Texas-Sized Heartbreak

There are plenty of wonderful songs about falling in love. And at least an equal number about falling out of love. But a few weeks ago it occurred to us that, for some reason, the breakup song doesn’t get the sort of attention it deserves. In any event, nobody does a breakup song like a Texan, and we’re about to prove it. Grab a gallon of ice cream and breakout those sweatpants – it’s heartbreak Texas style on this edition of Texas Music Matters. Friday at noon and again Friday night at 11 on KUTX 98-9.
