Falling was the coronation song and debut single for Season 15 American Idol winner Trent Harmon. It was released on April 6, 2016.

BackgroundEdit

Written by Keith Urban, Dallas Davidson, and Brett James, the song was described by Urban at a press conference as a song that sort of fell by the wayside. He later said that he got a phone call asking if he could submit the song to Idol for Trent Harmon to sing at the finale, which he did.

PerformanceEdit

Trent performed it at the final performance show on April 6, 2016. The judges did not critique it, but Urban later said at the post-show press conference that he thought that Trent's performance of it was amazing.

Chart positionEdit

Released on April 6, 2016, the song hit the top 10 on iTunes, peaking at number 6 moments after Trent had won on April 7, 2016. It peaked at number 3. It has also hit number 27 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart.

Critical responseEdit

The song has received positive reviews from critics, who say that the song's sexy, sultry vibe gives the song a similar feel to the Weeknd's Grammy Award-winning hit song "Earned It".

Other versionsEdit

A remixed version of the song appears on Trent's debut EP, which was released on December 9, 2016.
