Chrissy Metz music career continues to rise.
On the heels of her Oscar-nominated song “I’m Standing with You”, Metz has signed a record deal with country music label Universal Nashville. The Academy Award-nominated song is featured in the film “Breakthrough”.
The “This Is Us” actress is working on a full-length country album expected to drop sometime this year, according to label reps — per Variety.
“To say I am excited to fulfill a lifelong dream is an understatement,” Metz said in a statement. “Music has always been my first love and to be working alongside Cindy and the incomparable team at UMG is truly a gift.”
“The cat is out of the bag, y’all!” Metz shared on Instagram. “Here’s the secret I’ve been keeping and dreaming about since I can remember.”
Metz performed “I’m Standing with You” at the 2019 Academy of Country Music Awards in April.
