Penned by Kennedy alongside David Devaul, Joe Fox, and Cameron Bedell, this track is more than just a song; it’s a testament to Kennedy’s resilience and dedication to her true self. After facing the challenges of being dropped from her former label, Kennedy emerges stronger and more authentic than ever. “I Ain’t A Cowgirl” is her anthem of self-empowerment, urging listeners to stand tall and embrace their individuality.

Kennedy’s sweet tone and emotive delivery bring the lyrics to life, making it impossible not to feel the sincerity behind every word. The song’s message of staying true to oneself resonates deeply, reminding us all to hold onto what is genuine and meaningful.

“When I moved to Nashville I soaked up everything everyone said. I took notes from the tastemakers in town and took their opinions as facts,” shares Kennedy in a press statement. “I thought that in order to succeed I had to follow this formula - stay in the box. Sometimes it’s hard to stand up for yourself and do something that’s never been done before. It’s scary. But I learned that in order to grow and in order to feel true happiness in my heart I have to stand up for myself and be comfortable coloring outside of the box. Not everyone will be okay with that and that’s okay.”

Adding in an extra layer serendipity, Kennedy's collaboration on Beyoncé's "Cowboy Carter" album adds an extra layer of meaning to "I Ain't A Cowgirl." Having sung the poignant line "take these broken wings and learn to fly" on "Blackbiird," Kennedy embodies the same mentality of resilience and trusting the process in her own music. It's a beautiful synchronicity that further underscores the authenticity of her artistry.

Beyond its musical merits, “I Ain’t A Cowgirl” also serves as a visual treat. The accompanying music video captures the essence of Kennedy’s journey, blending professional flair with a touch of journalistic storytelling. From sweeping landscapes to intimate moments, the video encapsulates the spirit of the song, leaving viewers captivated from start to finish.

As a rising star in the country music scene, Tiera Kennedy is proving herself to be a force to be reckoned with. With “I Ain’t A Cowgirl,” she solidifies her place as a buzzworthy talent, ready to take on the next chapter of her career with passion and authenticity. So, saddle up and take a ride with Tiera Kennedy as she reminds us all that being true to ourselves is the ultimate measure of success.
