this song is one of those songs in that especially annoying genre of fake-inspiring platitude-spewing empowerment anthems that white women love. i listened to this song three times and when i was finished i had the sudden urge to buy a pumpkin spice latte, put on a pair of uggs, and suddenly had a very strong opinion about salads. these types of songs the worst because it's like the audio version of those really lame "inspirational" live, love, laugh picture frames every white mother buys their daughter before they head off to ol' state U for the first time.
there's nothing inspiring at all when you think about what's being said. it doesn't the child to go challenge norms, and defy expectations. it asks the child to dance without providing a soundtrack to do so at all without the assistance of a man. it tells her it wants her to feel small next to the ocean. what kind of empowerment is this? depend on men and feel small. thanks mom. women like this are the reason why trump won. strong women, the ones who did the work and fought to be respected thought that women like this would refuse to vote for someone who bragged about grabbing women's pussies. but they were wrong because there is no sisterhood among white women. they all despise one another and throw each other fake emotional connection using black slang as a means of ridicule.
this is pretty clearly intended to be touching i guess, but it really misses the mark. i feel no emotional connection or resonance with this woman's voice, or the song. the steel guitar is boring as shit. there's nothing interesting in the melody at all, and lee ann womak's voice sounds cold and emotionless for something that's supposed be suffused with meaning and empathy. i heard more emotional range from the woman who reads the announcements at my son's school this morning than in this performance. i can guarantee that this woman is absolutely dreadful in bed. no one who sings with this little emotion would possibly do anything but starfish. i'd make some comment about how she's a butterface and that she's unfortunately passed it along to her offspring but that would be sexist. mister bacon is no sexist. this song is not good, the performance sounds like a rejected wal*mart jingle. yeah she's got DSL but she wouldn't know what to do with the D if it slapped her in the face. 3 'ports out of 10.
