Since her 2017 breakthrough hit with "Broken Prayers", Nashville-based Riley has been something of a fixture on Cross Rhythms radio. Now with her latest single, she continues her run of powerful pop anthems. Despite one publicist calling it a "power ballad", "Fighting For Me" is actually a mid-tempo song and, with attention-grabbing production and her subtly expressive voice, the lyric bites home. "When the going gets tough/And my strength's not enough/I see you showing up like never before/The battle for my heart/You took on from the start/You are the peace when my mind's at war." Outstanding.
