Country recording artist, Kaylee Rutland, has released her new single, “Do You,” which is now available on iTunes, Apple Music, Amazon, and Spotify.
The inspiration behind the new track originated from an idea that Rutland had in wanting to instill a positive message in her younger sister as well as young listeners. “Do You” is intended to encourage young women that going outside the “status-quo” is something to be celebrated.
Rutland adds, “‘Do You’ enforces the idea that young women should find comfort and pride in who they are. It is also a reminder to take the images we see on social media with a grain of salt. No one is perfect, regardless of his or her follower count. This song is a call for each of us to essentially just ‘do you’ and not worry about fitting into the mold that society has created for young women.”
Rutland co-wrote the song with three-time Grammy-nominee and longtime producer/mentor, Jamie O’Neal, along with Minnie Murphy. A video for “Do You” will be shot and released in the coming months.
