"You Killed Romeo" Debuts On Y&R Written and Performed by Steve Burton and Jonathan Jackson! – Watch the Montage & Hear The Song!



What a wonderful surprise today for fans of The Young and the Restless Steve Burton (Dylan) and Nashville star Jonathan Jackson (Avery).  The two talented men who soap fans first loved for their roles on General Hospital collaborated on a new song that was heard in the ending montage on today’s episode of Y&R!   The song, You Killed Romeo will be available for download tomorrow on iTunes, so you can get your copy for your own private play list!

Burton spoke to Soap Opera Digest about how it all came out,  “I always had this idea for a song called ‘You Killed Romeo.’ Then I started going through this story at work and it inspired me to sit down and write lyrics again. I don’t have any musical background. I can’t put melodies together or compose music, but my family and Jonathan’s family have been hanging out since he lives here, and I asked Jonathan, ‘I have these lyrics. Do you think you can take a look at them and maybe see if you could write some music for them?’ And he said, ‘Yeah. I’ve never done that before. I’ve never taken someone else’s words and composed music and made it a song.’ I emailed him the lyrics and within a week-and-a-half, he’s like, ‘I’ve got something rough. Why don’t you take a listen.’ So, I’m at his house, he played it on the piano and I’m like, ‘Dude, this is unbelievable. You are amazing!”‘


When Steve and Jonathan went into record it, it is the beautiful voice of Jonathan Jackson as the lead vocalist, with background vocals by Burton.  Next, when Burton approached Y&R about using the song, it was a go, because as you will see in the montage from today’s episode, the tune  worked perfectly for the storylines and fallout for Chelsea/Adam/Dylan and Avery and Nick!

Watch the montage and listen to the song after the jump!  Let us know what you thought of it!  Will you be purchasing your copy on iTunes on Tuesday?

This song and the video while it was playing , touched me so much. I searched till I found who wrote and who sung it. I am amazed ! WOW. As soon as it is available I am buying it. I think it’s got to be one of my top songs now. I love it…so sad to see these two guys that play my favorites being so sad…the song said it all…………


Beautiful will purchase it on itunes tomorrow!

Watched the episode on Friday…beautiful song guys,beautiful !!
Didn’t even know it was the two of you.

Absolutely Love it can’t wait to buy it !!

Beautiful song

I loved the song and it was so perfect for the scenes playing during its debut!And then to read Steve wrote it!WOW.Just wonderful and moving.

Awesome. I love it!

Impressive as all hell and I am really particular about music. JJ has a beautiful voice and Burton really wrote a beautiful song. Burton is also pulling in an amazingly compelling performance as the heart broken, world weary vet. It’s clear he did a good thing leaving GH,

I cried

cried a lot, very moving fit it perfectly

what a beautiful song! Best song I have heard in a While! Congratulations Steve and Johnathan what a Hit!

What a beautiful song. The words are perfect. I will definitely down load the song. Very powerful!

A song that touches your heart fantastic job both of you,will fly off iTunes tomorrow.

The song is nice enough but I really wished I felt something for these characters none of them have any chemistry with each other. I mean wasn’t Nick married last year at this time to Phyllis now he is madly in love with Avery. Huh??? Sharon going around crazy eyed for someone who dropped her after their daughter died. Chelsea the con artist Adam the baby snatcher, baby killer and then their is Dudley Do Right/Dylan. Sad!

Just beautiful….a perfect song for the goings on at Y&R today.

That is such a beautiful song. Those words written by Steve Burton are so heartfelt and beautiful. Then you have the wonderful arrangement and signing by Jonathan Jackson to complete the song. I’m so impressed and will definitely buy the gem.

The song is OK but too downbeat to keep, so a good fit with Y&R which is a total downbeat these days YAWNNNNN!

There are dull uneventful common breakups I saw coming a mile away and the other story, Adam, Jack, Victor fighting over NE another on going YAWNNN..
And the Nikki baby story has been dull and a bit stupid,
ohh well what can ya do lol ..
the song will not help Y&R but it was not bad.

This is epic!!! What a painfully emotional, yet lyrical song, and that voice of JJ omg is so beautiful!!! Great lyrics and kudos to Steve Burton, and awesome vocalist(I follow him on Nashville)…. headed for the bigtime….fast!! This left me speechless …….reminded me of my son’s fiancée breaking up with him….words are fitting. Truly gifted people brought us this song!

LOVE this song!! Steve is absolutely amazing, would never had guessed it was him. Such talent. 🙂

WOW… loved it!!! It was great with the scenes and it was beautiful!!! Congratulations Steve and Jonathan!!! Thanks Michael for sharing!!! Y&R made terrific decision in airing this!!! Hope it sells well!

LOVED the song! It was absolutely beautiful.

Wow! Steve Burton is hott n so is this song! Great great song guys! Jonathan Jackson is amazing! Thanx can’t wait to download! N hope to hear it on the radio asap!

Yes, will download from Itues on Tuesday. Great song.

As soon as I heard 1/2 of song I went straight to I-tunes! Glad I found out here it will be available tomorrow – it is fantastic!!!!!

Love it. Will definitely buy it. Y&R had another song on quite a while back, “When the Wind Blows” (I think that was the name). Would love to purchase that but can’t find it anywhere. Love Dylan and Avery together, as well as Adam and Chelsea.

No amount of self promotion nor JFP over propping could ever make me watch Steve Burton.

Y&R died when JFP threw out superb actors for this one.
Now Y&R is gone and Burton’s self promotion and your promotion of him does not make him interesting

While the song is good, I also can’t get past the fact that Phelps keeps Burton on that pedestal. It’s very unusual.

I wonder what others on the show are thinking of yet another example of what is obvious favoritism to an actor that’s only been on the show for 9 months.

So glaring. So odd.

The other actors except for those who have decided which side their bread is buttered on are holding their nose and grinning and bearing it oh how I wish my beloved Terry Lester/original Jack was still alive to hear what he would say would be music to my ears.

I love the song but cant stand Burton on Y&R. I used to be a big fan of his but this role does absolutely nothing for me needs to go elsewhere. Soap producers need to realize fans feel strongly about long term characters and some changes are for the worst. I used to watch Y&R now just stick to GH things were better with old casting. JJ has a wonderful voice and seems to always land a good role where ever he goes. Burton is a wonderful actor and obviously talented writer but go back to GH or maybe Nashville. Dylan is to boring!

I loved the song when I heard it in today’s episode and to know that these two very talented (and gorgeous) men are responsible for it make me like it even more! Two of my favorite shows!

ummm, not impress!


I love it! Didnt even know it was by them. Definitely will be ordering it.

I love Steve and JJ. Beautiful song and vocals all around!

I LOVE THIS SONG…IT IS BEAUTIFUL!!! It really touches the heart. As soon as I heard it I began searching to find the exact name and who made it!!! I will definitely be purchasing as soon as it is available!! THANK YOU STEVE BURTON (DYLAN :-)), I LOVE THIS SONG AND YOU!!!

Beautiful song!

What an emotional heart jerking tune. Song is incredible.

They really should have just done a remix of the Monster Mash, since the performers – and the show –

are a graveyard smash.

Sorry, Steve Burton Phelps and J. Jackson are in the Baby Jane Hudson category of talent.


I absolutely loved this song as soon as I heard it! I searched for it right away and I’ve already downloaded it from iTunes. What makes it even more special is that Steve Burton wrote it and then got to sing backup vocals and that they played it on his show, the Young and the restless. Great job!

The song IS SO BEAUTIFUL. Was watching Y&R only as white noise today; however, that song came on and perked up my musical ears. Want to use that song at our church – Jesus (Romeo) and all the Juliets. This secular song has such a great crossover. Can hardly wait to get their CD when available!

Great music, great singing, great lyrics – all in all GREAT! Keep on doing it!

What an awesome song, it’s a #1 hit!!!! So touching and beautiful! Have to have it! Saw it today on Y&R and couldn’t wait to see who it was by. Steven & Jonathan you need to write more songs together!

That song is so,so awesome and an excellent choice appropiate for where and when it was played. WAY TO GO GUYS. Keep doing what you’re doing. Luv ya’.

I had no idea Steve and Jonathan wrote and sang this. Excellent job guys!! I don’t have iTunes but I might download it now. GH lost some real talented actors there.

I liked Steve on GH and I like him on YR. He has done a good job portraying a war vet. Th only complaint I have is Victor. For God sake write him a new line for him saying ” I don’t give a damn” He is a nasty bully and why do they make Nikki keep marrying him. He’s a creep.
Don’t blame the actors for the story lines, blame the writers for some of the stupid stories.

Hauntingly beautiful. Gave me chills.

Loved it! I had know idea it was sung by Steve Burton and Jonathan Jackson. The montage was beautiful.

Listened to the song yesterday and searched today for it. As I was listening to the beautiful song I was watching my husband sleep. He has a terminal brain tumor. These lyrics will touch so many people in so many ways. Thank you to Steve and Jonathan for this heart felt song.

Amazing song. Downloaded and playing. Very haunting melody and exquisite lyrics.

I had no clue this was coming, much to my surprise, and you talk about crying my eyes out, Steve..Steve..Steve..Burton, if I could love you more as an actor(you hottie)you simply amazed me more! So glad you left GH! Now I want MORE of MM as well.

Great song, I purchased it on ITunes today and so did my friends! Jonathan, kudos to you as well, job well done! I see this going far! Thank you!

I’m sooo impressed with the talent of Steve Burton and Jonathon Jackson. The two of you are amazing! I loved your online/bromance chemistry on GH, and now musically, you are both off the charts! Keep doing what you’re doing! We LUV you both!

BEAUTIFUL!!! When I heard this song on the Y&R, I just had to try to find I, and I did, and already purchased it..

You guys, did a great job of musical collaboration, and it was GREAT!!! Hope the song goes far and touches a lot of hearts!
Thank you both for giving the world such a beautiful song.

This song is Amazing. You both are very talented! It was very fitting to the storyline, it couldn’t have been more perfect. Hope it makes it to number 1! I totally love Dylan on Y&R. This song just shows that you are truly the Tender Hearted guy you play on the show. Keep up the Fabulous job!

I so would love to have the lyrics /words for this song. My daughter is in a pageant and I so would love for her to sing this as her state talent. Beautiful. What an amazing job and so emotional.

Breaking News

Ex-Nashville and GL’s Hayden Panettiere’s Boyfriend Arrested After Allegedly Punching Her

More upsetting news involving former ABC and CMT’s Nashville star (Ex-Juliette Barnes), Hayden Panettiere.  According to various reports, the actress was punched by her boyfriend Brian Hickerson with a closed fist in an incident that occurred in Wyoming, over the Valentine’s Day weekend.  He was arrested around 2:30am on February 14th.

According to TMZ: the police report said that Hayden revealed that she and Brian were in their bedroom when he started throwing her around and punched her.  The Teton County Sheriff’s Office was notified of a disturbance at a private residence. That caller said an intoxicated male was locked out of the home because he punched his girlfriend in the face.

Pantierre’s face was red and swollen, and she also had a scrape and swelling on her left hand; which she believed came from Hickerson’s watch during the altercation.  Deputies then decided to book Hickerson for domestic battery. He was also hit with a second charge of interfering with a police officer for allegedly refusing to identify himself.

Things looked like they had taken a turn for the better before the incident, noting that the couple moved past another altercation previously from 2019.  That case was dismissed, although he has left red marks on Pantierre’s body, because they could not find a “material witness”.

Hayden and Brian have been dating since 2018.  Daytime fans remember first seeing Hayden as a young Lizzie Spaulding on Guiding Light.  She played Juliette on Nashville from 2012-2018.

So what do you think about the latest incident involving Hayden? Comment below.
