(Nashville, Tenn. – March 21, 2011) Curb Records recording artist Ashley Gearing has released her sophomore single to Country radio, a stirring and emotionally-charged new ballad titled “Five More Minutes.”
Gearing co-wrote “Five More Minutes” with Tiffany Goss and Nicole Witt, which was produced by renowned industry veteran Byron Gallimore (Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, Sugarland). Gearing has been working with Gallimore on her debut album for Curb Records, due out later this year.
“Ashley continues to mature every time we go into the studio together,” said Byron Gallimore. “’Five More Minutes’ is just another step in her evolution as a country superstar and I am thrilled to be associated with her as both a performer and a songwriter.”
The beautifully written “Five More Minutes” showcases Gearing’s soaring vocals and delivers a poignant message about the speed at which life can pass. Gearing co-wrote the song with Goss and Witt during their first-ever writing session, when Ashley was still a high school student in Massachusetts.
"We wrote this song a little over three years ago and it still holds just as much meaning to me today as it did when we first wrote it. The message of the song is about the special moments in life that one should cherish because you can’t always have five more minutes,” said Gearing. “As I’ve gotten older and have become busier with my music career and everyday life, the song has taken on an even stronger meaning. I am so excited to be able to share this song with my fans and with country radio."
“Five More Minutes” follows Gearing’s 2010 debut single, “What You Think About Us.” The 19-year-old singer splits her time between furthering her education at Belmont University in Nashville and on the road touring to promote her music
