In Levi Hummon’s newly-released track, “Paying For It,” this singer-songwriter melds a bluesy, pop-country groove with lyrics shot through with realism, conveying that oftentimes the aftermath of a fizzled romance can be as costly as a relationship itself.
Joining Hummon on the new single is “Fancy Like” hitmaker Walker Hayes (courtesy of Monument Records), also a co-writer on the track alongside Hummon and writer/producer Eric Arjes.
“I’m so excited to partner up with Walker on a song,” Hummon says. “I’ve been a fan of his for a long time and this is actually the first song we ever wrote together. I brought in the title and he really did his Walker thing to it. I think this song is really special and I’m excited for the world to hear it. Also, big shout out to my producer Eric Arjes for killin’ it on this one.”
Nashville native and Reservoir-signed writer Hummon was raised in Music City’s songwriting community, and like many gifted songwriters, he’s attuned to the everyday details that make for a solid song idea. Though “Paying For It” includes withering lines such as “feels like we got divorced and I had a real cheap lawyer,” the song actually finds its origin in a comment from Hummon’s girlfriend.
“The idea behind the song is actually based on a funny conversation with my girlfriend,” Hummon shares. “She chipped her tooth the day I was heading to my co-write and said to ‘go write a song that can pay for this’… and the title paying for it hit me. I obviously turned it into a different story, but that title is definitely because of her.”
“Paying For It” releases today via F2 Entertainment/The Orchard and is available on all digital streaming platforms. The song follows the Spring release of Hummon’s two-part 36/86 project.
