‘This Is Us’ Star Chrissy Metz Debuts Debut Single “Talking To God”

Chrissy Metz

‘This Is Us’ and ‘Breakthrough’ actress Chrissy Metz is a woman of many talents. From being a Hollywood star to penning her memoir “This Is Me,” and dabbling in singing on last year’s ‘Breakthrough’ movie soundtrack (which also led to a performance at the ACM Awards last year), Metz has done it all. And right now, singing is no longer just a mere dabble. Metz has just dropped her first country release “Talking To God” via EMI Nashville/UMG.

The song, co-penned by Ashley McBryde, narrates the questions an individual asks God in prayer after a break-up and how some potential truths are revealed.

“I was talkin’ to God last night / About why things happen the way they do yeah, and He shed a little light on why I’m goin’ through, what I’m goin’ through / Everything under the sun / Why some get it all / And some people fall out of love / I was talkin’ to God last night / Your name came up, your name came up,”

“‘Talking To God’ is a song about those moments when we ask the questions we desperately want the answers to,” Metz shared in a press statement. “Whether it’s a lost love or why our own lives look much different than the way we had hoped they would. It’s about those personal prayers and conversations we have while listening and learning to surrender and trust in the bigger picture.”
