Chrissy Metz

Award-winning actress Chrissy Metz releases brand new song “Actress” today. “Actress” follows her recent release “Talking to God,” which goes to country radio next month, and both are set to be featured on Metz’s upcoming debut album on EMI Records Nashville.

“I love a good break up song and I love the play on words,” says Metz of the song she penned with Nicolette Hayford, Matt McGinn and Nathan Spicer. “Obviously, I’m an actress, but we have all had those experiences where we put on that brave face when our heart is just broken, we act as if nothing is wrong even though you’re dying inside- wanting something so desperately you don’t have anymore.”

Chrissy Metz (Actress) OC: …bicoastal song. :34
“This one (shew) really gets ya and it gets me every time. It’s one of those songs that I think everybody can relate to ’cause we all know how to put a brave face on. Obviously, it was written about a breakup and heartache, but interestingly enough, we wrote it in my house in L.A. but also in Nashville. So, we didn’t write it all at one time which sometimes doesn’t happen. But yeah, it was cool like a bicoastal song.”
