Ashley Cooke and Brett Young performed, “Never Til Now” on ABC’s ‘The Bachelorette’ on Monday night, July 18th, during one of the special date nights.
On the heels of releasing the new rendition of their romantic love song “Never Til Now,” Ashley Cooke and Brett Young were invited to perform on ABC’s hit show ‘The Bachelorette.” The original version of the track blew up on Cooke’s social media. When Young was later added to the track, it was clear that the song was something special, even marking Cooke’s first song to country radio.
The singer-songwriter teased that she was about to perform on a huge television show. She later shared that it was going to be “awkward.” Although the performance was flawless and romantic, the date between the show’s lead and a contestant did not go according to plan. Bachelorette, Rachel was seen sending one of her suitors home, while the producers edited the performance around those scenes.
What could have been a super awkward performance as the two serenaded Rachel alone with a love song, instead became a powerful and emotional moment of the show. Watch the full performance here. Learn more about Ashley Cooke and her journey to country music in our spotlight interview here.
“I never wanted to tap my brakes // I never wanted to settle down // I was always one foot out the door // I never thought about turning around // I never saw myself with a white picket fence dug into the ground // Never Til Now”
