Beat-up pickup trucks, too much love of whiskey and gambling problems aside, heartbreak is one of the main themes in many a honky-tonk tune. But songs about lost love are not the domain of country crooners alone. Musicians of every ilk have been touched by the muse of the lovelorn. So, what exactly goes into making a great breakup song? If you are a local musician, tell us about a song by you or your band inspired by someone who had his or her heart stomped on (or who did the heart stomping). Tell us where it was written, why it was written, who it was written for...you get the drill. We want to hear your story. Please include at least your first name, the name of your band and your role in the band (vox, guitar, bass, drums, horns, etc.).
