Rachel Wammack, "My Boyfriend Doesn't Speak for Me Anymore"
This empowering anthem of independence should come with a side of finger snaps. "I've never been much of a shouter / but something inside said get a little louder," sings newcomer Rachel Wammack, announcing her arrival with a roar on "My Boyfriend Doesn't Speak for Me Anymore." Mixing the power-pop pipes of Adele with the women-first attitude of Loretta Lynn, the Muscle Shoals, Alabama, native is a dynamic new country voice for the genre – one not just with flourish, but with a message.
