I’m noticing a terrific trend right now in country music – and that’s that the subject matter for female artists to sing about has grown beyond the typical love song or breakup song (although there’s nothing wrong with those – and we need them, too!), but there’s a bunch of really great songs from the ladies (or least – bands with female lead singers) with the intention of building confidence and self-assuredness – whether it’s not settling for anything less than happiness in a relationship or just a night out with your best gal pals. So get ready to get inspired – because here are five of them.
Lauren Alaina’s “Road Less Traveled”
Runaway June “Lipstick”
The Band Perry “Comeback Kid”
Kalie Shorr “Fight Like a Girl”
Brooke Eden “Diamonds”
