Following news last week that Lady Gaga has officially signed on to headline next year's Super Bowl halftime show, the singer is sharing another new song "Million Reasons."
It's a bit of a change for the pop star, as it's twangy and soulful. But it shouldn't come as much of a surprising, as she co-wrote it with country songwriting vet Hillary Lindsey, who wrote Carrie Underwood's Grammy-winning "Jesus, Take the Wheel," in addition to songs for Faith Hill, Martina McBride, Shakira, Lady Antebellum and Taylor Swift.
Gaga had been teasing the track throughout the past week and she debuted it live during a show in Nashville, which is part of a short dive bar tour, the latest sign she's aiming to get back to her roots with her new album Joanne, which is titled after her middle name.
"This record was about me trying to understand my father, and his grief," Gaga has previously said of the album, which is out on Oct. 21. "It’s also a record about me trying to understand myself and wondering where I’m going next in life ... So Joanne is like, you know, Lady Gaga if you erase all the fame.”
Bud Light broadcasted the dive bar show live starting Wednesday at 10 p.m. EST, with the song arriving after the performance, just before midnight. Gaga also performed new songs "Sinner’s Prayer" and "A-Yo."
