Eora/Sydney-based pop-country sensation Rachael Fahim has just revealed her stirring new single City Girls In The Country – a delectable new anthem that steers Rachael towards her country music roots.
A song born from collaborations across multiple timelines with hit songwriters Rosi Golan (Little Big Town, Christina Aguilera), David ‘Messy’ Mescon (Nicki Minaj, Ariana Grande) and the Banton Bros (LARA D), brought to life by acclaimed producers Greg Stace (Boy & Bear, Gordi, COTERIE) and mixer Robby Desa (The Veronicas, Gretta Ray), City Girls In The Country is a rapturous slice of provincial virtuosity. Boasting a range of sundry elements from multiple genres, its elegant pop hooks, country-rock riffs and irresistible charisma spotlight the clichÃ© breaking artist’s evolution and growth.
Rachael talks about the meaning behind City Girls In The Country: “As a city born country artist of Lebanese decent, Iâ€™ve constantly been challenged about my country music eligibility, but for me, country music has always been a place of storytelling, a platform of the underdog to speak out and a place to connect with real people. Country music is evolving and becoming the most adored genre across the globe, a voice for everybody, no matter what your background or story is! This song is an anthem for doing what you love, being who you want to be, embracing what is different and not really carting about what other people think or say! Fuck yeah, city girls can be country too.â€
Previous single Darts In The Dark received widespread support from Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music, YouTube Music, Country Town, Music Feeds, Backseat Mafia, Sunburnt Country, AAA Backstage, Good Call Live, and Something You Said. It was also added to Triple M Country, KIX Country and iHeartRadio Country, and the music video peaked at #1 on CMT Australia.
Rachael Fahim‘s biggest hit on country radio, Middle Ground, spent five weeks at #1 on the official Australian Country Singles Airplay Chart in 2021. She is Australia’s second most streamed female country artist of all time â€“ only sitting behind living country legend Kasey Chambers â€“ with over 17 million streams to date across past singles.
The 2017 Toyota Star Maker and CMC Music Award Nominee winner has also been globally promoted as a ‘Countrywide’ feature artist on Apple Music and an ‘Artist to Watch’ on Spotify.
