Country singer/songwriter Kaitlyn Baker pines for a lost lover in her painfully beautiful ballad “To Pieces.” At only 21 years old, Baker has captured the pain of a heartbroken woman twice her age. Like most songwriters, Baker writes from experience. In this case, “To Pieces” was inspired by a real breakup.
I had been in relationship with someone for quite a while,” she said. “When we parted ways, I was heartbroken. I called my friend, Janet Miller, who is a great songwriter. She was encouraging and we poured our hearts into this song. It really helped me get over a tough time.”
Baker and Miller were helped by fellow songwriter J. Scott Arnold, who also produced the song. An accompanying music video, directed by Brian Harstine of Liquid Crystal Productions in Nashville, follows Baker as she walks through woods, stopping at a lake as a gentle rain begins to fall.
