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.”
