Songwriters in Nashville usually write songs for other artists.
That’s not usually the case when one of the songwriters is Carrie Underwood. You would think she would save the good ones for herself. But I guess when you’re writing so many great songs you need to give a few away.
That’s what happened with this new song. It’s good fortune for Rachel Holder.
Lord Help Me – Rachel Holder
Now that you know Carrie was one of the writers on this song you know you’re going to get some attitude.
Rachel more than holds her own on this song. You can picture Carrie singing it well, but Rachel makes this her own. She sounds like the wave of new country female singers out there right now, but she has a new sound as well. It’s got some edge. It has some humbleness. It’s just a good voice paired with a great song.
It’s about a girl that’s kind of struggling to find her way in life. It could be in love and all the struggles that go along with it or it could be about anything in life. There are so many pitfalls in life. We all go through it.
Sometimes we just throw our hands up and wish we had some help.
What do you think of Rachel Holder and her new song?
