For her recent single, Halle Kearns, provides us with feel good country hit that is sure to last throughout the ages. Her debut song “Pick Me Up” is upbeat and reminiscent of something I would love to listen to on a summer drive with my best friends.

The chorus says, “I just need a little pick me up, pick me up…” As she describes how she would love to be picked up for a night of fun with her significant other.
In a recent interview with Live and Amplified, Halle explains to the host, Tom, that she feels her song is hitting the heart in a different way. Especially now, as we have all been wanting to get together and see friends. That’s why she chose this as her first release.

The singer explains that she wanted to provide a way for us all to feel better, because her song is a ‘pick me up’.
In her interview, the extrovert also shares that a big influence of her’s right now is Kacey Musgraves.
