Today’s song is the latest single from Warner Bros. artist RaeLynn. ‘Love Triangle’ is climbing the country radio chart, currently sitting at #29. The track is based on RaeLynn’s parents’ divorce and was described by Taste Of Country as “an autobiographical ballad with a fairytale quality”.
Speaking to People‘s Danielle Anderson, RaeLynn said “I was headed to a writing session and my mom and dad were arguing that day about really the stupidest thing. I got to the writing session and there were two of my dearest friends, Jimmy Robbins and Nicolle Galyon, and I started venting about being a kid of divorce. I was like, ‘You know what, though? I don’t want to be in a sad mood today. Let’s just write something fun and sappy.’ Then I threw out the title, ‘Love Triangle.’ I don’t remember who said it, but they were like, ‘Well if you think about it, you’re kind of in a love triangle today. I just think that this song is going to touch a lot of people. My dad would pick me up every other Friday at six, and drop me off by six on Sunday. Around four every Sunday, I remember him getting a little sad, because he wouldn’t get to see his baby for two weeks. I can’t imagine, when I become a mother, not being able to see my child for two weeks. That’s really hard, but that’s the truth, and that’s the normal for a lot of kids in divorced homes. They have to split their time and split their love. It really is not that fair, but it’s a lot of our normal and our truth.”
