Country music enthusiasts were treated to a compelling new collaboration on Friday, June 28, as Kelsea Ballerini and Noah Kahan unveiled their much-anticipated duet, “Cowboys Cry Too”. This heartfelt country ballad delves into themes of emotional vulnerability, exploring the pressures of stoicism and the importance of expressing one’s feelings.

Ballerini, 30, and Kahan, 27, sparked excitement earlier in the week with cryptic Instagram posts teasing their joint effort. The song, which resonates with its message that “cowboys cry too”, addresses personal experiences and societal expectations surrounding emotional expression.

In an interview on the Wayne D Show, Ballerini shared insights into the genesis of the collaboration, revealing that she first connected with Kahan at the 2024 Grammy Awards in February. Recounting their initial interaction, Ballerini mentioned Kahan’s admiration for her earlier hit “Peter Pan”, which sparked a shared songwriting synergy between them.

“When she was working on ‘Cowboys Cry Too’, which she said honors ‘the men in my life that are emotional,’ she thought of Kahan because he is ‘so down to go there,'” said Ballerini, highlighting Kahan’s contribution to enriching the song’s narrative.

Their musical synergy further solidified in May during a memorable performance at the Academy of Country Music Awards, where they intertwined Ballerini’s “Mountain with a View” and Kahan’s “Stick Season”. The collaboration culminated in a standing ovation from the audience, underscoring their artistic chemistry.

In her announcement on June 26, Ballerini expressed pride in “Cowboys Cry Too”, heralding it as the lead single for her forthcoming album. The release marks a new chapter for the country singer-songwriter, promising an emotionally resonant journey for her fans.
