Its no different when it comes to writing my Harlequin SYTYCW 2012 entry, Heartbreak Ranch. Music feeds my soul, so its a natural fit for me to put music and writing together. I often include song or lyric references in my writing. As Graysen and Colt came to life in my mind and the pages of my romance novel, I was drawn to certain songs and a playlist was born.
Heartbreak Ranch Playlist Part I:
A Country Boy Can Survive - Hank Williams Jr. - Graysen's father sings along.
Save a Horse(Ride a Cowboy) - Big N Rich - Graysen discovers something more interesting in the corral at the ranch
Lookin' For Love - Johnny Lee - Carson hums a little tune on the way home from the Lodge.
Drunk on You - Luke Bryan - Colt listens to this song during a sleepless night
Eight Second Ride - Jake Owen - Colt takes Graysen for a riding lesson
I Don't Want This Night To End - Luke Bryan
I May Hate Myself in the Morning - Lee Ann Womack Graysen wrestles with what her mind and heart want.
Hell on the Heart - Eric Church - Colt thinking about Graysen
Come a Little Closer - Dierks Bentley - Graysen visits Colt
