Get to Me

  • This song was penned by LA's Hillary Scott and James T. Slater back in 2010 and submitted for the band to record. It turned out to be the perfect track to lead off Golden. "It's definitely a place where I've been in my life where you're just really missing the person you love," Hillary Scott told USA Today. "Some of my biggest influences as a female vocalist are Bonnie Raitt and Trisha Yearwood, and I truly listened to this song and thought, 'How would Trisha Yearwood sing this song?' And I really put myself in the song. I wanted to get that emotion out because it is such a relatable subject matter."
  • The song finds Hillary stepping outside the box when it came to her vocals. According to her LA bandmate Dave Haywood, being pregnant while recording the album helped Hillary deliver some of her best vocals yet. "I personally thought Hillary sang the best she's ever sang on this record," he told GAC. "There's a lot more charisma, and I think there's a lot of excitement. Being pregnant has given her this new found excitement and empowerment knowing that she's bringing a new child into this world very soon."
