Girl In A Country Song



If I could describe what country music is about in 3 words, I'd say: girls, beer, and trucks.

For all of high school (who am I kidding, even today) I was in love with Luke Bryan. Attractive, can sing, and man, can that guy shake it. He was hot. So I obsessively listened to all of his music, watched all of his music videos, and even saw him live (BEST. NIGHT. EVER.).

But as my all-girls high school would have it, I've been a lot more tuned in to the sexist ways of today's society. And this video is awesome for pointing it out in country music. It directly calls out my man Luke and his buddy Jason Aldean, but does so in a lighthearted way.

Basically, these girls don't want to see the objectification that's in country music anymore. In a genre of girls who are expected shake it or go down till the sun comes up, Maddie & Tae say they don't want to be your tan little thing or be expected to wear skimpy clothes, and they're so right. Why on earth should they?

Props to Maddie & Tae. What a great start to their career, am I right?!
