Chrissy Metz recently released a brand-new song “Talking To God,” an introspective tune from her upcoming debut album on EMI Records Nashville.

She signed with the label after releasing “I’m Standing With You,” the Diane Warren-penned Oscar-nominated song from the Breakthrough soundtrack and debuted it on last year’s ACM Awards, as well as this year’s Academy Awards.

The Florida native has always been drawn to Country Music. “Country Music for me has always been about the values of what the storytelling really is about, and it always really spoke to my soul and my spirit and my heart,” says Chrissy. “You can cry to it, you can dance to it, you can have the best road trips to it. I just love me some Country Music. The artists that I really admire are beautiful storytellers that really speak from the heart and they just sing and tell stories about real life in their most authentic self.”

Metz, who has also showcased her vocal abilities as “Kate Pearson” on NBC’s award-winning series This Is Us, calls music her “first love” and is currently hosting a daily Facebook livestream, The Dreamers where she shares her musical journey.
