Tayler Holder Finds Happiness In Heartbreak With ‘Til She’s Gone’ (Review)
Sometimes, a breakup can be a good thing.
With his new song “‘Til She’s Gone,” country rising star Tayler Holder realizes that, perhaps, it all worked out for the better. “Five a.m. in this deer stand, it’s got me thinking / Of all the sh** I ain’t missing,” he sings, point blank. “‘Cause I sure did miss shutting a dive bar down on a Friday night…”
Co-written with Connor McCutcheon and Harrison Hackett, the Keith Urban-like anthem tells a tale about “how even when you go through something as bad as a breakup it can be really good in the sense of realizing how much happier you are outside of that relationship because you didn’t realize how bad it was,” he shared.
Musically, Holder decided to “bring out a red dirt vibe and get moving a little more away from the pop country side of things,” he continued. “Andy [Sheridan] did a great job with that and I feel like I’m really finding my sound in the country music scene.”
With stripping away the pop-country veneer, what’s left is assuredly a more red-dirt shine. “Bet she thinks her goodbye sent me down a lonely road / Something ‘bout her leaving makes me wish it didn’t take this long,” he caterwauls over electric guitars crashing together.

“‘Til She’s Gone” follows his previous single “Time in This Truck,” released earlier this summer. The latter has already snagged more than 800,000 streams. Both cuts sample a forthcoming debut EP, slated for release in the fall.
