Gearing thinks about new single

Tuesday, August 31, 2010 – 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, the song is the first single off the young singer's debut for Curb Records. Gearing has been working on the upcoming album with music producer Byron Gallimore (Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, Jo Dee Messina) since signing with the label.

There is no release date for the unnamed CD.

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. 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.

At 12 years old, 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.
