Girl Scouts Anthem Takes Inspiration From Music City and Nashville Songwriters
The Girl Scouts of the USA have shared a music video filled not only with girl power, but also with the beautiful sights and inspiration of Music City. Press play above to watch the brand-new music video, which highlights all the roles available to girls and women in the music industry.
Back in 2016, two Nashville songwriters, Liz Rose and Emily Shackleton, helped the Girls Scouts of the USA by writing their first original song, "Watch Me Shine." The Girl Scouts were in good hands when trying to create a song that matched the spirit of their organization: Digital Music News reported that Rose has worked with Tim McGraw and Taylor Swift, while Shackelton has written material for David Cook and Reba McEntire.
Although"Watch Me Shine" was originally released in 2016, an accompanying music video for the song was just released on Monday (July 16.) The video centers around one girl who dreams of being an artist. Luckily for her, she lives in Nashville and has the opportunity to not only perform at various open mic nights but also meet with some helpful Nashville women. Rose is seen in the video helping the girl write her music while Shackelton is seen recording the song in a recording booth.
Lynn Godfrey, The Chief Marketing and Communications Officer for the Girl Scouts, previously told Digital Music News, "Music has always been an integral part of Girl Scout tradition and an important tool for bringing people together. Watch Me Shine’ is a rallying cry for G.I.R.L.s to lead in their everyday lives. We anticipate this song will inspire girls to empower themselves, go outside of their comfort zones, and conquer any obstacle they face, the Girl Scout way."
