She's spent the last three years in Nashville growing her music career, and tonight, Ashlee Hewitt was back in Grand Forks for a special show.

The Lancaster, Minnesota native re-united with her former band to put on a show at the Empire Arts Center.

Dozens of Hewitt's friends and family were in the audience tonight to listen to her perform her songs.

Hewitt says since her appearance on Nashville Star last year, she's travelled across the country, but admits she misses home.

"it's really lonely to be on the road, because you're going so many different places and once you establish a friendship with certain people, you're always leaving right after that so it's hard to have people that you can stay connected with and I love coming home to see family because they're always going to be here for me," Hewitt said.

Hewitt spent the last week with her family and friends.

But after tonight's show, she flew back to Nashville.
