The song comes from her awesome 2022 album Raised, and is easily one of the best from the tracklist… it has such a ’90s throwback sound, and her sassy delivery and funny lyrics are impossible not to love.
A co-write with Bryan Simpson and Ryan Tyndell, Hailey says the inspiration for the song and video came from her real life experiences growing up in Iowa:
“I love the girl-next-door nature of it and it’s quirky language. The music video was directed by Harper Smith and was inspired by my old high school ‘Cow Pie High’… the city kids called it that because it was the school that all the country farm kids went to.
I actually was the homecoming queen my senior year so Harper and I thought it would be fun to muse on that for this video.”
It’s great to see Hailey getting some national attention like this, and I have a feeling it certainly won’t be her last big TV gig.
