There’s no doubt, breakup songs are prevalent in country music. There’s “A Little Bit Stronger,” a 2010 Sara Evans hit and “Here’s a Quarter (Call Someone Who Cares),” a 1991 Travis Tritt song, just to name a few. What one rarely brings up in this wide collection of somber songs is how expensive it is to take your mind off the dissolved relationship, whether it be through drinking or continually putting gas in your tank so that you can drive around and ease your mind. Reid Haughton is changing that through clever songwriting in newest single “Gettin’ Over Her.”
Co-written with Jordan Rowe and Dylan Marlowe, Haughton pieced it all together on paper not all that long ago. “This song was one of those that just kinda all spilled out in about two hours and I knew right then it was one I wanted to put out” explains Haughton. “Writing with those two guys is always a pleasure and I’m really proud of what Josh Bright, my producer, was able to do with the song and how it turned out.” Both Rowe and Marlowe have solo careers of their own, also having music on streaming sites. July of 2019 was a big year for the pair of co-writers, with Rowe releasing a 4 song self-titled EP and Marlowe releasing single “That Truck” on the 4th of July.
As previously stated, this song’s lyrical content is something that is unmatched to many other breakup songs but Haughton says it’s still relatable for anyone who has gone through it. “I feel like the song is very relatable and something that everyone has felt at some point in time and I hope people can connect with it the way that I have.”
As 2020 rolls on, Haughton will continue to crank out potential hit songs while interning at River House in Nashville this summer. He will also be out on the road showcasing his talents hoping to build his constantly growing fan base.
