Becca Bowen Finds Healing After Heartbreak In ‘If I’m Being Honest’ (Review)
Becca Bowen picks herself up and goes out on the town with her new single. “If I’m Being Honest” (co-written with Sam Woods) comes after the heartache has cleared, and you’re left with nothing but an honest heart ready for healing. “So, I think I will go out, downtown / Get drunk, make out / Anything to forget you,” sings Bowen.
Pain might sting her heart around its edges, but she lets the memory of her ex wash from her skin. Instead of wallowing in it, she dolls up and meets her friends for a few drinks. The night is young, and she has all the time in the world.
“You say that I’m crazy / I got a few screws loose / You’ve been counting me out / But the joke’s on you,” she sings, her voice evaporating into a million neons. If we’re being honest, the mid-tempo scorcher makes the summer months even hotter.
“If I’m Being Honest” is the second chapter to “Son of a Gun,” released earlier this year.

From South Carolina, Bowen – known to her fans as “Country Barbie” – issued her debut single “Love It, Leave It” a very short three years ago. She continued releasing music, including “How It All Went Down” and “Glitter,” and competed on Outdoor Channel’s For Love or Likes, ultimately winning the show’s fifth season in 2021.
Bowen’s debut LP, Like You’ve Never Been Loved, arrived last fall and garnered hundreds of thousands of streams. Not too shabby for a career still in its early days. It’s only up from here.
