Kameron Marlowe has unveiled a new song titled, “Take Me Home,” which he revealed was written during a dark time in his life. 

The country star made several posts on social media prefacing that the emotions he depicts in the song are no longer what he feels in the current stage of his career. He first shared a message through a clip that gives a bit more context to where the honest tune stems from.

To sum up the video, he shared a few key points that read, “I’m not mad at anyone. I love my nashville fam. just had to get some things off my chest. Take me home comes out tonight at midnight.”

Marlowe also explained that “Take Me Home” may sound a bit different from his usual releases because it was recorded the moment it was written. 

“It was recorded straight off my phone the minute that I wrote it on my guitar,” he said. “So that’s why it’s gonna sound not polished like it was in the studio, but I didn’t feel like I could capture the real emotion behind it if I didn’t do it that way.”

In another post, the “Steady Heart” singer took the listener back to the moment that sparked this downward spiral and expanded on the weight he felt on his shoulders after receiving some upsetting news.

“What you’re hearing is a song I wrote in 30 mins at my house in Nashville after getting a call that just left me feeling empty inside I never thought I’d release this let alone the day of recording I did on my phone. this business is hard and there are so many highs and lows a ton of comparison on not feeling like you’re doing enough fast enough. it’s like with any job you think you know what you’re getting into you have this fabricated image in your head but once you’re in it it’s not what you thought.”

He continued, “I feel like so many can relate because how many times have you just wanted to give up and go home but you don’t. You keep fighting because you know deep down it’s what you’re meant to do.”

Despite all the highs and lows, Marlowe has gained a strong support system to help pull him out of those tough moments. The raw experience that unfolds within the depts of this song emphasizes just how easy it is to hide how true feelings behind a big smile and an energetic stage presence.

“My team has been with me through it all and the Nashville community is truly special and I’m grateful for those who have supported me since the beginning and really I wouldn’t be here without all my fans. I’m good now but damn what a ride it’s been here’s to being vulnerable and hopefully one of y’all can relate to this in one way or another,” he said in conclusion. 

With every strum of his acoustic guitar, Marlowe breaths a deeper portrayal of his journey that has led him to become the country star he is today.  His elevated vocals pairs with the incredibly honest tune, which draws the listener in and holds them until the very last note.

Since getting his start on season 15 of The Voice, the North Carolina native quickly caught the attention of fans with his popular tracks “Steady Heart,” which remains his quickest-growing song to date, as well as his Gold-certified single, “Giving You Up,” which hit No. 1 on SiriusXM The Highway’s Weekend Hot 30 and continues to climb the charts at radio.

In 2022, he reached beyond his expectations and stepped into a new chapter of his career. Marlowe released his debut record, We Were Cowboys, and embarked on his headlining tour in support of the project.

This year, Kameron Marlowe has his sights set on crossing even more goals off his bucket list. He kicked off 2023 on the road with Thomas Rhett on the Canadian leg of his Bring The Bar To You Tour, which will come to an end on February 25 in Ottawa, ON.  

Next, he will play a few dates in support of Chase Rice’s recently announced Way Down Yonder Tour. This trek is slated to launch on on March 3 in Laughlin, NV. and run for 23 dates across the U.S.
