NEWS |Ashley Cooke Reflects On Whirlwind 2022 With 'it's been a year'

Rising country artist Ashley Cooke closes out her breakthrough year with a surprise drop of 'it's been a year', out everywhere now. 

Arriving just before year's end, 'it's been a year' serves as a sentimental rewind on her unprecedented 2022. 

Out today with a special video recap, the wistful ballad penned by Cooke, Brett Tyler, and Will Weatherly reflects on the dedication Cooke has put towards her craft – leading to a whole new level of success – with the consequence of time flashing before her eyes. 'It's been three hundred sixty-five of record lows and record highs / Loving and losing, fun and confusing, praying and shifting gears / For the minute you got, it's probably a lot, more than you wanna hear / So all I'll say is, 'it's been a year,' Cooke confesses.

'This year has been nothing short of a whirlwind. I inked my first deals, played bucket list stages, went on four major tours and a country-wide radio tour, met thousands of new people and even a few of my heroes, fell in and out of love and spent more nights sleeping on a van bench than in my bed,' shares Cooke. 'It held some good, some bad, and some of the greatest moments of my life so far - and I wouldn't trade a single minute of the last 365 days. Thank you all for being on this journey with me and cheers to many more.'

As her packed touring schedule comes to a close for the year, Cooke gears up to visit her UK fans for the first time to play the Spotlight Stage at the C2C: Country to Country music festival in London (March 10th) and Glasgow (March 11th). For tickets and additional information, click here.
