Country Songs and Collaborations Written by Sasha Alex Sloan

Sasha Alex Sloan grew up right outside of Boston where she discovered her talent in music. At 19, she packed her bags and moved across the country to Los Angeles where she made ends meet working at a coffee shop. The Massachusetts-born songstress predominately crafts elephantine-pop arrangements but has dabbled in country music since being in Nashville. Here are a few country songs that you didn’t know that Sasha Alex Sloan had a part in writing. 1. “When Was It Over” featuring Sam Hunt

“When Was It Over,” penned by Sloan, Hunt, and Shane McAnally, has a couple wondering what it was that really led to their breakup and when. It’s potent with vulnerability and electronic-dance tastings as Sloan carries the first verse while Hunt takes over the second. Was it the first time he saw her get drunk? Differences among friends? Was it when they ran into exes? Her fights with her mother? “When was it over for you? / When was it over? / When was the moment you knew / That you were gonna walk out eventually? / It's still not over for me / It's still not over for me / When I didn't ask if you were okay after a fight with your mom / And last time I stayed over at your place and you woke up alone / Was it the first time you pulled away? / Second time that we drove to Texas / Third time we ran into one of my random exes / So, was it ever real or was it all pretend? / The way you're acting's got me wonderin.'”

2. “On Top Of The World” by Lauren Alaina

Singer-songwriter Lauren Alaina recently dropped her album Sitting Pretty On Top Of The World which hosts the song “On Top Of The World.” Alaina wrote the song alongside Sloan and Jordan Reynolds about her struggle with happiness and the fight to make it understood that it’s okay to not be okay. The mid-tempo composition encompasses an arrangement of perky acoustic and linear electric while Alaina’s vocals gloss the top.

3. “Your Drinkin,’ My Problem” by Carly Pearce
