Penned by Rose alongside long-time friends Stephen Carey, Ian Christian and “Villain” producer Matt Morrissey, “Truth Is” tells the tale of denial over a past relationship as liquor proves to be an easier pill to swallow than accepting the harsh reality of a failed relationship.
“I could say I’m sober/ Like I can’t see right through the bottom of this black label bottle/ Say I’m moving forward/ Like your tail lights fadin’ out/ Like I ain’t thinkin ’bout you right now/ I could say I’m all good/ That it don’t hurt/ But if you’re takin’ me at my word,” sings Rose before belting out the chorus with lyrics, “Truth is I’d be lyin’/ I ain’t tryin’ to get over you/ Truth is I should want somebody new/ But I don’t want to/ ‘Cause the minute I move on’s the minute you’re gone/ So I’ll keep hanging on a little too long/ ‘Cause chasin’ down what we were/ With this hundred proof is/ Easier to swallow than the truth is, truth is.”
“We’ve all been in a place where you believe you are over someone or something, but you realize you’re lying to yourself. I hope fans feel like their experience that they’ve once felt, or are currently feeling, is explained in the three minutes of ‘Truth Is,’” shared Rose. “I wrote this song with three of my favorite people, and being able to close out the year by celebrating my friends is a huge blessing.”
Rose started the year off strong with a massive win for “Outstanding Breakthrough Music Artist” at the 2022 GLAAD Awards, making the singer the first country artist to accept this honor. Rose went on to be nominated for the ACM Awards’ Best New Female artist and tour with hitmakers including Sam Hunt, Chris Lane and Dylan Scott.
