Brantley Gilbert‘s getting ready for an intoxicating radio romance with Ashley Cooke, one that’ll be “Over When We’re Sober.”

The Georgia native’s new single is a collaboration with the “your place” newcomer, one that he “loved … from the moment we wrote it.”

“When it came time to find a collaborator, my producer Brock Berryhill suggested Ashley,” Brantley recalls. “I was so impressed with her writing and her voice. She’d just released a 24-track album — you don’t see many people doing that these days — and I thought that also speaks to her work ethic.”

It turns out Ashley’s a longtime fan of Brantley’s.

“When Brantley called me about this song, I listened to the demo and it was an immediate ‘yes,’” she says. “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.”

Ashley isn’t the only country star involved in Brantley’s new tune: “Over When We’re Sober” was co-written by Jelly Roll. It arrives Friday.
