And although, as Collins points out so beautifully in the song, "it's not that I'm not good enough," country radio still won't consistently play women. Previously cut by co-writer Stovall for her band's new project, Heartbreak, this song calls on one of the most influential women in country music in a delightfully country way. If you want to change country music, I think the best way is to stay true to yourself as an artist, and put out better country music than any artist on country radio. And Collins did that in this track.
The lyric video continues on the 'Vintage' theme that Collins established in her debut EP, and the visuals add a lot to the song and the message, unlike many lyrics videos. The end of the video is almost a performance video, with the lyrics still written on the screen, while Collins belts her heart out just as she says she'll keep doing in the song. And hopefully, she'll continue, as country music needs Ruthie Collins and "Dear Dolly."
