Ashley Cooke and Jimmie Allen’s new song “Good Goodbye,” is available now, August 6th, on all streaming platforms. Take a look below as we dig a little deeper into the new song.
Ashley Cooke is becoming a more and more well-known name in country music. A little over a year after going viral on TikTok, the 24-year-old is gaining serious traction in the music industry. With five singles, each one better than the last, and an upcoming album, all released in less than a year, Cooke is keeping busy and gaining more and more fans as she goes.
Ashley Cooke’s latest release “Good Goodbye” features Jimmie Allen and marks the last single to be released ahead of her forthcoming full-length debut album, Already Drank That Beer, due out August 27th. The eight-track project will include previously released tracks like “Sunday Morning Kinda Saturday Night”, “Jealous of the Sky”, “Under” and the title track, as well as four brand new songs.
“Good Goodbye” is a beautiful collaboration that showcases the extraordinary vocals of both Cooke and Allen. Written by Cooke and Blake Pendergrass, tells the story of two people pulling away from a relationship that they know is near the end. It touches on the mixed emotions that are felt while trying to soak up your last moments together, but knowing that it’s already over.
On how this duet came about, Cooke shares, “We originally recorded ‘Good Goodbye’ as an individual song with just my voice on it, but something felt missing to give the song the depth it deserves.” She adds, “I knew Jimmie would be the perfect addition and I’m just honored to get to collaborate with such an unbelievably talented artist. His tone, harmonies, riffs, storytelling, etc. adds so much to the song and I’m so proud to be releasing this with him.”
“If we ain’t gonna make it baby // whatcha say we make it a good, goodbye // love me for the last time // wrap me in your arms, like we never grew apart // come and kiss my lips, take me back to when // you were all my heart was chasing // If we’re gonna say it, make it a good, goodbye”
