The exposure the program had received sure made it possible for the beauty to also share a portion of prominence which later enabled her to join the cast of "High School Musical" in the following year.
Given chance to display her singing skills in the project, Ashley wonderfully embraced her golden moment there as the show turned out to be the highest-rated telecast in Disney Channel history. Furthermore, both of her songs for the show's soundtrack, "Bop to the Top" and "What I've Been Looking For", amazingly broke into three Billboard charts, notably The Billboard Hot 100, making her the only female singer ever to have two singles debut simultaneously on the particular chart. With this fantastic achievement, it was not really surprising to thus find the brown-eyed star being signed under Warner Bros. Records to release an album of her own, titled "Headstrong". It was set on the market on February 6, 2007 and immediately went to #5 at Billboard Hot 200.
Ashley began dating her back up dancer Jared Murillo in November 2006. He was three years her junior.
