Now this is how you do it. Have you listened to and watched some of those country music videos of late?

The up-and-coming country duo has released a music video for their debut single, “Girl in a Country Song,” flipping the tables on the bros and putting them in skimpy Daisy Dukes for a change. Oh, it’s as amazing as it sounds. Check it out:

What we have here is a musical revolution — a catchy tune with a great message, accompanied by an even better music video highlighting the blatancy of country’s misogynist culture. Doesn’t feel so good, fellas, does it? Just for emphasis, can we take a look at this shot again?
