Shotgun Rider was a band well on its way to a promising future. They were streaming like crazy, playing every mid-cap room in the region, and making regular appearances on festival bills. But as band members sometimes do, last year they ultimately decided to part ways. So what do you do when you’ve got pipes, you’re young, want to be back out on the road, and you were the former frontman of a band? Go solo of course!
In August, Logan Samford kicked off his solo collection with a cover of the Hunter Hutchinson’s “Lovin’ for the Last Time” and took it to over 100K streams! He then dropped an original “In It For You” in October, which hung out in our Texas Music Spotify Chart’s Top 30 for several weeks and now he’s gearing up for his next release, which we think is also his best so far!
“Broke Heart” pairs a punchy rhythm, a climactic musical buildup, extended smooth notes, and a sing-along chorus. I’m a sucker for sad songs with passionate deliveries and melodies that carry their emotion on their sleeves and this is it to a T! This is one of those songs your heartbroken buddy cranks up on the drive home from the bar.
Penned while Samford was 20 years old and attending South Plains College in Levelland TX, the song’s inspiration stems from relationship problems the Nazareth, TX native was having at the time. “The song is about a guy who tried too hard to make a girl love him,” he told TMP. “The more he looks into what they had, the more he comes to the realization that she was wrong for him all along and that she was just ‘another broke heart’ ” he continued.
The single drops this Friday (11/22) and is paving the way for Samford debut EP, which is slated for February 2020. Stayed tuned to his social media for updates on the project. Be sure to add “Broke Heart” to your playlist once it drops, but in the meantime enjoy an early listen below and let us know what you think!
