Country music's favorite sister duo, Tigirlily Gold, has rung in the new year with a new heartbreak ballad. Titled 'I Tried A Ring On', the gut wrenching tune chronicles one of the sister's real-life heartbreak.
Bringing listeners into the sobering aftermath of a relationship's end, its poignant lyrics reveal that the female narrator was so confident that they were going to last that she had already begun trying on wedding rings.
As the song progresses, the listener is taken through the flashes of a future life and coveted wedding day that she envisioned for the couple, including the dress, the venue and the song they'd have taken their first dance to.
Rather than focusing on moving on to the next fling, as most songs tend to do, 'I Tried A Ring On' finds the narrator stuck in the paralyzing pain of losing the person you thought you'd spend forever with.
“We were noticing how many of the breakup songs in country music talk about how hard it is to get over someone, but another extremely hard part of heartbreak that not a lot of people talk about is the gut wrenching feeling of having to start over again when you truly thought you had forever with someone,” Tigirlily Gold shares.
“‘I Tried A Ring On’ tells that side of the story, and we are excited for people to discover this whole other side of who we are as writers and as artists.”
This new track, written by sisters Kendra and Krista Slaubaugh, along with Josh Jenkins and Pete Good, unveils a new side of the golden-haired pair.
Up until this point, Tigirlily Gold have built their young and mighty career on high-energy, empowering anthems like their major label debut single, 'Shoot Tequila.' It cracked the Top 40 last summer thanks to its intoxicatingly fun and, unfortunately, relatable lyrics, and served as quite the introduction to country radio.
With this newest release ready to impact radio on January 22, the powerhouse duo are gearing up for another big year in 2024 with the promise of new music on the way in the coming months.
