“Somebody’s Heartbreak” is the lovestruck equivalent of that misguided innocence. Hayes is volunteering to get his heart broken by the girl he fancies, figuring it’s better to have love and lost than to have never loved at all.
It’s charming. It’s country. It’s sweet but not saccharine. It’s a teenage country record that’s equal parts teenage and country.
The young guy’s ridiculously talented, and I hate to send ill will his way. But honestly, I can’t wait ’till this guy really
does get his heart broken. He’ll make some killer country music then.
