Brinley Addington Traditional on ‘Another Heartache’

Traditional country music is alive and well!

Brinley Addington Keeps It Traditional on ‘Another Heartache’

Brinley Addington’s new song is a beacon of hope for fans who lament that traditional country music is fading. The Tennessee native offers up an instant barroom classic with “Another Heartache.” The song features prominent electric guitars set over a backdrop of staggering drums, flavored with some aching pedal steel licks in the chorus as Addington delivers a classic trying-to-get-over-heartbreak lyric. It’s the kind of song you could picture him singing in a rowdy dive bar as last call is approaching, but you could also picture him throwing back one last beer in the audience and ruefully shaking his head before pouring himself — and maybe a female companion — into a cab.

“I don’t need another heartache / Never did me any good / One thing I know about a heartbreak / It never heals the way it should / When the sun comes up tomorrow / Let’s just call it what it was / I don’t need another heartache / So baby let’s don’t fall in love,” he sings in the chorus.

The song is one of five tracks on Addington’s new EP, the appropriately titled Songs From a Bar, which is set for release on Friday (April 20).

“I love all the songs on this EP, but ‘Another Heartache’ really set the tone for what we wanted to do with this project,” Addington says. “I was writing with Brice Long and Terry McBride and we wanted to try and capture a classic Dwight Yoakam or Radney Foster feel that talked about kind of saying, ‘No thanks,’ to having your heart broken one more time. We were looking for songs for the EP when I told my producer, Aaron Eshuis, that I’d love to build a record around this kind of song, and that’s what we did. It’s a lighthearted, feel-good song, but it touches on some real feelings as well, and that’s my favorite kind of song to sing.”

Traditional country music comes to Addington naturally. One of his earliest memories is of himself up on his parents’ coffee table at the age of three, pretending he was performing on the Grand Ole Opry, and he counts Alan Jackson, Randy Travis and George Strait among his influences. In more recent years he’s made a name for himself as a songwriter for artists including Tyler Farr, who cut his song “I Should Go to Church Sometime.” Addington has opened shows for some of country music’s biggest contemporary stars, including Florida Georgia Line, Thomas Rhett, Jon Pardi and Chris Young, as well as Marty Stuart, Ronnie Milsap and even rocker Gavin DeGraw.
