Chris Colston Paints The Perfect Picture Of Small Town Breakups With New Single, “Hate Me In My Hometown”

Jason Myers

If you grew up in a small town, you know everybody has nothing else to do besides talk about everything under the moon.

With that being said, rising Texas country star Chris Colston paints the perfect picture of how a mutual breakup story can be skewed through a web of lies, as word breaks out across town, with his brand new single, “Hate Me in My Hometown.”

Written by Colston, Troy Cartwright, and Jeb Gipson, and produced by Brandon Hood, the song brings a relatable message to all the small towners out there, where everybody knows everybody and everything.

Colston weighed in on the new single:

“I grew up in a small town where everyone knows everything about you, whether that be good or bad. Relationships could be easy and hard at the same time in a place like that.

No one ever gets the full story right of what happened; they just automatically assume you’re the bad guy once you and that other person split up, which is awful.

This song is for all the people that have gone through that.”

Needless to say, the song hits home for Colston, and you can hear the authenticity speak volumes in the lyrics.
