Country music singer-songwriter Devon Beck is releasing her new single “Homewrecker” today. “Homewrecker” follows Beck’s previously released songs, “Say To You” and “Mirrors,” featured by Apple Music’s “The Ward Guenther Show” and country music artist Jimmie Allen, who named Beck an artist to watch on his Instagram New Artist Showcase. “Homewrecker” is Beck’s most personal song to date and highlights her impressive songwriting skills and soulful delivery. In celebration of her song, Devon performed at Whiskey Jam last night (8/25).
“‘Homewrecker’ is about my own personal experience and about two people drawn to one another, but never single at the same time. I love the twist in the lyrics because it isn’t actually what you think it’s going to be about,” said Beck.

Beck fills us in on the background of “Homewrecker.”
Tell us about your new music.
My single “Homewrecker” is a song about being drawn to someone who’s in a relationship and trying to respect the relationship while you wonder, “what if?”
I wrote this song about someone I’ve known my whole life. I had started with another idea but came across the word “Homewrecker,” and it stuck. Normally, when I go to write a song, I start with an idea or phrase that sticks, and build the rest around it. Tyler Thompson produced this track. We wanted to go with a retro-vibe!
Is there a particular lyric that speaks to you?
The lyric that sticks out to me is “worrying I was the spark that would send the house up in flames.” Referencing, never wanting to ruin someone’s relationship, and keeping the “what if” theme.
What do you hope fans/listeners take away with them when they listen to your music?
I hope that they can identify and relate to any of my music. I always write from experience and try to be as real as I can be.
