Bluegrass Breakups – Playlist by David Chernack

The consensus is clear: Tony Rice says it was never meant to be. Flat Lonesome reports that it’s just sad. Hot Rise says it’s time to walk the way the wind blows. Breakup songs make up a big chunk of the bluegrass canon, representing some of the genre’s richest performances. Some songs are lonesome and blue like Dolly Parton’s “I Still Miss Someone,” while others are acerbic and vengeful like Dan Tyminski’s “Whose Shoulder Will You Cry On.” Enjoy this week’s playlist of bluegrass breakup songs
