Country music isn’t exactly known for having a very sophisticated take on gender roles — to the extent that the term “bro-country” is actually a thing. Really, Google it.
And after you throw up a little in your mouth, take a look at what happens when the roles are reversed (literally) in a video by 18-year-old up-and-coming duo Maddie & Tae for their song “Girl In a Country Song.”
We can certainly get behind the song’s core message, a decisively anti bro-country platform:
I hear you over there on your tailgate whistlin’
Sayin’ “Hey girl,” but you know I ain’t listenin’
Cause I got a name and to you it ain’t
pretty little thing, honey or baby
It’s driving me red red red red red red redneck crazy
The video is posted below, but to spare you the act of watching/listening to it, we grabbed all the fun parts. We shouldn’t all have to have it stuck in our heads today.
Here’s the video:
