Not a revolution
August 29, 2014 - Marguerite Lanthier
Two country girls have taken on some of country music’s biggest cliques in their song “Girl in a Country Song.” Maddie & Tae, a teen duo, wrote and recorded the song, which tells it from the perspective of the girl on the tailgate in the bikini and cutoffs, a popular vision in some of today’s country music. According to Wikipedia, the lyrics contain references to Thomas Rhett's “Get Me Some of That,” Chris Young's “Aw Naw,” Blake Shelton's “Boys 'Round Here,” Billy Currington's “Hey Girl,” Jason Aldean's “My Kinda Party” and “Dirt Road Anthem,” and Tyler Farr's “Redneck Crazy.” I recognized the references and thought the song was hilarious. Now of course they are getting backlash from country music stars and the public. Some think they should be leading the charge against country music’s anti-feminist ways. I don’t think they wanted to take on the industry, I think they just wanted to write a funny song the poked fun at some of the obvious cliques.
