Rising country artist Ashley Cooke has signed a co-venture record deal with Big Loud Records and Back Blocks Music. She will also be represented by Big Loud / Back Blocks Music for publishing.

Cooke made her country music debut with her 2021 project Already Drank That Beer, which has already racked up over 30 million streams in seven months. Since joining TikTok in 2020, Cooke has amassed a following of over 885K followers and nearly 12 million likes. She has repeatedly topped the iTunes country charts with numerous releases such as fan favorite “Good Goodbye” and standout track “Never Til Now.”

“From the second I walked into Big Loud, it felt like home. They met me where I was, recognizing all I had built independently while also showing me how they could pour gasoline on the fire that had already started,” shares Cooke. “Getting to partner with not only Big Loud but also my champion since day one, Rakiyah Marshall / Back Blocks, is an absolute dream team and I couldn’t be more excited and confident to be joining the roster.”

Cooke started 2022 by being named one of Spotify’s Hot Country Artist To Watch. She is currently performing on Cole Swindell’s “Down To The Bar Tour,” and is preparing to release music throughout the year, recently teasing an all-new duet of “Never Til Now” alongside country superstar Brett Young.
