On Saturday, CMT Hot 20 Countdown debuted Maggie Rose’s latest video for “Pull You Through.” The video shows Maggie and her 11-piece band recording live in just one take, an approach to recording she had never taken before.
American Songwriter calls “Pull You Through” a “soulful showstopper, with a slow-bruning arragement that allows plenty of room for Rose to show off her powerhouse vocals.”
Maggie wrote “Pull You Through”, a soulful ballad, while she was engaged, imagining years into her future…and the implication of the phrase “til death do us part.” “You grow up your whole life knowing that’s part of the wedding ceremony, but to hear it and realize its gravity is overwhelming,” she says.
Shortly after she wrote the song, Maggie‘s grandparents, married for 66 years, died seven weeks apart. “Suddenly, these people who had been together for decades were gone,” she says. “In retrospect, their passing made the song mean that much more to me, as I understand more about what committing your life to someone looks like.”
Maggie released “Pull You Through” on October 20th as part of a Digital 45 along with “Just Getting By.” You can listen and stream here!
