#LetTheGirlsPlay Cover: Kenny Chesney, ‘Save It for a Rainy Day’
Few artists sing summer like Kenny Chesney, and with the warm season approaching the five women of Song Suffragettes decided to cut one of his many beachy songs. "Save It for a Rainy Day" is a song about getting over heartbreak, but it's got the same mellow vibe that's become Chesney's signature.
Kalie Shorr, Lena Stone and company capture that spirit with this #LetTheGirlsPlay cover. Shorr begins, and plays guitar before turning the first verse over to Stone. Kassi Ashton begins the chorus as the remaining four girls harmonize with her. Emily Landis and Stone take the second verse before Mignon's big country voice comes in.
Song Suffragettes performs every Monday night at the Listening Room. Each of five artists plays three original songs before coming together for a cover to close the show. Look for them during the 2016 CMA Music Festival as well. They've got two all-#LetTheGirlsPlay artists shows planned, in addition to the Monday night gig.
#LetTheGirlsPlay was created in response to the lack of females having success in country music. It’s something that goes beyond just getting girls back on the radio. Female songwriters are also poorly represented, but last year saw some significant shifting after years of ignoring the problem. Taste of Country is proud to be part of the solution.
