Indigo Girls Share ‘Country Radio’ Single


Indigo Girls shared a new single called “Country Radio.” The track will appear on the legendary duo’s forthcoming album, Look Long, arriving on May 22 through Rounder Records.

Indigo Girls’ Emily Saliers penned “Country Radio” and the tune has found its way into Emily and Amy Ray’s live rotation. “I can tell it’s resonating with people,” Saliers said in a statement. “When I get to that line, ‘I’m just a gay kid who loves country radio,’ there’s an audible verbal response from the audience.”

“This song is the way I felt doing those four-hour drives from Nashville to Atlanta, listening to country music radio,” Saliers remembered. “I could almost put my own life story in these songs, but I can’t. There are gender divisions and heteronormative realities. There’s a lot of self-homophobia that I’ve had to work on in my own life that plays into this as well.”
