Nash Country Daily has learned that Ashley Gearing and Curb Records have parted ways.
Ashley made an immediate impact on country music in 2003 when, as a 12 year old, she became the youngest female artist to enter the country charts with “Can You Hear Me When I Talk to You.” The song eventually peaked at No. 36.
“I am grateful to have worked with the Curb organization for the past nine years but I have decided to explore new opportunities that will enhance my musical journey at this time,” Ashley said in a statement provided to Nash Country Daily. “I would like to thank all of the people who I have worked with at Curb for their love, commitment and all they have done to assist me during my time there. Each of them has a very special place in my heart . . . really looking forward to exploring new partnerships for my next adventure.”
Ashley’s most recent single, “Love Can Go to Hell,” a Brandy Clark penned tune, was part of a six-song self-titled EP she released in 2015. “It was a Brandy Clark [and Scott Stepakoff co-written] song, she had recorded the demo, and it was just a really simple, powerful song and lyric,” the Massachusetts native told Nash Country Weekly earlier this year. “The title is such a strong statement, but when you listen to it there’s such a cool twist to the lyrics.”
Ashley, now 25, will continue her songwriting as she pursues new opportunities.
Nash Country Daily wishes Ashley the best as she looks toward a bright future.
