Nettles releases “I Can Do Hard Things”
GRAMMY Award-winning entertainer Jennifer Nettles has released a new song titled “I Can Do Hard Things” via Big Machine Records, in which she details what it means to be a grown woman. She accompanied the song with a short essay on Medium.com explaining her inspiration for writing the song.
“This song for me is a truth telling, a blood letting, a real-life heart opening to what it means to be a grown woman. It is my offering to honor the reality that, as I like to say, ‘everything is everything,'” Nettles writes.
“As I became a woman, and most certainly upon maturing into a mother, I came to see that we live in the ‘in between,’ in the grey, and that sometimes things can be both happy AND sad.”
Nettles is not only a moth, but also a GRAMMY award winning singer/songwriter who has sold millions of albums as a solo artist and as one half of Suglarland who made a comeback last year after five years. Her acting chops have landed her roles on Broadway as Roxie Hart in Chicago and on the small screen in Dolly Parton’s Coat of Many Colors and it’s followup Christmas of Many Colors. She will star in Focus Features’ forthcoming Harriet Tubman biopic titled Harriet.
