In Their Words: “For some time, whenever I sat down to try and write, the term ‘Heartbreak Man’ kept coming up, and I couldn’t figure out exactly why. I decided I wanted to challenge myself and use it for a song. It naturally matched up with the breakup I had just gone through. Breaking up with this person was one of the hardest things I ever had to do, but I wanted for this song to make it sound easy. I wanted this song to have a naïve strut that illustrated a broken man breaking anything that’s in his way — a man that knocks a lamp off the table and claims that its the table’s fault. That table should’ve known who he thought he was and that lamp never looked good there in the first place. I cowrote this song with the great Ted Russell Kamp and Eric Corne.” — Sam Morrow
