Macy Martin, ‘Broke Down’ Lyric Video [Exclusive Premiere]
Texas-born singer Macy Martin is premiering the lyric video for her single “Broke Down” exclusively for readers of The Boot. Readers can press play above to watch.
"Broke Down" is an uptempo track featuring a catchy groove and lyrics. As soon as she heard the song, written by fellow rising artist Brooke Eden, Liz Sharpe, Matt Alderman and Sam Brooker, Martin says that she knew she wanted to cut it.
“The message of the song is easily relatable, and although the song is about a breakup, the tempo still has a groove that's Saturday-night, hairbrush-mic-worthy," Martin tells The Boot. "Nearly everyone's experienced a relationship that starts out great, but ends up falling apart."
"Broke Down" also has a personal connection for Martin, who found an old family joke hidden in the lyrics: “Growing up, my dad had an old truck that always broke down,” she explains. “It's been a big joke in my family for years! So the analogy the lyrics portray hits home."
It’s easy to hear that connection of which Martin speaks near the chorus of "Broke Down," when Martin sings, “Like my dad’s old car parked in the backyard / it’s never gonna start again, but he’s never gonna trade it in / He won’t fix it up, he won’t let it go / Because he remembers when those wheels went 'round and 'round, but it’s broke down.”
After being discovered by Kent Wells, a producer known for his work with Dolly Parton, Martin has released multiple EPs and a full-length album; she's also landed multiple singles on the MusicRow Country Breakout chart. “Broke Down” hit radio earlier this year.
