Up and coming artist, Hunter Phelps has penned hits for artists like Florida Georgia Line’s with “Talk You Out Of It” and I Don’t Know About You,” recorded by Chris Lane. Although he has definitely honed his songwriting skills, Phelps is a passionate artist in his own right. His newest song, “Take Me to Heaven,” which premiered on Friday (10/18) showcases his talents as both a singer and as a songwriter.
The new jam follows his summer hit, “You Don’t Want Me.” Co-written with tour mate, HARDY and Ben Johnson, Phelps sings about being a lost soul that finally found nirvana in a woman. The rising artist usually records songs about heartbreak and breaking up, so it is a nice change to see his more romantic and vulnerable side. There’s something enticing and evocative about a song that stems from a personal place like in “Take Me to Heaven.” The singer does not shy away from alluring lyrics or expressing intimacy in a song.
“I was just a lost soul / Couldn’t find solid ground / Burning up a broken road / No signs of slowing down / I heard angels were here and now I know / Because I saw you and saw streets of gold / Now you’re looking at me like you want to / I know you know the way, so won’t you / Take me to Heaven”
We expect to hear more from Phelps going forward, so country music fans should keep their eye peeled for more from the singer. We recently caught his opening gig at HARDY’s show this weekend, where the two even sang their song “My Kinda Livin’” together to a sold-out crowd. You can check out more awesome moments from the show here.
