Country newcomer Carter Faith tells it like it is in her brand new single, “Sinners In A Small Town” premiering exclusively on Country Now.

Co-written by Carter Faith, Margaret Valentine and Jen Stegall, the stripped-down country tune finds Faith calling out the double standards of smalltown living and the injustices that people face on a normal basis. Throughout the track, the rising star acknowledges how certain issues are swept under the rug and points out how people turn their heads to various wrongdoings.

“Around here what goes around don’t come around/ You could scream out loud/ but it wouldn’t make a sound/ ‘Cause when nobody’s listening/ The truth, it can’t come out/ Ashes are ashes, they don’t fall down/ ‘Cause no one judges sinners in a small town,” she sings on the chorus.

The North Carolina native, who moved to Nashville to attend Belmont University as a songwriting major, says she hopes the song resonates with people everywhere.

“‘Sinners in a Small Town’ was written to shed light on the things that happen that don’t get justice. The song is not really even just about a small town, as I feel that there are injustices happening everywhere,” she explains. “My hope is that people who listen to this song can bring their own past into it, and leave it with the song. I want people to feel a sense of healing, peace, and that they are not alone when they sing along.”

“Sinners In A Small Town” follows the July release of her debut track “Leaving Tennessee,” which has now amassed over 1 million on-demand streams.

Carter Faith recently signed an Artist Development deal with Altadena, founded by the late busbee (Maren Morris, Carly Pearce, Keith Urban).

“Sinners In A Small Town” will be available everywhere beginning Friday, Oct. 16. Click above to listen to the Country Now exclusive premiere.
