When I read this headline, I was really hoping the song would be RaeLynn’s “Love Triangle”, but I have adored X Ambassadors “Unsteady” from the first time I heard it so I am definitely okay with the choice.
I am pretty open about how divorce impacted me as a kid, and I think it still does in ways I am not even aware of all the time. It’s confusing, ugly and hurtful when you’re little and don’t really know how to talk about it or express what you’re feeling. That is why I love this performance. It beautifully captures all those icky feelings you can’t expertly craft into words.
Rare Country share Julianne’s take on the whole thing:
“It’s good therapy, it’s beautiful,” Julianne added, according to “Entertainment Tonight.” “That’s what’s so amazing about dance, is being able to express that and have moments like this with our mom in the audience.”
Her brother, Derek, added, “This piece is sort of a closure piece,” added Derek, whose parents got a divorce when him and Julianne were young.
