Tyler Reese Tritt’s “Texas Hold Him” was written by Jaida Dreyer and Melissa Peirce, and produced by Alex Kline. The song finds the rising artist crooning over the demise of a relationship and hoping for the strength to move on. 

“Texas, hold him and keep him under your sky/ ‘Cause I’m leaving and I’m needing all the help I can get tonight/ If he follows, won’t you slow him down?/ ‘Cause if I see his face I know I’ll turn around/ Don’t you let him go ’til I get to where I’m going/ Texas hold him, yeah,” she sings. 

While she didn’t have a hand in writing the song, Tyler Reese says she connected to it immediately and hopes fans do as well.
