“She Don’t Love You”
Written by Eric Paslay and Jennifer Wayne
Any time a new country single invites comparisons to “Life Turned Her That Way”, you know you’re in for something good.
“She Don’t Love You” is a simple country song about a woman who has been hurt too many times, and Eric Paslay sings the fire out of it. You can actually hear him do that, as he’s backed by little more than an acoustic guitar through a good part of the record.
Sure, you can see the ending coming from a mile away. Spoiler alert: the narrator is the one who broke her heart. But surprise endings only work the first time you listen to it. What keeps you coming back for more is sincerity, authenticity, and sometimes, some good old-fashioned heartbreak.
