We used to get a little respect Now we’re lucky if we even get To climb up in your truck, keep our mouths shut and ride along Down some old dirt road we don’t even wanna be on And be the girl in a country song
"Girl in a Country Song" slams the misogyny that’s overwhelmed the genre by throwing a ‘role-reversal’ switch that shoves men into tiny shorts and bikini tops.
This song is SO IMPORTANT to women who love country and who are in the industry. It’s such a fuck you to the misogyny that exists in some country (definitely not all. I mean I LOVE me some country music. But this kicks ass.) Contrary to “God Made Girls” (which I can’t lie, is a catchy song, but definitely draws a huge, blatant gender role for women), this song gets so REAL about it. I love it.
