Oh, The Pain: Tryin’ to Get Over You by Vince Gill and Alison Krauss

Alison Krauss Vince Gill Tryin' to get over you

Love most absolutely hurts when you’ve been left alone and know there’s no exact remedy for the pain it caused. Vince Gill and Alison Krauss’s “Tryin’ to Get Over You” further stabs the heart because of the song’s lyrics and their soulful voices.

About The Song and Their Version

Vince Gill, an American country music singer and songwriter wrote the song and released it as part of his album I Still Believe In You. The three-minute track topped the US Billboard Hot Country Songs chart, while the Recording Industry Association of America awarded the album five-time platinum.

“Tryin’ to Get Over You” is about trying, giving one’s utmost best to move on from the pain caused by being left alone by a lover. Despite the help from friends and other loved ones, it will still be challenging to get through the pain.

In their CMT live performance, Alison Krauss and Vince Gill sang their version of “Tryin’ to Get Over You.” In the first bit, Krauss cracks a joke about how Gill sounded like a woman when she first heard his voice on the radio, singing the song. Their version started with the soft plucking of the guitar strings, and Alison sang the first verse solo.

Their voices blended perfectly together, and hearing them the first time gives you goosebumps. The band did a great job on the chords and the backing vocals. The song’s lyrics are already full of pain, but seeing their live version where you can feel their emotions can bring you to tears.

The interlude features a solo from a guitarist and Krauss herself. She played the violin, and although it lasted just a few seconds, she nailed her part beautifully. 

Their live version of “Tryin’ to Get Over You” is one of Vince Gill’s songs that hit the heart and soul with the lyrics and the melody. You know it’s a good song when you connect with the music, and it stirs emotions in you.

Remember to have tissues by your side when you listen to their version right here.
