SINGLE REVIEW: Sara Evans “Put My Heart Down”

In March, Sara Evans released Slow Me Down, her seventh studio album. This reviewer wrote, ‘Every single beat is felt, head to toe. It’s quite a feat to balance ever-changing feelings in a song, let alone throughout an album’, and Sara ‘maintains a vocal equilibrium from song to song’.” The title track/first single was a Top 20 hit.

Put My Heart Down” is the album’s second single (impact date September 29). The lyrics are straightforward, Sara’s vocals are strong, but the tune’s tempo doesn’t quite fit a song about the need to drop a guillotine on heartbreak. Love didn’t just grow cold and die here; it spewed a poison through her veins forcing her to give up on the man she thought was her ‘forever’.

“This kind of love Is dangerous

So pack up all your things and just leave some air to breathe

A million toxic tears fallin’ like rain ‘round here

This is the final hour

The end of our story tonight

And I don’t wanna fight …

Put my heart down, put my heart down Put my heart down, put my heart down

And walk away

Just like it was a loaded gun”

I’ve been privileged to write album reviews for Got Country Online since 2012. John Berry,John Michael Montgomery, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Alan Jackson their music caught my ear, their lyrics caught my heart. Country music is my go-to, whether my day is great or not. I love to crank up old and new tunes, kick back and enjoy!
