Kristy James’ new single “Push” is a really gutsy girl power anthem. In the vein of powerful country women like Miranda Lambert or Gretchen Wilson, the Newcastle singer attacks the vocals in this track about taking chances.

The glammed-up video might seem a little left-of-centre for a country artist, but Kristy felt right at home.

“In another life I spent a lot of time dancing,” she explained. “From the moment I saw Dirty Dancing I knew I had to be able to do it.”

Kristy is currently preparing to head to Nashville to write music for her sophomore EP, which should drop in August.
