Known to crush high notes and slay expressive melodies, Jennifer Nettles releases “Hey Heartbreak” to Country radio. “That essential burn of humanity is apparent […] especially on the shimmering” (One Country) new single. Featured on her critically-acclaimed solo sophomore album PLAYING WITH FIRE, Jennifer “proceeds to serve notice to […] sadness itself” (Country Standard Time) as she tears into unflinching lyrics from songwriters Sara Haze, Shane McAnally, Jimmy Robbins. Jennifer insists “Hey, heartbreak, give me your key / It’s you, it’s not me / Oh, you only bring me down, down, down, down / Hey, heartbreak, don’t come back /I swept up your shattered glass / What goes around is comin’ back around, ‘round, ‘round, ‘round.” Following a performance of the punchy track on the TODAY show, host Kathie Lee Gifford demanded, “That’s how the pros do it!”
Jennifer also recently unwrapped news of her first-ever holiday album, TO CELEBRATE CHRISTMAS, due out October 28 on Big Machine Records.
