Lauren Jenkins Powerful Song Titled “Ain’t That Hard”
One of our favorite rising singer-songwriters in the industry, Lauren Jenkins has one of the most angelic and emotive voices out there. She can literally sing anything, including Bruce Springsteen’s classics like “Hungry Heart” and “Stolen Car.” The songstress released her debut studio album last March, (2019) and now she is back with a beautiful, brand new song entitled “Ain’t That Hard.”
The new, acoustic song feels like home. Jenkins dreamy, yet raspy tone and story-telling soul make the perfect pair. “Ain’t That Hard” is quietly powerful, as she sings about towns and places being exactly the same and difficult moments not being unique. It may sound cynical, but it instead comes across an empowering statement to a heartbreaker and a message to an ex. She knows she is strong enough to endure the pain of a break-up, and that life will continue.
“Same everywhere as it is right here / Main Street bars and football teams / Rusty cars and homecoming queens / You ain’t as special as you think you are / It ain’t that hard / to break a heart”
Jenkins shared a sentiment about the song via Twitter, sharing that the song, “makes [her] heart feel stronger than it has in a while.” It is the perfect way to embody the feel of the song. During your first listen, it may feel melancholy, but the strength is even more profound. We cannot wait to see what Jenkins creates next.
