“Girl” is currently No. 31 on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart after three weeks. Penned by Maren, Sarah Aarons and Greg Kurstin, who also produced the song, “Girl” features the encouraging chorus: “Girl, don’t hang your head low / Don’t lose your halo / Everyone’s gonna be okay, baby, girl.”
“The story behind my single, ‘Girl,’ started as something I was saying to another woman, like, ‘We don’t need to be competitive with each other,’” says Maren. “And then I kind of realized that I was talking to myself, like, ‘I don’t need to be so competitive with myself, I am enough.’ And it just became a really powerful concept after that point. I’m so excited it’s out.”
