Here at NYCountry Swag, we’ve been waiting patiently for Teddy Robb to release his new song “Tell Me How” to the public. We had the opportunity to hear the 2019 Artist to Watch sing the track back in November when he hosted an intimate evening in Nashville at the Douglas Café with songwriters Ryan Beaver and Heather Morgan.
Unlike his first two singles, “Really Shouldn’t Drink Around You” and “Lead Me On,” “Tell Me How” has a more somber vibe. The singer shares a personal side of himself as the song is about a breakup and how the singer is having a difficult time moving on. Like anyone dealing with heartbreak, he is wondering where his ex is now and playing back what happened for the relationship to end.
“Tell me you’re okay / Tell me you made it through / Tell me you’re over me / You don’t think about me and you / Tell me you can sleep at night / Tell me your happy now / Tell me you’ve moved on / Then tell me how”
Robb then goes into how he has tried to get over the breakup which included going to church, drinking, going on a date, and going to Mexico. These coping mechanisms are all very relatable, who hasn’t wanted to get away from the real world or try and quickly move on after the end of a relationship?
Overall, the singer-songwriter hopes that his ex is doing better off than he is and if they can share their tips, as he hasn’t figured out just quite how to let go. Whether or not the track is about Robb or a friend, the honest lyrics tug at the heartstrings and teaches us that not everyone gets over a breakup right away and that’s just fine.
“Tell Me How” is now available everywhere you buy or stream music. Take a listen below and check out more new recently released music here on our ‘New Country Music’ playlist. Be sure to give the playlist a follow for your weekly new country music fix.
