(Nashville, Tenn. – Aug. 31, 2010) Curb Records recording artist Ashley Gearing has released her new single, “What You Think About Us,” to Country radio, debuting this week on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart.
Co-written by Gearing with Brian Davis and Ben Glover, “What You Think About Us” is the first single off the young singer’s much-anticipated debut for Curb Records. Gearing has been working on the upcoming album with renowned music producer Byron Gallimore (Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, Jo Dee Messina) since signing with the label. The as-yet-untitled album is scheduled for release in the coming months.
Respected Nashville music critic Robert K. Oermann praised Gearing’s “What You Think About Us” in Music Row, saying, “This rumbling rocker has enough ‘bottom’ to kick you right out of your seat and send you twirling around the room. It’s a big, big sound, but [Gearing] manages to ride atop the whole thing with plenty of vocal authority. Sing it, sister.”
Since July, the 19-year-old singer-songwriter has been on a multi-leg radio tour in support of the single, visiting nearly 40 stations from coast to coast in just over a month. Gearing has continued to play festivals and concerts during the tour, including an Aug. 20 performance of the national anthem at Boston Red Sox game.
“To say that Chuck and I both were very impressed with this young lady would certainly be an understatement for sure,” said Linda Lee, of Detroit’s 99.5 WYCD duo, Edwards & Lee. “Nineteen-year-old singer/songwriter Ashley Gearing visited us in studio to chat and blew us away with her vocal stylings! We both think she has definite ‘Star Quality,’ and think you will agree!”
At 12 years old, Ashley Gearing became the youngest Country artist ever to appear on Billboard’s Hot Country Singles chart after releasing “Can You Hear Me When I Talk to You.” Since then, Gearing has received ASCAP’s Uncut Diamond Award and has performed numerous times on the Grand Ole Opry.
