KENNY CHESNEY has noticed the way women have been portrayed in “bro-country” songs, and he doesn’t like it. He says, quote, “In the last several years, a lot of songs about women have been written in an objectifying way.
“If you didn’t wear cut-off jeans or a bikini top, or sit on a tailgate and drink, then you really weren’t worthy, you didn’t really add up.” Instead of just complaining about it, Kenny got to work and wrote a song called “Wild Child”.
It’s kind of a love story to the real women he’s known. He says, quote, “All the women that have been in my life, in my family or that I fell in love with . . . they all had this idea of the ‘wild child’ in them, and I thought about all of them when I was writing the song.”
According to Kenny, a “wild child” doesn’t HAVE to conform: Quote, “The song is about telling some girl out there who’s got dreams, that’s a free spirit, who’s smart and interesting, that she has a chance. That she is worthy.
“She doesn’t have to be this one thing that’s been sung about over and over again recently. And I’m proud of that, that we wrote a song that lifts up a woman in that way.”
“Wild Child” is on his album “The Great Revival”, which is out September 23rd.
Does COLE SWINDELL end up with the girl at the very end of his “Hope You Get Lonely Tonight“ video? Um, of course.________________________________________________________________________________________________

RANDY TRAVIS’ hometown of Marshville, North Carolina has removed his name from all their welcome signs, and replaced it with a sign that only has an illustration of a train. But they insist it’s not personal. A city official said, quote, “It’s nice, it’s dignified, and it gets the job done. There was no disrespect to Randy Travis. It looks more like your traditional welcome sign.”
