Misty Dawn Is No ‘Cowgirl Cliché” With New Song (Review)
Misty Dawn is a free spirit. She isn’t tied down by labels or even her roots; no, she wanders wherever her heart takes her.
In her new song “Cowgirl Cliché,” she ventures far and away physical boundaries of her home to live “a life that’s wild and free” on the lonesome prairie – or wherever she roams. She has no concrete plans, and all she knows is that she can’t be held down or held back. Misty Dawn’s performance is evocative and carries a timeless appeal, particularly in the way her vocals carve out the lyrics with emotional intensity.
“Take the girl out of the south, but she’ll always be a little cowgirl cliché,” sings Dawn, her voice angelic and wispy. She yearns for something better for her life, even if that means severing ties with friends and family. She’s a tumbleweed, after all. She ditches the boots and tries with all her might not to become a stereotypical country girl. But as she surmises, there’s no getting rid of what pumps in her blood.
