NASHVILLE, TN. – (18th September, 2023) – On Friday (15/9), in honour of Suicide Prevention Week last week, rising country sibling trio Track45 offered a hopeful message to young people struggling with mental health with the release of their new song “When I Grow Up”.

The track was written by Track45’s Ben, Jenna and KK Johnson alongside Jonny Price (Tim McGraw, Keith Urban) and Jaida Dreyer (Reba McEntire, Brantley Gilbert). The song is a tribute to those who have lost their life to mental health battles, and a reminder that many people’s struggles go unseen. It’s a message of solidarity for those who feel alone in their trials.
“When I Grow Up is for anyone who feels like they’re alone in what they’re going through” says Track45. “If you’ve ever been in a dark place, or had someone close to you struggle with mental illness, it can feel isolating — especially when you’re young. Hopefully this song will create a space where people can hear their own stories in this song and feel seen”.
The new release follows the band’s Grew Up OnEP, which was released in July and features songs like the “churning, blasting track” (MusicRow) “Drinkin’ And Thinkin’”. Listen to ‘Grew Up On’ here.
The group behind songs recorded by Justin Timberlake, John Legend, Lauren Alaina, Kylie Morgan and more will release more new music in the near future.
Sibling trio Track45 – Jenna, Ben, and KK Johnson from Meridian, MS – have taken family-based, small-town values and made them relevant in a modern world. The trio’s crystalline harmonies and track-charged musicianship sound current yet classic as they draw from their assorted country, rock, R&B, and pop playlists. Each is a gifted songwriter and musician with individual publishing deals and impressive writing credits – including Justin Timberlake, Charlie Puth, Dierks Bentley, Weezer, Lee Brice, HARDY, and Lauren Alaina. Their combined hopes and passion for music can be heard in every note of their dream big sound. After receiving over 1.8 million views on their version of the global hit “Family” that the rising country trio wrote alongside Billy Mann, the band released their rendition of the song, which was originally made famous by David Guetta and Bebe Rexha. Following “Family,” the band reflected on their youth and the traditions that they’ll never outgrow on the 6-track EP Grew Up On (via BBR Music Group / Stoney Creek Records). Featuring previously released title track “Grew Up On” and the band’s cheeky “Last Man In Tennessee”, which “packs a punch like a shot of sawdust and whiskey” (American Songwriter), the EP intertwines the siblings’ blood harmony “perfection” (MusicRow) while telling the nostalgic story of never outgrowing what you “grew up on.” The band’s poignant new suicide awareness anthem “When I Grow Up” is out now.
