NBC’s hit series This is Us takes the top spot for the most popular song on Tunefind last week for the second week in a row. This song comes from Nashville based singer songwriter, Jill Andrews. Last weeks episode brings us one week closer to the show’s series finale, which is set to air on May 24th.
‘Only Love Can Break Your Heart’ eases into the emotionally charged scene, quietly. At first all that is heard behind the characters dialogue is the piano instrumental opening of the song. Andrews’ vocals hit the ear just as softly with lyrics supporting the emotional exchange between characters.
