This song is an intense apology. “God Knows I’ve Tried” is being caught out in the rain after having missed the last bus home. “God Knows I’ve Tried” is pleading at the gates of heaven to be let in. I could hear this song as the end sequence to a movie out times in the country. With a voice reminiscent of Amy, Kelsy Karter brings the thunder in her performance on “God Knows I’ve Tried”. Driving around a city like Nashville while listening to this song I’m sure would feel like home.
Kelsy Karter is originally from New Zealand and currently resides in Los Angeles. I’ve included some links below for more information on Kelsy Karter.
