Katie Pruitt Releases “Grace Has A Gun”


Emerging singer, songwriter and musician, Katie Pruitt’s, new song, Grace Has A Gun, is out now. Already receiving critical acclaim, NPR Music’s Bob Boilen declares, “a song that just gave me chills,” while Paste calls it, “witty, sad and potent.”

Reflecting on the song, Pruitt shares, “In a relationship-centered around the toxicity of mental illness, I learned firsthand how difficult it is to love someone that doesn’t love themselves. The red flags you are willing to miss and the burdens you are willing to carry, because you are under the impression that you could be their cure. Only to learn, that loving someone this self-destructive will only kill you both.”

Grace Has A Gun is the latest track unveiled from Pruitt’s highly anticipated debut album, Expectations, which will be released February 21 via Rounder Records and is now available for pre-order. Co-produced by Pruitt and her close friend Mike Robinson, Expectations was recorded in Nashville and consists of ten new songs written/co-written by Pruitt including the title track, which was released this past fall to critical acclaim. Rolling Stone praises, “there’s something wonderfully nostalgic about Katie Pruitt’s ‘Expectations.’ The chorus-pedaled guitar tone wouldn’t be out of place on a Tears for Fears album, while the arrangement—full of pop hooks, layered harmonies and reverb-heavy riffs—rustles up the timeless, infinite feeling of being young and limitless,” while American Songwriter declares, “The single demonstrates what Pruitt does best: blend indie rock, Americana and solid songwriting.” Ahead of the release, Pruitt has released two additional album tracks: Loving Her and Out Of The Blue.

In support of the album, Pruitt will kick off her extensive headline tour next month with a special record release show at Nashville’s The Basement on February 21. Additional stops include Los Angeles’ The Hotel Café, San Francisco’s Café Du Nord, Seattle’s Sunset Tavern, Denver’s Globe Hall, New York’s Mercury Lounge, Philadelphia’s MilkBoy and Atlanta’s Eddie’s Attic among several others. See below for complete details.
