He just got a Grammy nomination for his Silk City song “Electricity,” but Mark Ronson isn’t taking any breaks. He’s got a bit hit with Miley Cyrus in “Nothing Breaks Like a Heart,” a tune that taps into the pop singer’s deep country roots while hitting all the notes of a contemporary radio gem, but now, we get a little cozier with its emotional undertones with a powerful acoustic rendition the pair have shared to YouTube.
It’s all waterfall guitar notes and wistful strings as Cyrus’ voice rings like a warning bell. You can almost smell the campfire burning on Western fields and see the stars peeking out of the sunset. Love may be lost, but it’s also found in the darkening melodies.
“Nothing Breaks Like a Heart” currently sits at No. 56 on the Hot 100. Listen to the stirring acoustic version below.
