Ashley Dawn Krasinski describes herself as a super-mom by day and songwriter by night, but now she can add another accomplishment to her bio — actress.

The 28-year-old, who goes by the name Ashley Dawn, has been selected as a featured singer in a film about female country icon Patsy Cline, titled “Patsy.”

Dawn graduated from Pace High School in 2002 and currently resides in Atmore, Ala. with her husband, three children and oldest stepson, who attends college at Pensacola State.

She auditioned for “Patsy” in Mobile, Ala., in late December and received a call from Chance Film Productions last week with the exciting news.

According to John Russell, producer with Kansas City-based Chance Films, Dawn will be one of the 12 featured singers. The story revolves around a producer who does a nationwide search for someone to play the role of Patsy Cline. The final 12 artists who are considered for the role of Patsy will be featured singers in the film.

She started taking piano lessons at age seven and later picked up the guitar, playing in the school band and performing at small venues.

As a musician and singer, Dawn considers herself a versatile artist and a folk/rock performer.
