Spread the love

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Known for his ability to capture gritty realism and the raw emotions of love and heartbreak, Brantley Gilbert’s knack for crafting poignant ballads shines on new single “Over When We’re Sober,” a powerful duet with ACM New Female Artist of the Year nominee Ashley Cooke, available now via The Valory Music Co.
“From the moment we started writing, I knew this song was something special,” reflects Gilbert. “We knew we wanted another voice on it, and my producer Brock Berryhill suggested Ashley. I love her voice, and I knew she would take it to the next level. I’m grateful to have someone as talented and dedicated as her join me on this song.”

“When Brantley called me about this song, I listened to the demo and it was an immediate yes,” shares Cooke. “I’ve been a fan for truly so long – in fact, my Christmas present from a college boyfriend one year was a road trip to Atlanta just to see BG’s show. It’s such an honor to get to be on a song with someone I’ve admired for so long. Not to mention, one of the realest, funniest, most talented guys I’ve met on this journey so far. So thankful BG wanted me on this one!”
Written by Gilbert with Jason DeFord (Jelly Roll), Brock Berryhill and Justin Wilson, Gilbert and Cooke bring a dynamic blend of passion and regret to “Over When We’re Sober,” underlining the complexities of yearning:
            It’s only over when we’re sober
            We don’t believe it when we say goodbye
            We always say we want some closure
            Last night was just another last time
            Rewind to I hate you and you hate me
            ‘Til three shots of that whiskey
            Turns into I miss you and you miss me
            They say it’s over when it’s over
            But they don’t know us
            It’s only over when we’re sober
Along with today’s release of “Over When We’re Sober,” Gilbert is celebrating two new RIAA Certifications from his Platinum-certified album Halfway to Heaven, as “My Kind Of Crazy” reaches Platinum-certification, while “Fall Into Me” is now Gold-certified.

The Georgia native has mined a rich vein of conflict between the party and the pew on all his albums, with his music being adopted as the soundtrack to both Saturday night and Sunday morning by audiences around the world.

Along with the new tracks, he’ll perform songs across his discography, which includes back-to-back Platinum albums and seven No. 1 hits: RIAA 7x Platinum-certified “Bottoms Up,” 2x Platinum “Country Must Be Country Wide,” 2x Platinum “You Don’t Know Her Like I Do,” 2x Platinum “One Hell of An Amen,” Platinum-certified collaboration with Lindsay Ell “What Happens In A Small Town,” and two chart-toppers as a songwriter with CMA Song of the Year nominee “Dirt Road Anthem” and “My Kinda Party.” For additional information, visit  or follow him on Instagram, TikTok and Twitter @BrantleyGilbert and
About Ashley Cooke
With Big Loud / Back Blocks Music Country artist Ashley Cooke, it’s best to know what you’re getting into – because this emerging star is the definition of more than meets the eye. A graceful exterior matched by a casual-cool nature. Skillfully crafted lyrics and a knack for unforgettable performance. Effortless vocal beauty and a bold sense of internal grit, freely mixing it up with the boys while she rallies the girls. And most important, a passion for capturing the magic between heartbeats, each moment as unique as she is. Still early in her journey, being herself has already served Cooke well. It has led to over 270M global streams with chart climbing hits like “Never Til Now” with Brett Young, Ryman and Grand Ole Opry debuts, national TV appearances on ABC’s The Bachelorette and NBC’s TODAY, tours with Luke Bryan, Jordan Davis, Cole Swindell, Brett Young and more.
Hailing from Parkland, Fla. and moved by emotional hit makers like Taylor Swift, Rascal Flatts, Ed Sheeran and more, Cooke embraces the energy of pop and depth of Country, writing her first song by age 11. Cooke moved to Nashville at 18 and attended the prestigious Belmont University – but unlike so many others, she did not study music. After entering the schools revered Country Showcase on a whim and winning, Cooke decided to pursue music for a year. When the pandemic had other plans, Cooke went to TikTok where she built a thriving fanbase, writing and sharing Country music on her own terms.
And now, the next chapter begins with her debut album shot in the dark. Unfolding as if they were ripped from pages of her personal journal, Cooke’s sun-kissed blend of two-lane pop Country is on full display in the collection’s 24 tracks, inspired by true tales of love, heartbreak and all the moments in between. Fully capturing the essence of a daring twenty-something growing up, chasing her dreams and taking risks, Cooke infuses heartfelt lyrics, captivating melodies and raw relatability as she invites listeners to come along for the ride. The striking debut has already garnered Cooke praise from Billboard who named her the July 2023 Rookie of the Month, with additional praise pouring in from People, American Songwriter, The Tennessean and more. Cooke went on to win her first CMT Award for Breakthrough Female Video of the Year at the 2024 CMT Awards before being nominated for ACM New Female Artist of the Year, adding to previous recognition as one of MusicRow’s 2023 Discovery Artist of the Year and Next Big Thing as well as iHeartCountry’s On The Verge artist. Meanwhile, her award-winning single “your place” continues to take her career to new heights as she spins in the Top 5 at Country radio stations nationwide.
