Just How A Heart Breaks

Album: The Healing (2014)

Songfacts®:

  • This poignant love ballad was written by Jones at the piano. It is one of several lovelorn tracks on The Healing inspired by his relationship with his former Steel Magnolia partner/girlfriend Meghan Linsey. "It's like opening an old wound, and that makes me nervous," Jones admitted to Rolling Stone Country of revisiting their split through his music. "But it made for an honest record that's straight from the heart."
