Georgia's perspective has developed and grown. Her 2015 mixtape was full of high school-oriented female versions of truck songs, with "Pretty Girls" being the only song that fell outside of that category. This song has personality, but also individuality. Country music has taken a bit of a break from the straight bro-country songs, and with that, it allows artists to try different things. This was something different, and it succeeded.
Today, the sub-genre of country music of pop-country has been expanded with the introduction of Kelsea Ballerini and other artists. These artists, including Dan + Shay and Hunter Hayes create pop-country with generally very solid and smart lyrics, but they don't necessarily appeal to traditional fans. But they're appealing to younger fans, and pop fans. This isn't the music winning Grammys, but it's the music that will carry the younger generation into the genre, expanding the scope and reach of country music.
