Releases Single “Cookies and Cream” to Country Radio
as Davy Crockett Introduces New Flavor of Whiskey
Veronica Ballestrini recently visited Davy Crockett’s distillery, located in Gatlinburg, Tenn. Ballestrini and Matt Lane, a representative of Davy Crockett’s distillery, gathered together for a photo during her first visit as brand ambassador for Davy Crockett’s Cookies & Cream Whiskey.
“I’m so thrilled to be entering into this partnership with Davy Crockett’s distillery,” said Ballestrini. “I not only have a single that I’m proud to be delivering to my friends at radio, but I also have some great whiskey that I’m packin’. My friends at radio better watch out – they haven’t tasted any whiskey like this!”
Chuck Edwards of Davy Crockett’s Whiskey added, “Davy Crockett’s Cookies and Cream Whiskey is proud to be partnering with Veronica. Her strong social media presence and her ability to connect with her fans, along with the release of her single 'Cookies and Cream,' made a partnership with her just seem natural."
Ballestrini released her sophomore album, Flip Side on June 17th and it is available through iTunes and other major digital retailers. Ballestrini co-wrote all eleven tracks on the album and is the writer of her current single “Cookies and Cream.” Destiny Nashville’s Brandon Metcalf produced the album.
The catchy, upbeat track, “Cookies and Cream” showcases her growth as a more mature singer and seasoned songwriter. This high-spirited anthem is reminiscent of the “can’t eat, can’t sleep” feeling of falling in love and being in a “love spell” where life seems to only be filled with love, laughter and magic.

The Waterford, Conn. native first saw success at the age of 17 when she caught the attention of New York Times journalist, Jon Caramanica for her YouTube and social media success. Caramancia wrote an article about the still undiscovered talent who boasted undeniable success on social media, writing:
“… When someone like Ms. Ballestrini arrives essentially unannounced and begins to attract attention, it’s signiﬁcant.”
Ballestrini’s debut single, “Amazing,” scored the talent a Top 30 on the Music Row Country Breakout Chart, with the video debuting at #3 on CMT Pure. Following the debut, leading pop culture magazine, Marie Clare featured Ballestrini as their “Artist To Watch For.” She then set out for her Gotta Make A Change Tour, which took Ballestrini all over the country to perform at various camps, festivals, Girl Scouts of America events and women’s correctional facilities in order to spread the project’s motivational message to women of all ages and backgrounds.
In April 2013, the talent was chosen by Ford Motor Company to be an agent for the Ford Fiesta Movement as part of a promotion with Ford and YouTube. She and Rock band Secondhand Serenade created a music video for their track “La La Love,” which was featured in Ford’s advertising of the Ford Fiesta. Additionally, she spent much of 2013 on tour with Secondhand Serenade, Alex Goot and The Voice’s Juliette Simms, and is currently gearing up for a 2014 US and Asian tour with Secondhand Serenade.
