To Maggie Rose and the song’s writers, Caitlyn Smith, Gordie Sampson and Troy Verges:
Thank you for adding such a positive, powerful female voice to a subject that is so physically womanless. Written for so many men and women, it is nice to see both female singers and songwriters working their way into a mostly male-dominated genre. You’ve made me fall in love with these songs all over again, with these memories, these ideas, these stories, as well as with you. You’ve given a breath of new life to that which people have made a habit (and perhaps even started a career) out of disdain and shown the original intent of what these songs were meant to showcase, and what they mean to you.
If this is what happens when women enter “Bro Country” and the gender collaboration of songwriters end up with more songs like this and we get to hear more voices like Maggie’s, I welcome it. Not only do I welcome it, I applaud it and believe that country music will flourish as a result of it.
