The Band Perry released their new single “The Good Life.”
“THE GOOD LIFE is a story about the infidelity I experienced. I want you to know that this song was written during a toxic and incredibly difficult time in my life, but I’m singing it to you now with the voice of a woman who has completely regained a strong sense of self, rebuilt her womanhood, and is grateful to have learned so much.
The lyrics in this song are visceral and strong, just as the feelings have been. I feel empowered by them. I hope they empower you to know your value, and if you find yourself in an environment where someone makes you feel disrespected and degraded, I want you to know that you deserve so much more. It’s ok that things don’t go as planned and it’s also ok to not have a new plan yet.
And for those who tell lies, who take advantage of others’ trust and dignity – DO BETTER.
I’m so grateful to be here and to blow out candles celebrating another year in my good life. Thank you for caring about my story and for listening. The song coming out tonight is one I needed to make to remind myself that my life is not defined by one ugly situation, my body is not diminished by one uninterested person, and my self-worth is not determined by anyone else’s words or behavior. Neither is yours.”
