Yeah, she writes happy, fairy-talesque songs too, but it's the getting even ones that get noticed.
Now here's the official music video for a very innocent looking 16-year-old Payton Rae singing with gusto about a cheating boyfriend, who I also assume is a 16-ish year old teenager, in a song called Stomp the Fire Out.
She sounds like a young Kellie Pickler to me. Cute.
So were cheating boyfriends at 16 always an issue or is this a new norm for the new millenium? I can't remember having issues with such things at 16, but then maybe I was fortunate or just clueless.
I'm starting to think that the country singers out there who are parents to teenagers need to start putting out how-to songs to teach teenage boys how to be faithful and nice and quit breaking little girls hearts to counteract this trend of teen girls singing about cheating -- at least until they're old enough to deal with it like an adult....you know, by drinking.
You can find out more about Payton Rae on her website.
