"You got this baby," the country star sings on the girl power track, her first original music in 12 years, since 2007's GRAMMY-nominated Heaven, Heartache and the Power of Love. She continues, "Stretchin' for stars on our tip toe hearts / Tryin' to get our big dreams off the ground / Like every girl in this town."
"It's an emotional song, because the lyrics remind me of that little girl who believed anything and everything was possible. It's something we all share in common, and I love being reminded it's OK to just be me," Yearwood said.
The song was released with a lyric video featuring childhood photos of the vocal powerhouse, along with fan's photos submitted via social media, creating a yearbook of sorts of fellow bada** women.
During the CMT Music Awards last night, Yearwood shared a major girl power moment as she, along with Lauren Alaina, Carly Pearce, Martina McBride, RaeLynn and Deana Carter, joined Brandi Carlile and Tanya Tucker on stage during their moving performance of "Delta Dawn." Country icon Tucker earned her first GRAMMY nod at the 15th GRAMMY Awards for the 1972 song. Yearwood earned her first nomination at the 34th GRAMMY Awards, for her breakout hit, 1991's "She's in Love With the Boy."
