You Could Break a Heart Like That

Album: Even The River Runs (2013)

Songfacts®:

  • In our interview with Joel Crouse at the 2013 Academy of Country Music Awards, the 20-year-old singer/songwriter told us that this song was one of his favorites, adding that he wrote the song three years earlier. "It's just a heartbreak song," said Crouse. "But the cool thing about it, it's not 'I hate you' heartbreak, it's like, we can still be friends, but what you did hurt me, and it's going to take some time to get over."
