Some have said the Charlie referenced in the song is Charley Pride or Charlie Feathers, but most sources believe it to be Charlie Rich.

Today we have a video premiere from rockabilly/honky-tonk outfit, The Shootouts. "Hurt Heartbroke" is snappy number that'll get you stepping with a longneck in your hand in no time. RIYL: BR549, The Reverend Horton Heat, Carl Perkins.
Lead Singer Ryan Humbert on the song:
“Hurt Heartbroke' is a rowdy rockabilly rave-up; a live-and-learn tale of faithless love and gold-digging deception written by our longtime Shootouts sideman, Al Moss. It was originally performed by a band that he performed with for many years, Hillbilly Idol, from around the Cleveland, OH area. I’ve always loved the song and am glad we took a stab at putting our mark on it. It allowed us to dip our toes in the Rockabilly genre a bit too — which is, of course, the middle sibling between Rock & Roll and Country. It’s also just a blast to sing and play!"

FTM ponders what these famous rock, R&B, rap and country songs would have sounded like if Dallas Davidson or any of his compadres had written them...
Pearl Jam - Even Flow
Gravel road, trucks arrive tires oversized
Oh, bring some hoes, who can make the sugar shake
Better yet, we'll have Miller Lite again
Lite again, Lite again...
Roberta Flack - First Time Ever I Saw Your Face
The first time ever I saw dat ass
I felt my skinny jeans start to rise
And the moon and the stars over my tailgate
Got to watch me get in them thighs
Merle Haggard - Fightin' Side of Me
If you gone mad-dog, step up:
Let these brass knucks be a warnin'.
If you're cock-blockin' on hotties, son,
You bout to meet the fightin' side of me.
Carl Perkins (Elvis Presley) - Blue Suede Shoes
Well, it's one for the honeys,
Two for the shine,
Three for my Chevy,
Past the county line.
But don't you step on my square-toed boots.
You can do anything but lay off of my square-toed boots.
Jay-Z - 99 Problems
99 problems but a hitch ain't one
If you need to pull a trailer, get a Smittybilt son
I got 99 problems but a hitch ain't one
