It’s official – Gabby Barrett is sending “Pick Me Up” to country radio.
The backroad ballad effortlessly paints the picture of a day that can only be fixed with a late-night drive with the person you love.
“You and Jesus can fix my soul,” she sings, “So pick me up, get me lost way out / Down a back two-lane / Little George Strait way on up / Get me outta my head and outta this town / And tell me no matter what / You’ll be by my side / Everything gonna be alright / Make the world go black, how you do me like that / When I climb up in your truck / Just pick me up.”
Barrett was excited to share “Pick Me Up” with fans as it’s a bit different than anything she’s previously released.
“I wrote ‘Pick Me Up’ with Ross [Copperman] and Jon [Nite]. I didn’t really have a song in my repertoire that was laid-back Country – a riding down the backroads while listening to George Strait-type of song,” the multi-platinum star shared. “I had to pay homage to George Strait because I feel like I’m being adopted into the Texas family with my husband being from Texas.”
The track appears on Barrett’s recently released project, “GOLDMINE (DELUXE),” the extended version of her highly praised GOLD-selling debut album.
The expanded release also includes thee additional new tracks: “Never Get It Back,” a breathtaking cover of country icon Dolly Parton’s “I Will Always Love You” and “The Good Ones (Wedding Version).”
“Pick Me Up” officially goes for adds at country radio on February 7, 2022.
