You will absolutely love Nicole Croteau’s new song, “Who Do You Love” released today (January 19, 2024! Listen here. “Who Do You Love,” is about accepting and even embracing the changes that happen in life. Change can be scary, but it can also be a great thing that opens new doors for us to explore. For Nicole, this song is specifically about changes in her relationship with her husband. Their love story spans over many stages of life and, of course, people change as they age and learn about themselves and the world around them.
“I had this moment of ‘Oh shoot, I don’t know if I am the same person anymore, the same 19 year old girl that he fell in love with. I wonder if he still loves me as much as that girl he met all those years ago,” Nicole tells us.
The reflection this song inspires helped both Nicole and her husband get through those times of “what if” and are still happily married to this day. Even though this song is about her relationship, Nicole really wants her listeners to take away the lesson that it’s okay to change. Change is good and we can always learn from it, especially when we can sit back and reflect on the before and after of any big changes life has to throw at us. She wants to encourage listeners to love where they are at in life, at any stage, and learn to embrace life as a whole.
After “having the busiest year of [her] life,” Nicole is ready for a year full of new music. After living in Nashville the past 10 years and mostly writing for other artists, Nicole is set to put out her own music and perform it. However, she will continue to write for other artists, saying “I think I will always be a songwriter first because that is really who I am. I love helping people tell their stories and love hearing them sing the music we write together.”
Her plan is to release a new single every 6-8 weeks and put out her first EP this summer. She’ll even be making an appearance on the Anzie Blue stage with The Women of Country on March 4th, so make sure to mark your calendars and visit nicolecroteau.com to learn more!
