NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Big Loud’s Country songstress Ashley Cooke “stakes out her own artistic turf” (Billboard) at Country radio as her single “your place” storms into the Top 20 after just 10 weeks on the chart, marking a first for Cooke. As the standout track from her critically acclaimed debut album, shot in the dark, “your place” continues to soar Cooke to new heights, she releases an all-new performance video, dubbed ‘Diner Sessions,’ for the “feel good, I don’t need you anthem” (Holler). The new video comes as “your place” dominates the charts as the Top 10 most added song on Country radio – including a No. 1 most-added – for seven consecutive weeks. The song also continues on its 10 week uptrend in Shazams with nearly 20K US tags this week alone and over 28M streams on the single to date.

Released today, Cooke performs a stripped-down, acoustic version of the emotionally charged breakup track at Nashville’s Wendell Smith’s Restaurant. Directed by Justin Clough, the video serves as the first of six ‘Diner Sessions’ to come as she revitalizes some of her debut album’s biggest hits. The performance video follows the release of the official music video that highlighted Cooke’s autobiographical journey of moving forward and reclaiming her independence after a toxic breakup. As her intrusive ex persistently crosses boundaries that no longer concern him, Cooke draws a firm line – “her current situation is none of his damn bizness” (MusicRow).

The song co-written by Cooke, Jordan Minton and Mark Trussell has rapidly climbed the charts at Country radio since its December 11 impact date. As it steadily makes its climb, Billboard recognizes its “real potential at becoming her first radio hit,” re-affirming her status as a coveted iHeartCountry On The Verge artist. After first appearing on her July 2023 debut album, “your place” has already reached No.1 on SiriusXM’s The Highway Hot 30 Countdown as she averages over 1M+ on-demand streams per week, placing her in the Top 10 for female Country currents in streaming.

With momentum building like never before, the MusicRow Discovery Artist of the Year and Next Big Thing continues to share her critically acclaimed debut album with fans across the globe, most recently, wrapping a the European leg of Jordan Davis’ DAMN GOOD TIME Tour before it treks across the US, Canada and Europe. She’s also recently added more dates to her headlining shot in the dark Tour next month, stopping in Greensboro, N.C., Augusta, Ga., and Isle of Palms, S.C..
