Many fantastic songwriters see their songs covered by mainstream artists, but they are not always given all the credit they deserve. We’re gonna try and right that wrong here.
Sure, the Eli Young Band made the song famous, but “Even If It Breaks Your Heart” is a song written by Will Hoge and Eric Paslay in April 2009 and originally recorded by Hoge on his seventh studio album, The Wreckage.
Before this song was made famous by Tim McGraw, it was written by the very talented Bruce Robison. His wife Kelly Willis is also featured on the track – and is a fine singer/songwriter herself.
The song reached Number One on the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks.
