Brantley Gilbert Recruits Ashley Cooke For 'Over When We're Sober'

(EBM) Known for his ability to capture gritty realism and the raw emotions of love and heartbreak, Brantley Gilbert's knack for crafting poignant ballads shines on new single "Over When We're Sober," a powerful duet with ACM New Female Artist of the Year nominee Ashley Cooke, available now via The Valory Music Co.

"From the moment we started writing, I knew this song was something special," reflects Gilbert. "We knew we wanted another voice on it, and my producer Brock Berryhill suggested Ashley. I love her voice, and I knew she would take it to the next level. I'm grateful to have someone as talented and dedicated as her join me on this song."

"When Brantley called me about this song, I listened to the demo and it was an immediate yes," shares Cooke. "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. It's such an honor to get to be on a song with someone I've admired for so long. Not to mention, one of the realest, funniest, most talented guys I've met on this journey so far. So thankful BG wanted me on this one!"

Written by Gilbert with Jason DeFord (Jelly Roll), Brock Berryhill and Justin Wilson, Gilbert and Cooke bring a dynamic blend of passion and regret to "Over When We're Sober," underlining the complexities of yearning:

It's only over when we're sober
We don't believe it when we say goodbye
We always say we want some closure
Last night was just another last time
Rewind to I hate you and you hate me
'Til three shots of that whiskey
Turns into I miss you and you miss me
They say it's over when it's over
But they don't know us
It's only over when we're sober

Along with today's release of "Over When We're Sober," Gilbert is celebrating two new RIAA Certifications from his Platinum-certified album Halfway to Heaven, as "My Kind Of Crazy" reaches Platinum-certification, while "Fall Into Me" is now Gold-certified.
