Abi Carter Shares Inspiration Behind “This Isn’t Over”

Besides performing the National Anthem, Carter shared her entrance into the music industry with the single “This Isn’t Over.” Speaking with Heavy about her inspiration behind the song, she recalled her tough upbringing. “It was during that time that my parents separated. My mom had to start going back to school to get a degree to support all of us. I, subsequently, kind of had to leave public high school and go back into homeschooling so that I could get a job to be able to buy a car and take my siblings to and from school and extracurricular activities.”

Having the chance to release a new single during the final week of American Idol, Carter knew she wanted to share “This Isn’t Over” with the world. And other than being a talented singer, the star insisted, “I definitely see myself as a singer songwriter, an artist, and I wanted to put out something that I believed in, that I personally experienced.”

As for the finished product, Carter focused on her hard work getting to that point. “We worked so hard on it and we chose every little bit of it. And so that was really cool to be able to still be myself as an artist and put that out.”
