Rita Wilson is back with new music!
The actress and singer just dropped a new tune this week called “Where’s My Country Song?” as a tribute to hard-working women everywhere.
Wilson, who co-wrote the song with “American Idol’s” Lee DeWyze, explained in a statement, “I was thinking about all the women in our country, doing their jobs, and how they have always helped our country run efficiently. Women have always been pillars of strength, but now with coronavirus, millions of women comprise the essential workers who are on the front lines, and so critical to our nation.”
She was also inspired by her own mom, saying, “My mom was a homemaker. She worked hard and sacrificed, never complaining. She showed me there was honor in her work, whether it was cooking, cleaning, sewing, or caring for her children. Women understand the experience of taking pride in what they do.”
The song is for women wearing many hats and juggling work, school, caretaking, and so much more with “quiet dignity.” Wilson said, “This song is for them.”
