Actor and rising country star Jet Jurgensmeyer has released a new single, premiering exclusively with Holler. Listen to 'Compassion' below.
In 'Compassion', the 16-year-old singer questions why some people act unkindly to others when "in the end it all comes back around".
The contemporary country track begins with a sentimental piano that underscores Jurgensmeyer's earnest voice. "The grass is greener on the other side / We only wanna see the dirt / We don't know where to draw the line / You'd think by now we woulda learned", he sings.
On the chorus, Jurgensmeyer encourages a different behavior — one that promotes unity.
The song was co-written by Sky Corbin and Stefanie Joyce. “I really love what we were able to say with the lyrics in 'Compassion'", said Jurgensmeyer. "We wanted to give people something positive to think about, with all of the negative things out there in the world right now. I think it would do all of us some good sometimes to take a step back and look at things from another perspective".
After releasing his self-titled debut in 2019, Jurgensmeyer has been hard at work on a new set of songs, many of which he's helped craft. He previously released the single 'Fast Forward' earlier this year.
Jurgensmeyer was born in Nashville. Beyond singing, he's appeared in numerous film and television projects, including the series Last Man Standing. Jurgensmeyer is also voicing one of the characters in the forthcoming Disney film TOTS.
