Country newcomer Tyra Madison will release her brand new single, “Saturdays Are For The Girls” on Friday, (Sept. 27), but she is premiering the audio one day early in this Country Now exclusive.
The feel-good tune, produced by industry veterans Brad Hill and Lee Holland (Brothers Osborne, Maren Morris, Brett Young), has Madison spreading a message of girl power, while backed by electric guitar and an ear-grabbing drumbeat.
“Saturdays are for the girls who wanna get tipsy dancing to Queen B / Living like who run the world / We do, we do, we do / ‘Cuz it’s a Barbie backwoods party / No boys allowed / Sorry, not sorry/ Saturdays are for the girls,” Madison sings with her vibrant set of vocals, making it easy for listeners to want to throw down with some of their best buds.
Although the song plays up being a strong and independent woman, Madison was actually inspired to write it after seeing a post shared on a male-dominant Facebook page called “Barstool Sports.”
“They always say, ‘Saturdays are for the boys,’” the Kentucky-born songstress told Country Now of the page that she follows. “In that moment I was like, ‘No, Saturdays are for the girls!’ Then I decided I had to write about it!”
This isn’t Madison’s first time celebrating female empowerment through music. Previously, she released “Ain’t No Dime,” which reminds women of their worth. “Ain’t No Dime” garnered more than 60,000 streams independently, making it a successful single for the budding entertainer. And, it turns out that “Saturdays Are For The Girls” could have a similar outcome since it has already received positive reviews from the fans.
“’Saturdays Are for the Girls’ has become a crowd favorite during my show,” Madison, who has cited Carrie Underwood and Maren Morris as some of her top influences, beamed. “It’s just a fun and catchy song. There’s no better feeling than someone singing the lyrics you’ve worked so hard on.”
