This 1996 Hit Single of Paul Brandt Boosted His Career 1

The Song That Made Brandt Famous

“My Heart Has a History” is the name of the single that marked Paul Brandt’s first success in country music. His first single, the tune reached No.1 on the US Billboard Hot Country Songs chart in 1996. Such achievement allowed him to follow the steps of the late Hank Snow whose stint as a Canadian country music singer ruling the country music charts ended in 1974. Landing on the topmost spot of the chart, the song also pushed the singer to international success. Of course, the track was also a number one hit in his home country. The single’s album Calm Before the Storm received a Gold certification from the RIAA in 1997. Brandt’s efforts in collaborating with experienced songwriters to work on the album paid off with it becoming Gold certified. That is on top of the debut album’s first single reaching No. 1 on the charts. The singer co-wrote the song with Mark D. Sanders.

A History of Letting Go

A love professed to be pure and real but not for keep due to the narrator’s history of hurting is the song’s central theme. The man knew he’s found true love but was quite worried that such won’t work considering his dreadful past. But he is sincere enough in making her become aware of it before getting too close to him. What about you, do you have the same history as our narrator here does? If so, would you be willing to tell your supposed lover about it? We would be pleased to know your thoughts folks! Meanwhile, let us lend our ears to this song that brought Brandt’s name to the top of the charts.
