The latest release from Canadian country pop princess, Teigen Gayse, showcases the undeniable talent that landed her in a writers room with music legend, Chad Kroeger, lead singer of Nickelback.
“I wrote this song with Chad Kroeger and Simon Clow, and it’s one of my favourites to date,” Teigen shares. “It was so fun to create this song with them and bring out this level of vulnerability. After we finished writing, Chad and Chris Baseford ended up producing it. They are both so talented and it’s honestly one of the best experiences I’ve ever had. I hope you love the song as much as I do!”
On “If You Show Me Yours”, Teigen digs deep to connect with her own heartbreak on a track oozing with emotion around the fears of love and loss. The song lyrically and musically captures the raw struggle between the desire for true love and the risks that inevitably come when you gamble with your heart.
The song explores these themes through its title and lyrics that describe love as a card game. This motif, combined with smooth top-notch production, manages to create a sentimental country ballad with its own distinct groove.
The star of the song is, of course, Teigen. Her powerful vocal vibrato, expansive range, and the subtly raspy twang of her voice ground the song’s gritty truth.
