Caitlynne Curtis Has ‘Been Thru Hell’ And Survived (Review)
Caitlynne Curtis has walked through the valley of the shadow of death – and lived to tell the tale. With her galloping new tune “Been Thru Hell,” the singer-songwriter rises victorious from a sea of troubles far more self-possessed than she ever was before. Her resilience is infectious, and she can now confront anything.
“I’ve weathered storms. I’ve fought my demons. I’ve been through hell but I found myself and made it out stronger than ever,” says Curtis. “[This song] is about keeping your faith strong no matter what you are going through. Light always shines brighter than darkness, and you can always find that light at the end of the tunnel.”
“I’ve been through hell, oh / And I didn’t break or bend,” she sings. “I’ve been through hell / And I kept my soul, my friends / I’ve been through hell.” Her voice clip-clops through the verses, a refrain that gives her great power. Even in the darkest hour, those words supercharge down to her core. “Jesus broke me out, and now I’m free again,” she later adds, also admitting to whipping “that devil’s ass.”
“Been Thru Hell” follows an EP titled Self-Love, as well as several singles, including “Where You Left Off,” all released this year alone.

Later this summer, Caitlynne Curtis hits the road alongside Struggle Jennings to support Jelly Roll on his Backroad Batpitsm Tour. The cross-country venture will also include such artists as Ashley McBryde, Elle King, and Yelawolf, among others.
