Divorce Inspired RaeLynn's New Single 'Love Triangle'


(Radio.com) RaeLynn's new single, "Love Triangle" is -- sadly -- resonating with a lot of Americans. The song is inspired by her experiences in dealing with her parents' divorce; she was three years old at the time.

She told Radio.com, "I never thought, when I wrote the song, that it would be a single, I just thought it would be a song on my album. But when I found out that over 51% of marriages end in divorces. I knew right then that this just wasn't my story."

And once she started performing "Love Triangle," she learned, first hand, that she was right. When I started singing the song on radio tours and I wrote it when I was 18, so I've been singing it for four years fans would just come up to me and tell me how the song relates to them. I heard so many stories already, without my album even being out yet."

"This is a song that needed to be written," she says. "There's been a couple of songs about divorce in country music, but none from the child's perspective.

She shared her father's reaction to the song: "My dad said, 'I remember me and your mom having conversations about making sure you wouldn't feel the way we feel about each other. We would hide you from it.' But I remember as a kid, when my dad dropped me off with my mom, it was very cut and dried. But that's just how it is." Read more here.
