Written by Adam James, Greylan James and Mikey Reaves, "Burns Like Her" depicts the sensation of wanting someone so much it hurts, and is the latest release off his upcoming 2024 album.

Lyrics include:}

"For a kid that grew up singing the late, great Keith Whitley's 'Living Like There's No Tomorrow,' if I'm gonna sing about pain, then the lyrics gotta put you right there with me. It's everything I love about country music: storytelling, visuals, a two-stepping tempo with an intro that invites you to come on in, regardless of the burn."
