Priscilla Block “Peaked In High School” Song Review

Her refreshingly, blunt lyrics have gotten her labeled as an artist to watch in 2021 by Amazon Music, PANDORA, Spotify, CMT, MusicRow, Country Now, and many more. She’s opened for Dierks Bentley, Kelsea Ballerini, Rodney Atkins, and several others. Currently touring with Ashley McBryde, Priscilla Block is scaling country radio charts and has even earned praise from American Songwriter stating, “Priscilla’s songs emanate authenticity, making others feel they have a place at the table, and someone new to relate to.” 


Earlier this year, Block released her self-titled debut EP and is a part of CMT’s Next Women of Country. To top it all off, this past Friday, November 5th, 2021, she released her newest single “Peaked In High School.” Block shared her thoughts on the track with PEOPLE saying, “I was the girl that had no interest in doing things how everybody else did them. This song kinda just goes out to anybody that that’s ever made me feel not enough. And to any young people out there, people tell you that high school will be some of the best years of your life. I am living proof that it is not. I wish I knew that back in the day. I would have saved so many fricking tears.”


“I left town, you stuck around / You went to state and settled down / And always to judge what I was doing / I got a deal, you got divorced / You see my face on Billboard / I changed the number you’re still calling.

The track features Priscilla’s twangy voice and acoustic guitar as well as some noticeable harmonies. The simple, singer/songwriter vibe compliments her voice and the brash yet beautiful lyrics. Block is candid with her audience and listeners the way close friends speak to each other: completely unfiltered. She shows us her relatable high school wounds with this gotta-prove-‘em-wrong attitude captured perfectly in the track. The only folks who won’t understand this song are the ones who actually did “Peak In High School.”
