Amanda Shires Shares ‘Take It Like A Man’ Single & Announces Fall Tour 2022
The Nashville based singer-songwriter accompanied the title track from her forthcoming studio album with the announcement of an extensive fall tour.
The follow-up to the Nashville-based singer-songwriter’s 2021 holiday album For Christmas was produced by Lawrence Rothman. Take It Like A Man was both penned and tracked during lockdown and features Amanda’s husband, Jason Isbell, on several songs. The 10-track LP also includes guest appearances from Maren Morris and Brittney Spencer. Shires previously released the album’s lead single, “Hawk For The Dove.”
“Take It Like A Man” was co-written by Shires and Rothman. Initially, Amanda wrote the song’s final line as “take it like a man” but wound up changing the lyric to “take it like Amanda” at the end of the session. “I realized you can try and do what they say and take it like a man and show that you can withstand anything. But truly you can only take it like yourself,” Shires explained.
The title track arrived with a live music video filmed by Weston Heflin at Nashville’s famed Columbia Records studio. Shires was backed by Isbell on guitar, bassist Jimbo Hart, drummer Julian Dorio, keyboardist Peter Levin and a string section consisting of Austin Hoke, Kristin Weber and Josee Weigand.
