Are you ready for revenge? Your new go-to payback song has arrived, courtesy of the ultimate girl gang, the Highway Women. "Dead Man Walking," the lead single off their forthcoming EP.
The 21st century's answer to "Goodbye Earl," "Dead Man Walking" is bound to become a favorite for fans of The Chicks. Drew Haley, Kristen Kae, Jess Paige and Bailey James' voices meld together flawlessly. This track's fierce mix of rich lead vocals and spot-on harmonies will give you goosebumps as you listen to the story of a womanizing man who's wronged the Highway Women. As the lyrics accuse him of lying and cheating, you can hear the ladies' desire to seek vengeance in their powerful, emotional voices, making this the perfect song to shout. You won't find a more satisfyingly-singable refrain! Rocking electric guitar and driving percussion elevate the chorus, ensuring this country tune will be celebrated by rock and pop fans as well.
If you are in need of a breakup anthem, look no further. "Dead Man Walking" will undoubtedly be blasting through your car speakers on repeat.
