The country music genre has a way of capturing the hearts of everyday people who are going through real-life situations.
And, RaeLynn’s “Love Triangle” is a song that does just that.
Like all great country songs, the emotional track can resonate with a lot of people for different reasons. However, the 22-year-old singer co-wrote the track following her painful childhood struggle of living with her parents’ divorce.
In a recent unplugged performance, as part of the Grand Ole Opry’s “Live From the Lounge” series, RaeLynn sings the chill-inducing ballad told from the perspective of an adolescent.
Dressed in all white, the porcelain-faced beauty assumes a spot in between an acoustic guitar player and a percussionist. She then revisits her past of being caught in the throes of her mom and dad’s separation by unraveling the words of the song with a true sense of passion and vulnerability.
RaeLynn, who first gained fame as a contestant on the second season of “The Voice,” co-wrote “Love Triangle” with songwriters Nicolle Galyon and Jimmy Robbins. The personal track appears on her 2017 debut album, “WildHorse.”
