Country Songs about Breaking Up & Lost Love

A collection of country songs about breaking up and love lost from multiple perspectives; the guys, the girls, sad about it, happy to move on and more!

Emotionally Charged Country Breakup Songs about Love Lost that Can Make You Laugh, Cry or Inspire You to Move On

If your heart is broken, or you’re looking for a song for a friend who’s suffered a tough breakup, here you’ll find songs about lost love that fall into three areas; Glad it’s Over, Painful Loss, and Moving On.

Since every break-up is different, and it’s a process to get through, it’s almost like grieving the loss of someone who has passed away…you have to go through it, one step at a time, one day at a time. No matter the reason for the split, It’s usually never easy.

Here’s a growing song list of breakup and love lost country songs; sort within each heading if you need to.

Several of the Songs in the Chart, Described Here:

Whose Bed Have Your Boots Been Under, by Shania Twain

This one is for the guy who has been found out. She knows what you’ve been up to; the gig is up. Don’t be calling her for company when you’re lonely, just head over to your cheating gal; So next time you’re lonely – It ends with the final kiss-off, ‘Don’t call on me, Try the operator, maybe she’ll be free.’

How Do You Like Me Now, by Toby Keith

This is the ideal song for the guy who couldn’t get the girl in high school but then makes it big, comes back to his school and town to ask the girl, ‘how do you like me now.’ The sarcastic tone makes it entertaining, especially when the ‘girl’ who chooses ‘the popular guy’ is now the unhappy one.

Before He Cheats, by Carrie Underwood

I’m sure most people know all about this revenge break-up song by now! ‘I dug my key into the side of his pretty little souped-up four-wheel drive’….yep, maybe next time, he’ll think before he cheats. Unfortunately, or fortunately, depending upon your perspective, a few women can relate to this song!

Baggage Claim, by Miranda Lambert

I love the lyrics to this song!…’ She’s fed up of draggin’ around his sensitive ego, making sure that his bags arrive on time for the dog and pony show’… She’s had enough of his cheating and tells him to ‘go ahead and take that business trip with that sweet little habit that he can’t kick.’ The music and lyrics have you routing for her! It makes you want to help her with his baggage.

When God Fearin’ Women Get the Blues, by Martina McBride

This fun video and song is about when a fine southern woman snaps when she finds out her man’s been cheating. The video is done up as a news story presenting this woman as ‘wanted’ ….’I got a mustang it’ll do 80; you don’t have to be my baby; I’ve stirred my last batch of gravy’. If you’re looking for a ‘lot of snark and sauce,’ this is the song.

Like We Never Loved at All, by Faith Hill and Tim McGraw

This beautiful and heartbreaking duet by Faith Hill and Tim McGraw sings about the rise and fall of a couple. She hears he’s doing fine, and she wonders, …does he even think of her…it’s painful to listen to with words like, ‘did you forget the magic, did you forget the passion.’

Tonight I Wanna Cry, by Keith Urban

This sad and beautiful song is about a guy who lost the woman he loves. He wasn’t the kind of man to open up and express himself, but now that she’s gone, tonight he wants to cry, alone, suffering from the heartache of missing her. It’s brutally difficult to listen to, especially when it’s a man hurting this way.

 A Little Bit Stronger, by Sara Evans

This song is about moving forward; however, it reflects upon the pain as the wound is still fresh. The break up in this song has been about one week, so although she’s getting stronger, she’s only inching forward, day by day, minute by minute. She’s getting stronger, slowly…but she feels she’s moving forward.

Bring on the Rain, by Jo Dee Messina

This song is about being brave enough to face the pain coming your way. You know it will hurt you, but you’re willing to go through the hard times to get through to the light that waits for you on the other side of pain. It’s a beautiful, soft song that expresses a level of bravery.
