Song of the Day Apr 10

April 10, 2024

This month I’m focusing on One Hit Wonders of the 90s.

Today our song is:  Achy Breaky Heart 

Wikipedia tells us this about the song:

Achy Breaky Heart was written by amateur songwriter Don Von Tress from Cypress Inn, Tennessee, in 1990, according to him "just fooling around on the guitar and a drum machine".

The song was initially to be recorded by the Oak Ridge Boys in the early 1990s, but the group decided against recording it after lead singer Duane Allen said that he disliked the words "achy breaky". It was then recorded in 1991 under the title "Don't Tell My Heart" by the Marcy Brothers, although their version changed some lyrics.

Billy Ray Cyrus heard Von Tress's version of the song, and chose to include it on his debut album Some Gave All in 1992.
