Kate Gillespie releases new summertime single, "Not Having Fun"

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (July 6, 2018)
Kate Gillespie has released her brand new summertime single, "Not Having Fun" on all digital platforms.

Produced by Johnny Simmen Productions with pedal steel by Matt Klevorn.

The song was added to New Music Friday Canada Spotify Playlist
"I wrote this song just moments after deciding to end a casual relationship that I was very emotionally invested in. I denied my emotions throughout the entirety of that relationship on the notion that I shouldn’t take anything too seriously as we were just having fun. While I was writing the song I came to terms with the fact that I had tried to push my negative feelings aside because he and I shared similar family tragedies in our lives. As it turned out, that meant more to me than I was willing to admit, until I wrote the bridge of “Not Having Fun”. Each verse is a little more honest than the last because I was revealing thoughts to myself that I had repressed as I was writing."
