We don’t get real traditional country songs much on radio anymore. But last week I heard one and I had to listen to it a couple times. Then I had to find a live performance because the singer is really something special.
Here is a performance of the song, Till It Breaks My Heart. If you like traditional country songs that make you feel real emotions then this one is for you. Give it a listen or two and share what you think.
Till It Breaks My Heart – Marianne Allison
Before you start listening to lyrics in the song you feel the emotion. There is something powerful going on here. You get the feeling there is tension and sadness between two people.
It’s likely a breakup or something. There is one person that made a mistake and the other person is hurting. In fact, it seems like both are hurting and just coming to terms with the way things will be going forward now.
The positive is that I think the song is about one of them chasing the other until it breaks their heart. It’s about doing whatever it takes.
That’s my interpretation. I’m not sure if that’s the right interpretation so you’ll have to let me know your thoughts.
Either way, this is obviously someone with a great country voice and a feel for a great country song. The story about the song seems to be that Marianne and the gentleman in the video wrote the song and it got the attention for a Burt Reynolds video.
Now I”m curious about the movie 🙂
