Country trio Avenue Beat (Savana Santos, Sam Backoff and Sami Bearden) have released a single from their self-titled debut EP called "Ruin That For Me". Their fun, empowering, upbeat tune flips the script on a typical reaction to a break up. There may be memories attached, but heartbreaks can be cured by living life!
In an interview with Billboard, Backoff recalled a breakup she went through in high school that inspired the song. "After we had ended things, I was trying to decide what to wear one day and pulled out a dress that he had told me was his favorite," she said. "I remember thinking 'Oh my gosh, I can’t wear this dress, it’s ruined now!' But then I realized that he can’t ruin that for me."

One a part of the country duo Walker McGuire, Johnny McGuire is now embarking on a solo career. He's released his first single as a solo artist "I Can't Even" from his Neon Nights EP.
“’I Can’t Even’ seemed like a natural choice for my solo debut. It’s one that embodies the musical style and lyrics that have influenced my musical journey like Tom Petty’s ‘Don’t Come Around Here No More’ or a bit of Bon Jovi aligning with contemporary Country,” said McGuire in a press release. “It also tackles the universally shared feeling of heartbreak—that gut-wrenching moment we’ve all experienced when you don’t think you’ll be able to go on. We can all look back and remember that feeling. Thankfully, we also remember that when one door closes, another one opens.”
