Country newcomer Ashley Cooke turned to music to help her grieve when her best friend Adam lost his battle with cancer. Teaming up with fellow singer/songwriter, Bridgette Tatum, Cooke channeled her emotions into the song “Jealous Of The Sky” and now, the poignant track is resonating with fans far and wide.

Released to streaming services in mid-October, “Jealous Of The Sky” has already raked in 350,000 streams and counting. For Cooke, the response to the song has been overwhelming.

“I wrote this song for my best friend, Adam, but quickly realized just how many people it touched through DMs, texts, FB messages – I mean, it was incredible. And that’s what music is for, right? To hold you, to let you feel, to say the things you can’t sometimes,” the Florida native shared. “Loss is such a universal language, I’m just really lucky to get to communicate so many unbelievable stories through this song and this video.”

Today, Cooke is premiering the “Jealous Of The Sky” lyric video exclusively on Country Now. The clip showcases the song’s meaningful lyrics and also pays tribute to those who are no longer with us with fan-submitted photos of their friends and loved ones.
