Multi-Platinum superstar Gabby Barrett gives fans a taste of something different in her newest laid-back track “Pick Me Up.”

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.”

“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,” Barrett 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.”

Listeners can look forward to hearing “Pick Me Up” alongside Barrett’s three other new releases, “Never Get It Back,” a breathtaking cover of country icon Dolly Parton’s “I Will Always Love You” and “The Good Ones (Wedding Version),” when the deluxe project drops on Friday, November 19.
