Meghan Linsey isn't afraid to speak her mind. She might be small in stature, but she's huge in voice. So, it isn't surprising that the singer's debut solo single is a sharp-shooting female empowerment anthem, which takes direct aim at every bro-country song currently thumping through the speakers of mainstream terrestrial radio. "Try Hard Than That," the lead-in to her new EP (through a Pledge Music campaign), makes a bold statement about what it means to be a woman and how they should be treated. "It was meant to be a sassy song. I don’t want to say ‘take jabs’ but it’s more about pushing a boy you like on the playground," she shares of the song to NashvilleGab, exclusively, on the set of the song's music video.
Formerly of Steel Magnolia, Linsey has high hopes as she launches her solo career. Admittedly, she says she never had any qualms about releasing such a risky song. "I haven’t really thought about it, to be honest. In fact, when we wrote it, I was like, ‘dang, I feel like this is a single.’ I think you have to be bold anymore to stand out and make a statement, especially for women. You’re not hearing [many] women on country radio. Coming out with something different and shaking stuff up, that’s the goal."
