At some point in everyone’s life, we wonder what it would be like to just get in your car and drive with no destination in mind. Afghanistan combat veteran and pop country artist Bree Jaxson, had the same thought and decided to take it and run with the idea and write a hot new country song about it!

“Giving In” is about chasing that dream before anything else gets in the way and making that dream impossible to chase. She even goes on to say “ I ain’t gonna shift until I learn what it’s like to live.” Those are the types of lyrics that make you sit back and realize that she is ready to go out and experience the adventure and live her life to the fullest!

With the vibe of the modern country pop sound, this is a song that you can easily jam to as you roll down the windows and let your hand feel the wind. For a lot of us, taking off and just seeing where life takes us is not an option or something that we will never actually follow through with. I found it a very important statement when Bree said “And I felt every ounce of fear and doubt…”. That just goes to show that the journey is not always going to be smooth sailing but sometimes that is a part of chasing your dreams!
