Good As Gold

Album: Single release only (2018)

Songfacts®:

  • In this song of encouragement, Greyson Chance is telling himself that he's "good as gold":

    When you're tied up
    By the past you hold
    You got to know
    That you are good as gold


    "'Good As Gold' is very, very close to me," he said. "'You can do this.' It's about a lot of things but mainly it symbolizes how I've grown and how far I've come."
  • Chance was just 20 years old when he released this song, but already an 8-year veteran of the music industry. He became a YouTube star in 2010 when he was 12, and appeared that year on The Ellen DeGeneres Show; the host became his mentor and label boss. "Good As Gold" he wrote while a student at the University of Tulsa, drawing inspiration from the challenges he faced after finding fame at such a young age.
