Gabrielle Metz is a Nashville-based singer-songwriter and musician from Fort Payne, Alabama. Not too long ago, she released a wonderful cover of Ingrid Andress‘s “More Hearts Than Mine” single.
Gabrielle Metz – “More Hearts Than Mine” (Ingrid Andress cover) studio version
“My sister’s gonna ask a million questions, say anything she can to turn you red. And when you meet my high school friends, they’ll buy you drinks and fill you in on all the crazy nights I can’t outlive. So if I bring you home to mama, I guess I’d better warn ya, she falls in love a little faster than I do. And my dad will check your tires, pour you whiskey over ice and buy you dinner but pretend that he don’t like you.” – lyrics
‘More Hearts Than Mine’ tells a heartfelt tale about an honest young woman who shares a budding relationship with her significant other. Apparently, she discusses a few things with her partner before he meets her family and high school friends for the first time. During their discussion, she tells him, “I can’t wait to show you where I grew up, walk you ’round the foothills of my town. Probably feel like you’ve been there before after hearing all the stories I’ve been telling you.”
“If I bring you home to mama, I guess I’d better warn ya, she feels every heartache I go through. And if my dad sees me crying, he’ll pour some whiskey over ice and tell a lie and say he never really liked you.”
If there was ever a perfect cover song for Gabrielle Metz, this is it. Not only does this song showcase her beautiful range and vocal inflections, but it also conveniently brings to light her attention to the vocal details paired with her ability to transition into character in order to correctly convey the emotional experience of this song.
Metz grabs the listener from her first note and keeps us mesmerized until the final note. Her sometimes gritty vocal combined with her emotional delivery is exceptional. The deliberately honest lyrics are perfectly conveyed with the silvery vocals from Metz. Also, the song contains a beautifully simplistic piano line (Damon Fichter, Nashville, TN, and produced by George Alexander, Nashville, TN).

“Music has a beautiful way of uniting people from all walks of life through shared experiences. That feeling is what made me want to be an artist. My hope is that my music brings people together.” –Gabrielle Metz explained
