Goldmine

Album: The Malibu Sessions (2016)

Songfacts®:

  • Colbie Caillat sings of finding love on this feel good tune. The perky track was originally penned by Taylor Berrett, a writer that Caillat has never met. It was the Malibu native's friend Kara DioGuardi who passed the song to her.

    "Within three minutes of hearing [Berrett's] idea I was singing it on repeat," Caillat told Billboard magazine. "I ran upstairs and played it for Jason Reeves and we instantly started writing to it."

    "We called Kara on Skype so the three of us could write it together," the songstress continued. "She was at her cozy house in Maine and we were at our beach house in California. Within minutes we finished the song and started recording it right away, rearranging our song priority recording list. This happy, warm song is definitely one of the most unique ways I've ever written."
