Ashley was first launched to fame in the year 2000 on the hit ABC series "Making The Band" which chronicled the formation of a pop super-group. The now Diddy adopted franchise was originally the brain child of boyband guru Lou Pearlman, responsible for the formation of groups like The Backstreet Boys and *Nsync. "Making The Band" was the first reality show to be picked up by a major television network paving the way for countless reality and talent shows since. Plucked from tens of thousands of contestants, Ashley's talent and undeniable heartthrob appeal made him an obvious choice for the show's five part vocal group OTOWN. OTOWN experienced incredible success in just a short period of time, selling over 5.6 million albums, touring internationally and going on to be the first reality show cast with a 2nd and 3rd season. O-Town is most widely recognized for their number one smash single, "All or Nothing".
