We have said it time and time again, there is nothing like a solid collaboration in country music. Today, singer-songwriters, Graham Barham and Lauren Watkins deliver a gift to our ears with their new collaboration song. “Straight To My Heart” is officially out today.

“Looks bad, I Know // I’m drunk //S o won’t you just go easy on me // You yelled, I used // The end of us // Hit me like a truck at full speed // What else was I gonna do // If I gotta get over you // ten months went straight out the door // A good thing went straight to hell // Pedal went straight to the floor // No coming back I can tell // I shoulda went straight to bed // But I went straight to the bar // Whiskey went straight to my head // Goodbye went straight to my heart”

Written by the artists with Will Bundy and Lydia Vaughan, “Straight To My Heart” will literally pierce your heart after just one listen. The song is a beautiful back and forth between Barham and Watkins. It depicts heartbreak in its truest form and chronicles the stages of grief at the end of a relationship. Both Barham and Watkins give a lot of credit to their fellow songwriters on creating the song.

“The title was Lydia Vaughan’s idea, and I’ve been wanting to write a song with Lauren for a long time. It worked out well that Will Bundy, my best friend and producer, is her fiancé and they were counseling me through a relationship at the time. Lauren was such an important part of writing this song, and of course she and Will knew what was happening in my life. She took the reins, and we wrote the song and cut it all within 36 hours,” shared Barham.

Both Barham and Watkins are exciting rising artists in country music right now. “Straight To My Heart” is an incredible song to add to each of their prospective, growing music catalogs.
