It was 28 years ago that country music was introduced to Trisha Yearwood. Her debut single, “She’s In Love With the Boy” became her first number-one from her self-titled debut album. Since then, she has established herself as one of the premiere voices in country music and she’s showing no signs or interest of slowing down. In fact, her newest single, “Every Girl in This Town” proves she’s just as talented and passionate as ever in releasing great country music that matters.

True to the message of the lyrics, written by Erik Dylan, Connie Harrington, and Caitlyn Smith, the energetic video for “Every Girl in This Town” is a magical flip book of every girl in the world. Set mostly in a warehouse with a canvas photographer’s backdrop, the focus is placed fully on the beautiful likenesses and differences between the girls and women featured in the piece. The video occasionally toggles to footage of women in home and work settings or to Trisha herself going through photographs of “girls” of all ages and we can only presume that some may be of her.
At a time when one of the dominant discussions in the music industry is the overwhelming lack of female representation on the radio, Trisha’s “Every Girl in This Town” is a chest-pounding anthem sharing the message that while women may not be heard through traditional means, their voices are not being silenced. It also sends a message of universality and community over competition.
And, come on, it’s just darn good country music.
