Crystal McGrath releases female empowerment anthem and asks why it’s always “About A Boy”


June 11, 2021 (Nashville, TN) – Canadian country-pop artist Crystal McGrath releases empowering new single “About A Boy.” The single is now available on all digital streaming platforms.

In her new single, “About a Boy,” Crystal McGrath blends a pop drum beat with a traditional country backing band to create a sound that is wholly her own. Like a chocolate-vanilla swirl ice cream cone, “About a Boy” blends two very different musical flavors into something that any music fan will enjoy. Crystal McGrath’s voice only adds to the musical beauty of this track. With a timbre that sounds something like a mix of Miranda Lambert and Trisha Yearwood, McGrath’s voice is just as unique and wonderful as the instrumentation on “About a Boy.” Another standout element of “About a Boy” is the lyrics. McGrath asks the question, “Why is it always about a boy?” This line can have so many different meanings to so many different people. Why do female protagonists always have to be chasing after “Mr. Perfect?” Why are most country songs sung by women about the men that they love, have cheated on them, or got away? Why is it assumed that the man will alter a woman’s life in some unexplainable way? All of these questions are up to the listener to decide as “About a Boy” takes the listener on a musical journey. “About a Boy’s” tight pop drumbeat mixed with the sounds of electric guitars, pedal steels, and banjos makes it an instant classic in both the worlds of pop and country music.
