RaeLynn is serving up new music on Friday, May 13, and fans are getting a double helping. The country singer has released two new tracks, “I Love My Hometown” and “If God Took Days Off.”
The first is an anthem for RaeLynn’s hometown of Baytown, Texas, and while it’s a personal song for her, it appeals to anyone who takes pride in their upbringing. The 28-year-old certainly hasn’t forgotten where she comes from.
“You don’t get that in the city / Like you do in the sticks / You can’t get that kind of pretty / ‘Bout as real as real can get / ‘Cause we put the good in the right people / We put a ringtone on the one we love / Always the country playing through the speakers / all the roads all full of trucks / I love my hometown / I keep it in my hometown / my hometown, I maintain in my hometown” she sings in the chorus.
The second song is a sweet melody about how one experiences God’s love through another person. It’s hard not to think that RaeLynn wrote the song about her husband of six years, Josh Davis. The two share a daughter, Daisy, who was born on September 8, 2021.
“If God took days off, I’d be lost but not in your eyes / This kiss wouldn’t get me high / I never would’ve found heaven tonight“, sings RaeLynn.
the old the Voice The contestant first sparked fan interest in the new tracks on social media. She’s never been afraid to put Jesus in her lyrics or give a nod to the city that built her, so it’s no surprise she’s back with more of the same.
“ARE YOU READY FOR TWO NEW SONGS? This Friday! Because your daughter hasn’t finished singing about hometowns and Jesus,” she teased on social media.
Shortly after the birth of her daughter, RaeLynn released her latest album, Baytown, on September 24, 2021. This is her first project after signing with Florida Georgia Line’s Round Here Records in 2019. She released the song “Bra Off” to announce her new contract.
