‘This Is Us’ star, Chrissy Metz delivers an uplifting message with healing vocals in her brand new song, “Girl Go”, available now, April 2nd. Take a look below as we dig a little deeper into the track.
Chrissy Metz, well-known for her acting role as Kate Pearson in the TV series This Is Us, has also been a growing name on the country music scene over the last few years. She performed on both the ACM and CMT stages in 2019. The ACM Awards marked her debut live television performance, where she joined several female artists on stage to perform “Standing With You” from the movie Breakthrough (in which she also starred in), including Mickey Guyton, Lauren Alaina, Carrie Underwood, and Maddie and Tae.
A few months later, Metz performed Luke Comb’s “Even Though I’m Leaving” at the CMT Awards in honor of his New Artist of the Year Award. With a growing fan base upon her entrance into Country Music, Metz released her debut single “Talking to God” in April 2020 and followed with “Actress” and “Feel Good” shortly thereafter.
“Girl Go” is all about having the courage to not only chase your dreams but also the humility to not forget who you are or where you came from. From the start of the song, it gives a very Faith Hill vibe, and as it goes on, it even shares a very similar message to “Mississippi Girl”.
“Girl Go” is about a girl that once was struggling day to day doing the jobs she never thought she’d have to settle for and goes on to live her wildest dreams. Metz touches on the hate and judgment from others that are constantly surrounding people as they try to make it in this world, saying that you may never get used to it, but it’ll never stop, it’s just the way it goes. This song stands as a message to not worry about others and all the reasons not to, and acts as the push one needs to follow their own heart.
“At the end of the day, just needed someone to say // Girl go, dream on down that road // Roll down that window and let that freedom in // Let your hand that’s in the wind, girl go // You can always come back home // You might see your name in shining lights all around the world // But don’t you ever let that girl go”
