Catherine McGrath Releases New Song ‘Lost In The Middle’

After joining forces with American country star Hunter Hayes on her previous track ‘Don’t Let Me Forget’ – her 11th consecutive track to be added to Spotify’s New Music Friday – Catherine McGrath continues to go from strength-to-strength. In addition to accumulating 12 million streams, her headline shows continue to sell-out quickly and grow in capacity, while other high profile dates have included Radio 2’s Biggest Weekend and continue with a huge British Summer Time show with Michael Bublé.

It’s no wonder that many are heralding the 21-year-old Catherine McGrath as the UK’s answer to Taylor Swift and our first domestic breakthrough country star. The genre is bigger than ever before, as evidenced by huge collabs from Justin Timberlake and Chris Stapleton, and Bebe Rexha and Florida Georgia Line

Now Catherine shares her new single ‘Lost In The Middle’ ahead of the July 27th release of her debut album ‘Talk Of This Town’. It’s a track which exudes the young songwriter’s pure passion for country, while the energy of the hook gives it an immediately captivating feel. Catherine’s universally relatable lyrics explore music’s power of escapism as she sings, “I put my headphones on, turn the real world off / And I get lost in the middle of a country song.”

“I really wanted to write a song that expresses how country makes me feel,” says Catherine. “Country music is especially good at telling stories, so when you’re having a bad day you can turn to music to take you somewhere else.”

‘Lost In The Middle’ was produced by Steve Robson – an Englishman who became a force within the country scene after co-writing Rascal Flatts’ smash hit ‘What Hurts The Most’ – and was written by Catherine with Robson, Lindy Robbins (Dua Lipa) and Jeffrey Steele (Rascal Flatts).

Catherine’s debut album ‘Talk Of This Town’ was recorded at various locations in Nashville and London, and affirms her credentials as an artist and songwriter to be reckoned with.
