Julie

Album: Expired Love (2014)

Songfacts®:

  • Best known for playing Beth Greene on AMC's The Walking Dead, Emily Kinney is also a singer/songwriter who first gained exposure when she performed "The Parting Glass" on the show with fellow WD actress Lauren Cohen. This is a track from her second EP Expired Love.
  • The song is about a man that Emily wants to be with, but he is already with a girl named Julie. American Songwriter asked her if the guy stayed with Julie, or did he leave her and run away with her? She replied: "I believe he's still with Julie. But I got this song out of the experience, as well as this T-shirt that says 'You + Me – Julie = True Love.' A few times, girls have worn them to my shows, and that makes me so happy. It's a whole campaign."

    "In real life, I'm not still interested in that person," Emily added, "but it's a good story to tell and a good song to sing."
