Demo of the Week: “If I Wanted A Heartbreak”
Writers: Abram Dean, Jason Duke, Mark Irwin, Jason Massey
Vibe: Rocking, romantic, clever
Key Lyrics: “But if I wanted a heartbreak I’d head over your way, your place / Always seems to mess me up / If I wanted some lonely I’d let you hold me, show me / You can’t hang onto your love.”
Could Be A Good Fit For: Dierks Bentley, Lauren Alaina, Dylan Scott, Chris Lane
X-Factor: The sultry verses lead to a rocking, foot-stomping chorus that acknowledges the frustration that accompanies a complicated love. It’s a creative take on the classic dilemma of whether or not to reignite an old, painful flame, and the production is radio-ready.
