We’ve had a whole host of new music this week, but this is definitely a song we don’t want you to miss out on. It’s a collaboration between Catherine McGrath and Hunter Hayes, titled “Don’t Let Me Forget” and it is simply country magic. The single is taken from Catherine McGrath’s debut studio album, titled “Talk Of This Town”. An accompanying music video has been dropped for the song on her official YouTube Channel.
Catherine McGrath has been building her name up for the past couple of years as she’s released two EPs, but this year is definitely her time as she gears up to drop her debut album “Talk Of This Town”. Hailing from Rostrevor, Northern Ireland; she had the amazing opportunity to travel to Nashville, Tennessee, for songwriting and studio sessions. In 2016, she signed with Warner Bros. Records which led to the release of her debut EP “One”. She followed that up with “Starting From Now” in 2017; and, now she’s gearing up to release her first album.
Teaming up with Hunter Hayes was a surprise we weren’t expecting. He’s had an amazing career to-date, where his 2012 track “Wanted”, soared up charts in the US and Canada – it totally became a viral hit for him. He’s been experimenting lately with his Pictures project that had three interlocking music videos. Not only that, but he also attempted to crack the UK, releasing a UK version of some of his tracks – if anyone can crack this side of the Atlantic with country music, it’s Hunter Hayes.
This collaboration between Catherine McGrath and Hunter Hayes is full of feels. Their voices compliment each other effortlessly. The promotional single is her fifth release from her debut album, following “Talk Of This Town”, “Thought It Was Gonna Be Me”, “Wild”, and “Just In Case”. The music video is very relatable to the song with both artists nailing it on the visual.

The song is beyond sweet and as we previously mentioned, both artists harmonise perfectly on the song. These two voices were meant to collaborate and what a song they’ve released. The lyrics are full of passion and emotion as they sing to one another and the connection can be heard through their singing.
Taking the lead, Catherine McGrath proves that she was made to be a country music artist, and this single alone suggests that she’s going to be someone we all need to be watching. We love how the music video translates the song beautifully, and the split screen really makes the whole visual work.
Both artists manage to act well and they even include a jam session as they both play on their guitars. This is certainly taking us to Nashville and spreading the love to every single listener.
“Don’t Let Me Forget” is available now to download and stream, via Warner Bros. Records. Her debut album, “Talk Of This Town”, is expected to drop on 27 July 2018.
