One of country music’s most buzzed about new acts, Tigirlily, just released a brand new song called “My Thang” and it’s about to become your favorite new jam. 

The sister-duo co-wrote “My Thang” alongside fellow country artist and label mate, Walker Hayes. Produced by GRAMMY Award-winner Shane McAnally, and Louis Newman, “My Thang” finds the duo’s Krista and Kendra Slaubaugh embracing anything and everything that life throws their way while keeping a positive outlook. 

“Coffee in my cup Spillin’ on my shirt/ Barely making rent Or killing it at work/ Oh shit or okay (okay)/ It’s gonna be a good day,” they sing on the first verse. 

“My Thang” is Tigirlily’s first release since signing a recording contract with Monument Records. The feel-good track is the follow-up to the duo’s anthem of positivity, “Somebody Does,” which reached the top spot on both the iTunes Country Songs chart and the iTunes All Genres Songs chart upon its release.

“We wrote ‘My Thang’ as a reminder to ourselves that no matter what life throws our way, we’re going to be alright if we just keep “doin’ our thang,” Tigirlily shares. 

“This song is everything we’ve experienced in our lives, especially in the last year. From ‘barely making rent’ to ‘killing it at work,’ from ‘swiping on tinder’ to being ‘swept off our feet,’ from feeling like ‘oh no’ to ‘it’s gonna be a good day.’ Life is supposed to be full of ups and downs, it’s how we learn, so we should just enjoy and keep doing our thang.”

The duo also released a video to accompany the track. Click above to watch.
