So, this happened. Yep. I squeed through tears. It’s catchy, and I was singing along before it even ended the first time. It’s identified as a country song, but I choose to see it as Sheryl Crow Rock. Yep, it’s a genre. She has country and rock roots and combines them with beautiful results. As a student of both Stevie Nicks and Sheryl Crow, I automatically know the song includes life lessons. Bonus.
I’ve never heard of Maren Morris, but they have a lovely voice. Like if Dolly Parton and Kristen Chenoweth had a baby, (not sure if we’re there yet scientifically, but humor me, please.) Add to that Stevie Nicks lending her range, edge, and harmonizing skills, and Sheryl Crow being herself, and you’ll see why I’m having one of those days that are so joyful, I can’t help but thank the universe.
The song is empowering to me. It’s saying don’t put snarky expectations on how I will react to a breakup. Just because it would make you feel better is no reason to assume I’m going to fall apart over you. I know how to work with my feelings, and fluidly move on to whatever comes next. In heels. (No bitch for emphasis necessary because if the shoe fits, it’s implied. So ninja.) 😂 I love songs that celebrate healthy thinking. I’m off to listen on repeat. I can’t wait for the video! ✌🏽💜
p.s. My janky foot is almost healed enough for open hi-hatting. Yay, body!
