Ashley Campbell

Each Friday, Billboard presents Tomorrow's Hits, a weekly look at new and noteworthy acts making their way toward Billboard chart success.

Ashley Campbell

Ashley Campbell's major-label debut single "Remembering" (Dot) bubbles under Billboard's Country Airplay chart. The song is a breezy, yet moving tribute to her father, Glen Campbell and compliments the well-publicized dialog that the senior Campbell and his family have waged to raise awareness for Alzheimer's disease, which he continues to battle. His daughter is an accomplished banjo player and was a longtime member of her dad's touring band. –Jim Asker

Marian Hill

Philadelphia-based Marian Hill nears the Alternative Songs chart with "One Time" (Photo Finsih/Republic), up by 41 percent in plays, according to Nielsen Music. The duo, singer Samantha Gongol and producer Jeremy Lloyd (with saxophonist Steve Davit occasionally featured), takes its name from The Music Man characters Marian Paroo and Harold Hill. The song is from the pair's EP Sway. –Kevin Rutherford (@surfwax83)

Lipstick Gypsy

Lipstick Gypsy's funky "The Cure" (Epic) is building at pop radio, following the duo's showcase performance on NBC's Today (Oct. 14) as Elvis Duran's Artist of the Month. The single from the pair, producer Chris Liggio and singer/songwriter John Thomas, blends pop vocals (think Nick Jonas or Justin Timberlake) with a throwback, springy '80s springy bass line that evokes Jeffrey Osborne's "Stay With Me Tonight." –Keith Caulfield (@keith_caulfield)
