Kelsy Karter – “God Knows I’ve Tried”
“She’s a little rebel that’s what they said. ‘Cause I been chasing trouble since back in the day. I don’t wanna grow up, I’m just not built that way. Daddy wishes I was the girl next door. Mama tells me I should smile some more. Baby, I’ve been bad, but God knows I’ve tried to be good.” – lyrics
‘God Knows I’ve Tried’ tells the tale of a rebellious and nomadic-spirited woman who’s been living a hazardous life. From the outside, she doesn’t care about anyone but herself. Also, she does what she wants, even though her misguided actions might not coincide with her friends and loved ones.
But deep down within her soul, she cares but has a poor way of showing it. One day, she comes to the realization that, in the eyes of others, she hasn’t been the best version of herself. What she has done terrifies her just by saying it. Now she’s faced with a hard decision to make. Be good 😇 like how people want her to be or continue being her “bad” 😈 self.
‘God Knows I’ve Tried’ contains an engaging and evergreen storyline, gorgeous soul vocals, and strumming guitar instrumentation oozing with pop, rock, and gospel elements.
“I’ve spent my whole life being rebellious and doing what people told me not to do. And when you have that kind of spirit, somebody always gets hurt. I guess ‘God Knows I’ve Tried’ is just my apology letter in the form of a rock ‘n’ roll ballad.” – K 🚀
Kelsy Karter influences include Queen, The Beatles, and The Rolling Stones. Also, her exclusive sound takes listeners on a musical journey from classic rock ‘n’ roll to modern rock. Everything in between is her gift to the world.
“This song is for all the kids that aren’t perfect. The ones that go left when everyone else goes ‘right’. The ones that are only truly themselves when face to face with trouble. We are the kids with a deep desire to be bold and ridiculous most all of the time. And whether authority wants to believe it or not, we are the ones that make up all of your heroes. I have tried to meet the standards of what others call ‘good’ or even ‘normal’. But I can’t keep up and I’m done pretending that I can. Evidence shows that maybe it’s just not my path. I’ve broken most rules and paid dearly for it. But doing bad things doesn’t make you a bad person. It makes you an interesting one.” – k 🚀
