I’ve discussed the lack of inclusivity of women in country music before. Little Big Town is one of my favorite country music acts. They are so talented, and they’ve never been a group of people to shy away from addressing issues that actually hold weight.
I need you to stop everything you’re doing and listen to their new song, The Daughters.
The Daughters is their latest single and deserves to be a song that is heard all over the radio, especially country music radio. A woman is more than a mother. A woman is more than someone who cleans. A woman is more than someone who needs to dress up “nice”. A woman is more than a trophy. A woman is a person who may have a dream. A woman is a person who deserves a chance to achieve that dream. I mean, how powerful is this line: “I’m still looking for a god for the daughters…”
Thank you for bringing this to the center stage at the American Country Music (ACM) Awards tonight, Little Big Town. Listen up, people!
