In a word, “Wow.” LOVE the track: It pulses like a heartbeat. Michelle aches exquisitely in her lead vocal. The chorus has monstrous hooks. This thing has the wings of a mighty angel.”
—Robert K. Oermann, MusicRow

Just in time for the sizzlin’ dog-days of summer Blue Steel Records duo Burns & Poe is back with a soulful mid-tempo about a heart-on-the-mend, served with breezy harmonies. “How Long Is Long Enough” was co-penned by Keith Burns and Frankie Golden, produced by Mark Oliverius and will appear on the duo’s upcoming self-titled album. It has already made a huge first week debut at No. 58 on MusicRow’s CountryBreakout Chart.

“For every song I’ve written I think the lyrics need to speak for themselves,” says Burns. “When Michelle and I were in the studio, we agreed the music had to be stripped down to bare bones, plain and simple, to showcase how vulnerable and numb the character is. It’s our version of Eric Carmen’s ‘All By Myself’.”

Poe agrees, saying, “She’s at a place where we’ve all been at one point or another. After ending a relationship you want to be able to move on with your life, but sometimes it takes more time than you’d hope. The heart takes time to feel; the heart takes time to heal. The lyric, ‘Tell me when does a heart give up?’ sums up the song perfectly. When can I give in, let go and get on with my life? Who hasn’t felt that way?”
