Country Singer-Songwriter Roslyn Witter Reflects on a Best Friend’s Abusive Relationship Coming to an End with “Letting Her Go”

Hamilton’s Roslyn Witter has an earnest new country release written about a breakup from an outsider’s point of view entitled “Letting Her Go.” 

Inspired by Witter’s experience watching her best friend struggle through a years-long emotionally abusive relationship, “Letting Her Go” reflects on the relief which came with this partner choosing to end the relationship.

“Although I can’t stand the guy for SO many reasons, I love him for letting her go,” explains Witter. 

The melancholic country ballad is simultaneously angry and hopeful, expressing the complexity of Witter’s emotions towards the ending of her friend’s relationship, one which allowed her friend to meet the amazing guy that she is married to today.
