AM/FM Country Chart-Topper Ashley Puckett Releases First Self-Penned Single

The Pittsburgh-based artist will release “Tequila” on October 28th, 2022. She co-wrote the song with Andrew Douglas and Nathan Beatty.

Since the release of her 2020 debut album, “Never Say Never,” Pittsburgh’s Ashley Puckett has enjoyed enormous success, spring-boarding her onto the international country music radar.  Her album has racked up an incredible 450K+ Spotify streams.  Her single, “Bulletproof” reached #1 on the New Music Weekly AM/FM radio chart, also reaching #1 on the international iTunes sales charts.  Two more singles also reached the Top 10 radio and sales charts, while ushering in a 2022 International Singer Songwriter Association (ISSA) Award for US Female Emerging Artist.

Now, Ashley Puckett is looking to take her music career to the next level, by releasing her first co-written single, “Tequila.” The song, written by Puckett with Andrew Douglas and producer, Nathan Beatty, drops on October 28th, 2022 on MTS Records.  Like her album, the track was recorded at Tonic Studios in Pittsburgh.

“This song was written from a place of almost desperation for answers and just wanting to throw in the towel to love,” Ashley said. “Personally, I’ve had my share of times where I wanted to walk into a little bar where people knew me – or didn’t, as long as I wasn’t some center of attention to just sit alone and drink. ‘Tequila’ is a traditional country song where a girl has a conversation with, well, tequila. It starts with thinking too much, and as the night unfolds, the liquor does what it does.”

A music video is also in the works.
