Ashley Riley released her brand new EP "Can't Let You Go" today (March 3rd) and to celebrate we asked her to tell us the story behind the song "Leaving Nashville". Here is the story:

"Leaving Nashville" was written with a dear friend of mine, Jessica Jolly, back in 2010. We had been in Nashville for a few days visiting and playing shows and doing the writers rounds and were packing up and our bags and heading to Knoxville for a show that night.

I think we had the first verse and most of the chorus completed by the time we hit the road. I remember hammering out the second verse as we drove. We forgot to account for the time difference between Nashville to Knoxville so we were late to our gig, but it was still a fun night.

When we got back to our hotel that night we stayed up and finished writing the song. To be clear though, I have a pretty serious city crush on Nashville and it always feels really great to spend time there. I always come home really inspired and vowing to go back much more often.

Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself here and learn more about the album right here!
