that has exceeded its natural lifespan?

Smoking, I really dislike smoking.

Last movie you liked/disliked?

"Django Unchained": Great movie, but it was really long.

TV show(s) you can't get enough of?

I watch a lot of music TV, like music videos. I also watch "Ridiculousness" in the background sometimes when I am practicing music. I love to laugh.


Last great meal you had?

I've been cooking a lot recently. Salmon is my favorite and I marinated it in this teriyaki sauce, with Old Bay, and put it with some crab meat on alfredo. It was delicious.

Favorite and most loathed fashion statements?

OMG, anything that is blingy, sparkly or decked out in rhinestones, I just love. Oh and my cowboy boots. They are so comfy.

Favorite place to get a drink in Baltimore?

Power Plant Live that's where I went for my 21st birthday. With all those bars there, it's a good time.


Best advice you ever got?

Never give up.

Favorite thing about Baltimore?

Night life is awesome. And how passionate Ravens fans are.
