J. Michael Harter, ‘Holy Cowgirl’ [Listen]
With his first single as a solo act, J. Michael Harter (of sibling act the Harters) is showing fans that he's changing things up a bit -- and it's gonna be fun. 'Holy Cowgirl' has lighthearted lyrics, heavy guitars and an irresistibly danceable vibe, all of which create a sound that's a far cry from the ballad-inspired music he performed with his brother and sister. Now it's his turn to shine -- and he's bringing the party.
Written by Harter and his friends on a songwriting retreat in Alaska, 'Holy Cowgirl' is an upbeat, fun-loving song that seems tailor-made for a night out on the town. And the lyrics are all about those girls who will be out having that night on the town ... making all those cowboys swoon.
"Oh no here we go / You're lookin' like you're ready to rodeo / Dressed up to throw down / Out on the dance floor spinnin' around / The boys been checkin' you out all night / Looks like they're in for a hell of a fight."
With an infectious guitar hook and a heavy backbeat, 'Holy Cowgirl' is the perfect song to get fans out of their seats and onto the dance floor. Harter's voice sounds a bit like Jerrod Niemann, with just the right mix of hard rock and country twang that listeners are loving lately, and while 'Holy Cowgirl' isn't terribly inventive lyrically or sonically, it's definitely a catchy song that will fit well with country radio and have fans dancing all over town.
Why Fans Will Love It: 'Holy Cowgirl' is an uptempo party song that is perfect for line-dancing at the honky-tonks and getting rowdy with your friends.
Key Lyrics: "Holy cow, girl / Where you been all my life / Holy cow girl / You're doin' everything right / Rockin' them jeans yeah, ya nothin like I've even seen / Struttin' round like a cowboy dream / Holy cow, girl."
Did You Know? If you think the original version of 'Holy Cowgirl' is fun, just wait until you hear the EDM version! Harter has also released a dance remix of the song complete with a heavy drum and electronic beat. This song will make you dance in the honky-tonks and the dance clubs!
