Ashley Cooke fans will be thrilled on August 6th with the release of her new song “Good Goodbye” featuring Jimmie Allen.
Cooke was raised between the coasts of Florida and California and has been writing and recording in Music City ever since winning Belmont University’s Country Showcase. Cooke is growing an impressive fanbase as a rising singer-songwriter on TikTok with over 580k followers and over six million likes and she co-founded her own content creation studio The 615 House. Her recent summer releases “Already Drank That Beer” and “Under” have both seen great success on major playlists and Sirius XM The Highway. Cooke is the cover of Spotify’s Radar Country artist of the month and is gearing up to open for BRELAND’s September tour.
Allen was born in Milton, Delaware, and moved to Music City in 2007. Allen’s first single “Best Shot” in 2018 was the second most-added song to country music radio playlists and number 1 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart.
“Good Goodbye” is a lyrically charming country-pop tribute to a healthy break-up with R&B stylings mixed with rock undertones. The delightful mesh of melodies is enhanced by how perfectly Cooke’s penetrating vocals are complemented by Allen’s resonating tones.
“Saw it coming from a mile away sat awhile in the driveaway. Just me and goodbye counting down the time. Last chance for a memory. So baby tell me what’s it gonna to be. Crying here in the dashboard lights, or heading inside for one more night? I know that this is over and it isn’t going to change but if we ain’t gonna make it baby let’s just say we make it a good goodbye.”
Admitting a relationship is over is difficult and it can be even harder to let it go. Leaving on good terms may not be easy but the effort for a “good goodbye” is worthwhile to honor the integrity of a good relationship.
“Love me for the last time, wrap me in your arms like we never grew apart, come and kiss my lips take me back to when you were all my heart was chasin’ if we’re gonna stay and make it a good goodbye.”
“Good Goodbye” is a beautifully tragic song that pays tribute to embracing fleeting moments of joy even in the most hopeless situations.
