Hannah Ellis Releases Poetic Acoustic Version of “Never In Love”

Never In Love

One of CMT’s 2018 “Next Women of Country” artists Hannah Ellis has been the one to watch. Earlier this year Ellis completed her stint on the CMT Next Women of Country Tour as well as an opening slot on Gavin DeGraw’s summer tour.

This past Friday, December 6th, Ellis released an acoustic version of her strong pop-country song “Never in Love;” a song on the country singer + songwriter’s debut self-titled EP released back in 2017. The song portrays a breakup, where one entity was really only in love, not the other. She sings: “How could it be over when it never was? / You were never in love / Just in love with the thought of me / Not in love like you oughta be / Just enough to get all you need / And I had nothing to give / When you asked for it all back / But you already knew that / Cause there was never an us / And you were never in love”

When asked about a favorite story about how one of her songs came together on Cowboys & Indians, Ellis answered, “Man, I feel like there are so many. One of my favorites is how “Never in Love’ was written, my cowriters and I (which happen to be my boyfriend and our best friend) went swimming at a friend’s house and we came inside and started writing this fun, upbeat title. Halfway through the song we took a little break and started talking about our friend’s recent breakup. Without meaning to we ended up writing about that experience instead of our original idea. I ended up recording that song on my first EP because it was just so organic and came from such an authentic place.”

Ellis shared on Instagram, “This song has never made a playlist or been a single, and yet I haven’t played a show in two years that someone didn’t request it. So I decided to strip it all the way back to how it was written; @joshkerrmusic, @nickwaynemusic and I sitting around a piano putting words and melody to a fresh wound.. Thank you for loving it. #NeverInLoveAcoustic.”
