Sarah Gray’s new single “Jeans” is a beautifully open and relatable song, showcasing Sarah’s skills as a songwriter and her passionate yet delicate vocal delivery. The initial acoustic landscape builds up to sparkling moments that perfectly highlight the hope and love in the storyline. Confronting the difficult relationship she’s faced with body image, “Jeans” takes listeners along Sarah’s journey to self-acceptance.

“I hope that all listeners, especially young girls, appreciate their bodies more and learn that life is worth more than a stupid jean size. With social media, it's so easy to get caught up in the "highlight" reels of our lives, and I want to show my listeners that nobody is perfect.”

While it wasn’t easy to be honest and vulnerable about her struggles in her writing, knowing that her story could help others helped Sarah to write down all the details.

“As a songwriter, I aim to write songs about difficult topics as a way to show others that it's okay to be raw and vulnerable. While it's terrifying at the same time, it's so worth it to share my story.”

“Jeans” was written over the summer in just 20 minutes (a rarity for Sarah) and brought to life with Nashville producer Phil Barnes.

“Phil has truly impacted my life in such a short amount of time as he's pushed me to expand my artistry and songwriting. He truly listened to my vision throughout the whole recording process and made this song even better than I could have imagined.”
