See RaeLynn Perform ‘God Made Girls’ on the Iconic Grand Ole Opry [Exclusive Premiere]
It just keeps getting better and better for country newcomer RaeLynn. The 20-year-old singer has released a great single in 'God Made Girls,' and she recently got to perform the song during her debut on the hallowed stage of the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville.
The bubbly singer-songwriter first came to public attention by competing on the second season of 'The Voice.' She was eliminated in the third week, but she moved to Nashville determined to get a record deal, and it worked. RaeLynn -- a friend of Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton -- was eventually picked up by Republic Nashville.
She has co-written the songs for her upcoming debut project with some of the top writers in Nashville, including Nicolle Galyon, Liz Rose and Lori McKenna, her co-writers on 'God Made Girls.'
“I think that’s why it is the song it is,” RaeLynn explains. “You have me, who I’m 20, Nicolle’s 30, Lori’s in her 40s and Liz is in her 50s. You have all these different women and all these different perspectives of being a girl in this world and I think that’s why so many different women can relate to it. ‘Cause you have, you know, Liz who’s gone through things that I haven’t gone through, and you have Lori and even Nicolle … I think that’s one of the reasons why it’s the song it is.”
The lyric delves into all the different ways that the presence of a woman can steer a man straight: “Something that can wake him up and call his bluff and drag his butt to church / Something that is hard to handle, something fragile to hold him when he hurts / So God made girls.”
If RaeLynn was nervous for her Opry debut, she didn't let it show. Clad in a simple black dress and red heels, she gave a confident performance that belied her youth, delivering the lyric with a unique twang that sets her apart from other young female artists.
