Vince Gill Sings His Pain in “Tryin’ to Get Over You”

Vince Gill + Tryin' to Get Over You

Heartbreaks are never easy, and Vince Gill interprets the pain of letting go of someone in “Tryin’ to Get Over You.” The song perfectly resonates with the emotions of losing a loved one and trying to move on from the pain.

Released in January 1994 as the fifth single from his album “I Still Believe in You,” this song topped the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart. It marked Gill’s final number one single until he reached the top spot again twenty-three years later with a guest vocal on Chris Young’s “Sober Saturday Night” in March 2017.

Meaning Behind The Song 

Released in 1992 and Written by Vince Gill himself, “Tryin’ to Get Over You” is a song that represents someone experiencing the pain of having his heart broken. Vince captures the feelings of a man who struggles to let go and move on from a love that has already ended.

The lyrics of the song narrate the rollercoaster of emotions that one juggles after a breakup and the heavy feeling of being in denial that your love is already gone. With his heartfelt singing, Vince can make the listeners feel the pain, similar to what he is trying to convey through the song.

The lyrics “When it comes to love, I’ve all but given up. ‘Cause life don’t mean nothin’ without you” convey Vince’s perspective of love. It tells the listener how broken he is and how nothing else matters after the breakup.

The heartbreaking song was ironically loved by many, so it took the top spot on various music charts. It also helped establish Vince’s name in the country music industry, paving the way for more opportunities and recognition. 

We can’t blame the people who became immensely in love with “Tryin’ to Get Over You” since the lyrics and melody vividly painted the picture of a broken man and showed the hardship of moving on. That is the main reason why people love it. It’s raw, honest, and relatable.
